I lost 40 pounds!!
OK, I’ve been wanting to say something like that. I don’t actually know how many pounds of stuff I donated today, but it was quite a heavy bag and a probably five pound box. I wish I’d started weighing things at the very beginning and could total how much has been donated so far. It would have been fun by this point.
Today I took the silverware and plastic table cloths for a wedding that never was to the church for donation. They were quite happy to get them. I should have thought of that before. I also gave the hangars to the laundromat. They have the regular laundromat plus a “pay per pound” wash, and the woman at the counter was THRILLED to get the hangars. My parents were upset that I’d given away wire hangars because “someday they won’t make those anymore!” Good grief, they don’t make rotary phones anymore either, but that doesn’t mean we should hoard them.
My parents really don’t understand the concept of living with less, living more sustainably, or living in a smaller space. I was raised in an approximately 800 square foot house. There were four of us. Why am I living by myself in 960?
