103 more pounds, 528 total!
Today, I donated nearly 103 pounds of miscellaneous, picture frames, cookie tins, books, baskets and nick-knacks, extra blankets and afghans, curtains, video shelf and ironing board.
Prior to the point I started counting, I sold a book case (30 lbs?), and at least 4 bags of clothes (120 lbs?–and four bags is way underestimating), three sets of Corelle dishes (15 lbs?), 3-5 large suitcases, and 30 pounds of fabric… I also mailed off 40 pounds of books (in addition to the others I packed to sell), and last Monday donated a bunch of kitchen utensils and such (3 larger boxes), which was definitely more than 50 pounds.
So far total pounds (including what’s listed on the other entries): at least 528 I have my doubts about making it to a ton. That’s quite a bit of weight. But then again I look around and realize just how much further I have to go. After all, I’m over a quarter ton already, and I deliberately underestimated what I didn’t weigh of that.
People still think I’m a little nuts. But it is so nice to be rid of it all. I had no idea I had most of what I’ve donated. which is a little irritating. How can a person not see that much stuff sitting around?
