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?


About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? http://wp.me/p1CY5z-1R Baptism! http://wp.me/s1CY5z-baptism
