In fear that I was only '3 cats away' from being a hoarder,
(see 3 Cats Away ~ Part I)
I decided to get rid of some of my stuff.
The first things I got rid of were 217 assorted magazines
to friends/co-workers which cleared up 3 book shelves.
That leaves me a paltry 57 of my favorite assorted
craft, photography and gardening magazines
which fit onto one shelf.
While I could not part with any of my cat mugs,
I did get rid of a bunch of others
including my small collection of
Norman Rockwell mugs.
This cleared up almost a
full shelf in my kitchen cupboards.
I got rid of some clothes out of my 2 closets
which freed up some space.
After all, how many cream/beige sweaters
does a girl need?? So off to
Community Living my lovely clothes go.
I tried to go with if I hadn't worn it for
the 2nd winter in a row, it had to leave my closet.
I was doing pretty good until I went to Regina on Friday.
That's when my good intentions of de-cluttering went awry.
For even though I have many
cute little clips already...
cute green and white stripy clips on a craft shelf
when I saw these adorable clothes pin magnetic clips
for only a $1.50 for a package of 4 at Michael's...
well... I had to have them!
Actually, I had to have 3 boxes of them!!
(I'm giving some to the girls at work ~ really I will!)
And my greatest weakness ~ new journals!
Even though, as I reported to you in Part I of this post
that I had 20 new journals sitting on a shelf in my computer room
(with 7 journals being used scattered around home and office)
I could not resist buying a few more.
Well... 6 more to be exact.
But the 3 little ones were in a package together
so really that should only count as 1.
sigh... does anyone know of any
