Live A Little - Ditch the Dead Weight

It's summertime and, as they say, the living is easy. Well, easy if you are super organized and can manage two out-of-school kids underfoot when it's too hot to go outside. I'll admit that I am only so-so about filling up the days with gainful entertainment.

Being stuck inside at length also reminds me of all the things I've been meaning to do since early springtime, when I started stockpiling garage sale stuff. It's kind of taken over our lives, making our house look like a junior Hoarders venue.

I finally owned up to the fact that we were never going to have that epic sale, especially now that the temps have surpassed the triple digits for a couple of weeks. We passed the nursery furniture along and it occurred to me that I would like to have our living room back possibly more than making a few bucks. So yesterday we finally schlepped two truckloads of stuff to Goodwill.

Sometimes you need to ditch the dead weight so you can really Live A Little. It truly does lighten your spirits!

  1. That had to feel REALLY good to get that out of there!

  2. I still have half a dozen bins of kids'clothes to take to the consignment store! It's amazing how things pile up...

  3. I totally understand what you mean. The past few days have been spent cleaning out our clutter. It feels so good to get rid of things we don't use anymore.
