Yesterday, I gave my sister clothes that I no longer fit into (bras, t-shirts and pants/shorts). It was a big bag full of them, which was really good! I am pretty glad that I was able to rid myself of them.

Counting: I also sent my sister with a bag full of Candy for my Aunt’s child. Which I am not sure if she is going to too happy about, however I couldn’t keep it in my house any longer :/ Anyway, it was starbursts, pixie sticks, sweet tarts, etc.

Year 2013 Review, Updates and Plans for the Future

Review: This year I gave away 26 different types of things, however gave away tons of similar items (like clothing to the Salvation Army and my sister).

I will continue to work on this goal and will continue to give things away. But I know its going to be hard for me to come up with 50 “different” types of things to give away. I still need to get rid of 23 different types of objects. Hmm… what could I possibly continue to give away.

Plans for the future: What could I possibly give away??
1. Hats
2. Shall or Scarf?
3. Jewelry (costume of course)
4. Dishes
5. Backpacks
6. Crayons
7. Food (like canned food for homeless shelter or dog food)
8. Picture Frames
9. Pens, Highlighters
10. Furniture
11. Games
12. Wallets
13. Towels
14. Blankets (for the humane society)
15. Magazines

So that’s a good list, if I do that then I will be that much closer to my goal. I’ll also continue to read other’s posts so that I can any ideas that others are doing to my list.

okay I made another group of donation items to take in tomorrow, but it’s pretty much all of the same things (clothes, purses, books, etc)... the only things that are different that I can add to the list are: napkin holder

oh and we are going to give Alex’s friend some doggie clothes.
