Yesterday morning I was asked to donate a White Elephant gift for Tiny Town community BINGO night. If I had anything. Figuring I’d embarrass myself if I showed up with several boxes of items (oh, but I think I could!), I just stuffed a sack full of extras from my “gift stash” in the basement.
Baby boy and I had to come home early from BINGO night, and when the rest of the family arrived, the three-year-old was over the moon about her prize. “Look what I won, Mom!” So proud.
Can you guess?
Uh-huh. It was an item that I had donated just hours before. Geez, I can’t even give my stuff away!
In addition to 11 BINGO gifts (one of which ended up back in my home, but we won’t count that!), I packed up 30 items for Goodwill and have another box started. Not stellar, especially after last month’s fail.
October Total: 41
2010 Total: 542
So… I have 2 months to get rid of 188 items and meet my goal of 730 items for the year. That sounds like a lot, but if I could just spend some time purging in all 3 bedrooms, I’d be set. Pressure’s on!
