  1. I don’t have any trinkets collecting dust but I do have some craft things that are gathering dust. I am trying to find time to finish a couple of projects and then they will be gone.

  2. I have a sewing cutting board that I will put in garage sale tomorrow. I gave my sewing machine to granddaughter 5 years ago, have no idea why I still have this.

    Update on garage sale. Only have one heavy Mexican flower pot left, a few misc items and 2 tall bar stools left. My granddaughters have a lot of stuff left to sell. I hope what’s left at the end of sale tomorrow will go straight to a donation center and clothes go to mission.

  3. Results of this week’s mini missions –

    Donate pile: cookie jar (black and white), Tupperware container (plastic), black work blouse (clothing), quilting rack and accessories and electric griddle (cabinet I haven’t looked in for awhile), decorative perfume bottle (dust collector).

    Trashed – shelf liner (scraps from lining kitchen cabinets).

    A very good decluttering week. Thanks for the inspiration Colleen!
