The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
It’s getting harder now, a lot harder.
Two weeks ago on the first of Feb I found one item to remove from our house and the next day followed it with two items on the third it was three.
I’m on to Day 15 to 21 now. And the numbers are getting tricky. Twenty eight items departed that first week.
In week two it was seventy seven items in total.
Week three goes up to one hundred and twenty six things!
(gurgling panic noises) one hundred and twenty six things is about a hundred more than week one!
So here goes!
Some odds and sods and bits and pieces.
Fifteen candle type items and tapers.
More candle ish taper things. (Now I know candles are useful in a crisis but I still have a load more. ) Now if you look carefully there’s fifteen again. However I confess to doing my days in the wrong order and a couple of other says this week gave more items than they should so it balances out. The tidy gene wanted groups of things where possible.
Children’s books. (For the book donation)
What can I say? That cupboard full of plastic containers now has all matching lids and these spare lids are going to become a project made by university students who are making models.
Tights, the drawer of overflowing under goods is positively skipping with the reduced weight borne of loosing a load of tights.
So after tights come socks don’t they? The similarly over burdened sock drawer is now a deal lighter too. And a few escapees from the man sock drawer were relocated too.
Without wanting to sound sanctimonious I often tidy my sock and tights drawers but having this culling strategy was way more positive. I did find it hard to dispose of things that are still useful or wearable but there are still many many socks in the drawer.
So one or two days were mildly incorrectly numbered but the overall total works. (There’s twenty six lids, honest!)
(Next week I’m away a bit so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to continue on time. But I’m intending to catch up as soon as I can! )
