Who's up for some P*rn this morning?
The Decluttering kind of course!
1 Pee Wee's Playhouse VHS tape
2 Books on Healing Foods
7 Bath Poofs
a buttload of Stickers
1 Refrigerator Magnet
1 Fisher-Price toy(vintage)
2 Silver plated Swan Candle and Flower Holders
Here's a close-up of those. I picked them up at Sallie's years ago and thought when we entertained I could make use of them.....
1 willow basket
1 bamboo box
3 women's jackets/coats
1 set of men's thermals
A pile of toys......
Now I know you are sitting there thinking, "Gee, she is the meanest mommy in the world, not letting her kids open/play with their Happy Meal toys."
"Gee, she let her kids eat waaaay too much fast food!"
Considering this is a pile of Kid Meal toys from 3 kids and it spans all the fast food they ate over a 15 year period, they really didn't eat chicken-like nugget food that often.
Ok, it's not ALL the kid meal toys they got growing up since they did open and play with more of these things than I would care to recall....especially after stepping on way too many of them as I ran the obstacle course of toys left on the floors of their rooms over the years.
And yes, I did withhold the toys as a rule when they ordered a Happy type Meal. Since I didn't want them having me buy food they didn't really want to eat, just to get a toy, this policy kept them from asking for food when they weren't really hungry. We weren't throwing out/wasting food or money.
(Let's not talk about all the kids' meals "I" bought to get teenie beanie babies or pokemon toys.....lol)
I'd keep the toys and we'd dole them out at a later date.....say, when they were bored, on long car trips, as prizes for birthday party games, or when they did something to deserve a 'reward'. So over the years, a large number of these toys didn't get claimed.
Anyway, moving on.....
1 pair Joe Boxer shorts
7 skateboarding themed t-shirts
6 pieces of Cape Cod Cranberry Glass
Before these hit Salvation Army I'm going to try to sell them locally.
Either way, they will be gone by the end of this month.
So that's my 1st June decluttering booty.
Are you getting rid of junk this month too?
