Out With the Old......

Yes, I continue to simplify.  I made REALLY good progress this past weekend.  I went through my closet and dresser.  There's a HUGE box to be taken to Goodwill and several smaller ones to put with all the other yard sale stuff.  The final stack of unwanted magazines isvin the recycle pile.   I sorted through my (pre-digital) photos that were in three cardboard, under-the-bed storage boxes and got rid of a large bagful of blurry, out of focus shots.  The rest are now arranged neatly in one larger plastic, under-the-bed storage box.  So ~ I'm happy with making a little dent in simplifying my life.  I got rid of a lot of stuff!

I also found something to help with future the kitchen, I think.
I bought this cute wire rack (at Walmart) and two pint-size mason jars and I'll be filling the jars with some cute pens and pencils, or maybe some straws.

who strengthens me".

Hi Marie! I'm so glad to know someone's getting something accomplished, cause it ain't me honey. Sounds like you made some good headway. That little mason jar holder is cute! We could all use a little simplifying in our lives. If I was to start my life over it would be so much more country and so much more simple. You photos came out great.

XXOO's...Tracy :)

Good job with the simplifying. I wish I could say the same. I've made several attempts at cleaning up my craft room once again only to mess it up again.

I love the little rack. I need something like that as I am always looking for a pen or a pencil. Very cute idea!
