Keeping this October goal in mind...
This is the point of cleaning out!
When I planned this 20 Days of Wiping the Slate Clean I was unrealistic. I did not block off chunks of time for the grocery store, laundry, buying soccer gear, sick time for kids, conversations about autism, school meetings, etc. I forgot to add in time with friends and cooking and cleaning and birthdays and soccer trips. I forget to leave in some margin, some white space. What was I thinking?
But I have scheduled a Habitat for Humanity pick up for the good furniture that I do not need. So that feels right. I'm going to be looking in every nook and cranny. I will be thorough. In fact, I should probably tell my friends and neighbors. What a good idea! Habitat for Humanity has volunteers who will come to your house to pick up good furniture and other items. Habitat for Humanity's ReSTORE sells donated items to make money to help people gain affordable housing. I really like that! To see a list of what is needed for the Bangor, Maine store, click here.
