Wow, it's been a while since that first post! But I finally was able to put together a purge this past weekend.
My daughter and I both went through our closets, and she filtered through her stuffed animals and books to boot! In total, we were able to collect 2 grocery bags full of clothes, one kitchen size garbage bag of stuffed animals, a box of children's books (about 20 or so?) and one older crock-pot (it still worked, I just had 3, and did't use this one anymore). We delivered them to the local community action office on Sunday evening.
Man, did that feel good!
Next up, going through the movie collection - hopefully this weekend.
