As part of the packing process, we (as in me) decided we needed to get rid of 50% of the stuff in our house. We were leaving a 2100 square foot home and moving into . . . well, we have no idea yet, but it will be much smaller. The kids have accumulated a lot of trophies from their time in EAA soccer, basketball and track, so we rounded them up, took a photo to remember them and then sent them off to Goodwill.
This was a theme for months - simplify. I held five garage sales, donated six boxes with hundred of chapter books to Red Pine Elementary, gave away boxes and boxes of craft supplies and daycare supplies as well as furniture and gardening equipment/pots and took at least four minivans full to the Goodwill. How did we accumulate so much stuff?!
