de-clutter, pack, clean - blog - repeat

*all in all it feels great to be cleaning, and boxing and de-cluttering and discovering...oh yeah, the discovery's that you make when you go through the piles of boxes in the closet...
"I forgot I had these!!!"
or
"why do I have so many of these, I have a problem"  those are my thoughts when I was boxing up ALL my old ornaments from Christmas, my 'obsession' I call it...and this year I made 4 more wreaths and gave 3 away... and I have all these boxes of usable ornaments left.... (hahah can't find picture now... like THAT's unusual) but let me tell you there were 5 boxes (regular plastic bins) full of Gold, Red, Green, Blue, Pink and Silver ornaments... to use on wreaths whenever I get the time to create again... (and that does not include the 4 boxes of carefully stored antique ornaments)  it's a sickness.

I also have been craig-listing a few of our belongings...
and if postage wasn't so expensive (did you know it went up Jan 1st, not the 44cent postage but all packages large and small, heavy and light)  I'd sell stuff on ebay.. but that postage just kills all deals!  Maybe a garage sale is in our future????? and you all know that Sequim is the home of the killer garage sales!!!

All in all it feels good to LOVE it or LOSE IT

I didn't know postage on packages went up again. Geez, it's painful these days!

GUILTY! Oh good grief, WHY do I need 15 of the same things? Love the new blog colors!

Postage in Canada is prohibitive! You are still likely less expensive than here. I didn't know about the killer garage sales in Sequim - I am thinking that would be a great excuse to jump on the ferry! Hugs
