More adventures in getting rid of stuff. Stuff that is books. I know I have other stuff, but I have more books than anything else. And many, many of them are still living on my floor right now. Eventually maybe they'll actually be on my shelves.
In the meantime, this has been an incredibly busy work week, so I've not sorted through any more recently to pass on. Here's what I got rid of last week, though. (Quite a bit more than three things!)
Not pictured, the six books I just stuffed into the give-away bag...books I'm too lazy to go get back out of the bag and take pictures of.
Plenty of the stuff here is aspirational. I bought it thinking we'd eventually get around to using it...and that just never happened. Whereas I was a total workbook kid, my own kid is not.
I passed on 48 (!) magazines to my mom to do with what she would. Keep 'em, recycle 'em, pass 'em on. I love the idea of magazines, but I really one day need to stop buying them. And, actually, none of these were new. The oldest was from 1998 and the most recent was probably several years old. I did keep some sewing magazines because one day I might learn to sew. (But I might need this one day. Ok, yeah, I see how I sound like I've got a clutter problem.)
Can't let go: Nancy Pearl's Rule of 50. Just heard mention of it at the end of an SYSK episode. I have finally really stopped finishing every book I start. Honestly, part of this is because I just can't finish all the books I check out from the library before the library would like them back.
