Posted by

I’ve got some stuff going out this week that might be of interest to y’all. \FREE STUFF to the people! First: A laptop bag by Simple. I thought it would fit things they way I wanted and it didn’t really. So I would be happy to gift it to someone who has been wanting a […]

Purge Thursday: Actual Trash

Posted by

Right now my energy for organizing freecycle or going to the thrift store is nil, so I looked around the home office here and found a mess of clutter, like, can’t even access the shelves in here clutter. It’s a big job but for a start: A tote bag a friend made me in 1995 […]

Purge Thursday: Mess o’ Cassettes

Posted by

Probably just about everyone reading this is of the right generation to have been witness to the prevalence of the cassette tape. By the time I was choosing and procuring my own music, cassettes were in their peak of production. Of course, now the nostalgia market has images of the cassette on t-shirts, pillows, purses, […]

Purge Thursday: Revival

Posted by

Remember the optimistic, joyous, burden-removing start I had when I said I was going to get rid of one thing every Thursday?

Well, for me it’s a tough one […]

This week I decided to hit the bookshelves. This is something that will undoubtedly happen again as the weeks wear on and I find myself desperate for things to get rid of. In this particular case, if you don’t know, I’ve been in a book club for 8 years now in which we read about […]

Purge Thursday: Candles

Posted by

I have a box of candles. Some are smelly, some are not. Some are tapers, pillars, votives, etc. They’ve been collecting dust for 4 years. I promise I only lit the ones for this picture that had previously lit – there are plenty of unused. If you want them and you are local (not shippin’ […]

Purge Thursday: Threads

Posted by

Last weekend I had to recruit an ally in the purging project. See, sometimes you let your closet accumulate things you are attached to, things that you are wearing in your head, but are not wearing in reality. At these times, you need someone to remind you WHY you’re not wearing them in reality and […]

Purge Thursday: Last Minute

Posted by

Oh fuck I’m running out of time. OK So I’m getting rid of a pair of chinese slippers (no support!) moccasins that got me through many a renfair (also no support, also haven’t worn in 2 years), a non-working vintage lamp I bought off ebay many moons ago (probably can be fixed if you want […]
