In the meantime, have you heard about the MASSIVE blogger rummage sale event this Saturday? No? Ok, go here and read this! I'll wait... Caught up? Great! So there is this huge rummage sale with all proceeds going to charity. So I'm cleaning up and clearing out. Or at least a little bit. So far the lists are in my head and my Friday day off will involve packing them up and loading them in the car.
I have to confess my natural instinct is to hold on to things. I have yet to go all Hoarders on anyone but I like stuff. It's true. So any purge is both desired and feared in my brain. So I thought we'd play a little game. Below are three items and I'd like you to decide if they should stay or go. (Mr. Goat does has veto power as I didn't get a chance to ask him about these this morning).
Item 1: Glass pitcher from my Grandma's house. (excuse the dust)
This was one of the items gathered when my grandma moved out of her house and into a senior living apartment facility two years ago. Mr. Goat and I loved the shape and while it has a small crack in the handle it is still watertight. We had visions of a future house with a future deck being all adult-like and sipping fresh lemonade or sangria out in the sun while the kids played on the swing set. Two years later it still sits on top of our refrigerator collecting dust as it doesn't really fit in our cabinets. Should it stay or go?
Item 2: Hand painted fan
This isn't sentimental necessarily, just something I bought that I thought was pretty. It came from a vendor at the mall in fact. But I do think it is lovely. However it hasn't been up since we moved. It really ended up being a piece that didn't work with most of our other stuff and as wall space is a premium in our apartment it has lived in the closet since then. Should it stay or go?
Item 3: The 2003 Santa Bears from Marshall Fields
Why? Well...meet Mistletoe. (Mistletoe stays)
So those are my three items. Help me decide what to keep and get rid of. Oh and come to the rummage sale on Saturday. Besides all my stuff there are over 30 people bringing things so you are sure to find something you'll like.
