So, here is my one item for July 1:
|July 1 Decluttering|
This sewing machine stopped working properly several years ago. Something is wrong with the bobbin. I kept it thinking I will get it repaired, but I never did. Even after I bought a new sewing machine to replace it, I never got around to getting rid of it. I guess I felt it was wasteful. No doubt all it needs is a simple repair and it would work fine. But I'm afraid the cost of a repair would be almost as much as a new machine (this machine cost $99 plus tax; my new machine cost $89 plus tax; they are both very basic versions, but good enough for the type of sewing I do).
Two items for July 2:
|July 2 Decluttering|
Two painted wooden boxes. They were gifts received several years ago and I've tried to find uses for them ever since. I used to store stationery in them, at one time. But they've sat empty on a shelf for at least the past couple of years, if not more. Time to let them go, I think.
This method of decluttering reminds me of the song The 12 Days of Christmas! All together now:
On the first day of July, Bless did declutter,
a sewing machine with a broken bobbin.
On the second day of July, Bless did declutter,
two painted boxes (and a sewing machine with a broken bobbin).
LOL. Additional verses to follow!
I've spent a rather relaxed day, today, watching TV, going on-line, cutting more strips of fabric for my rag rug, etc. I did do a load of dishes and tidied the kitchen (shined the sink, wiped the stove top, cleaned the counters, etc.) Spoke on the phone with a cousin and an aunt who called. Later in the evening, two of my cousins and an aunt visited me. I also exchanged emails with a friend.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A relaxed day
- A tidy kitchen
- Phone calls and visits from family
- Exchanging emails with a friend
- Cooler temperatures
How was your Saturday? Anyone else wants to join me in decluttering in July?
