Happy Thanksgiving! Despite some setbacks in my life lately, I truly AM grateful for the blessings in my life. And those blessings are not “things.” They are family, friends, opportunities, good health, great co-workers, fuzzy animals, etc. The “things” that I am getting rid of each week have given me some joy, sure, but it’s fleeting. What I hope is that these things that I am parting with can bring some joy to others, even if it’s only momentary for them as well. And then, perhaps, they will pass on the things to others. In this way, more people can share in fewer things.

Inspired by Simple.Organized.Life, I am committing to a 10 Things Challenge which involves me getting rid of (at least) 10 things every week. Since I am in a simplifying and decluttering mode lately, this is perfect for me.

Each week, I will post my list of 10 things, a photo, and where they are going. Wish me luck!

Week One:



1. Hula hoop – Goodwill

2. Yarn (2 skeins count as 1 item) – the crafty folks at work

3. Knitting needles – work

4. Watercolor paints – work

5. Counted cross-stitch pattern books (5 count as 1 item) – work

6. Cat perpetual calendar – Goodwill

7. Talking pedometer – Goodwill

8. Mini office supplies – Goodwill

9. Craft autumn leaves – work

10. Mini-composition books – work
