Over the past two weeks, I have sorted, purged, and sorted some more. So far I have a large bag of shoes to donate. I have a large bag of school supplies and small toys all ready to fill our shoeboxes for Operation Christmas child!! The mountains of magazines have been sorted and reduced to just a few.
The clothes have been sorted and the amount to be given away is ridiculous. It was enough to fill 6 giant Ikea bags!!! Some have already been given to friends, the rest will go to families in Oneida, KY.
With only a week left in the month of October, I need to sort the kitchen and get rid of those gadgets that are taking up space and not really being used. I also plan to go through my many stacks of books and reduce them to just a few of my favorites.
This month has helped me look at the items in my home differently. A spirit of contentment is beginning to take root and it is so refreshing.
