We are busy tidying the house and clearing some space. There are a number of things that we have either never used or haven't used for a long time and so we are letting them go. There have been weekly trips to the Salvation Army Thrift Stores but somehow I end up taking one bag there and returning with half a bag full. It's a slow process. Maybe this will be a bit faster - Online Clothes Swap – Aoetearoa. The swap is only open to NZ residents to keep the postage down and you can see all it's glory here.
I've decided to pass on some summer knitwear that hasn't seen the light of day for at least 2 years. They were all picked with curves in mind, but the sizes varied. One I wished I bought larger and one I loved so much I bought the other colour too.
Meanwhile, the clearing out continues. We needed to reduce the number of blankets we had until they were each refolded and evaluated on their merits. We decided that we do need to keep them all. My dearest commented that really we just like blankets. The problem is more that we really just like stuff. The linen cupboard looks a little tidier, but is in no way less full.
It's slow going, but we will get there eventually.
