Month of Motivation: I’m Stuffed
July 6, 2006 @ 5:09 am | Filed under: Month of Motivation, The Cross-Country Move
I’m so motivated it hurts. Especially in my lower back. Note to self: bend at the knees, not waist. But I’m making headway. Sent four big bags of Stuff to the thrift shop this weekend, and put just about as many out for the trashmen this morning. But it feels a bit like trying to melt an iceberg with a blow dryer. There’s a long way to go…
I want a Stuff Collector to come along and take away my Stuff. The wonderful Lesley Austin of Small Meadow Press blogged today about a company that will take Stuff of the Electronic Variety off your hands, wipe its memory clean, and recycle it—if you’re willing to pay the shipping costs. Which I am not. I’ll just have to go on melting my own icebergs.

Have you checked to see if there is a Freecycle in your area? When I moved a few months ago, I got rid of 1/3 of all our stuff through freecycle, and it’s great! People just come and take your stuff!

Freecycle is great, or if you have a lot of stuff to donate, often the Salvation Army or Good Will will send a truck to pick it up. If it’s trash, then you can hire a hauling service to come and get it in one load – around here, it runs about 50 dollars.
I’m proud of you for sticking with the decluttering! Woooo!
