Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.
Been really bad at getting what I want done around here. Felt really crappy when we were at Home Depot last night looking around and I found an 8cu ft upright freezer for $279 and I could not get it. Even though the sale ends Sunday the 8th, there is no way I can get ready to even bring it in here. The laundry room is packed as well as everywhere else. So now I got to push myself to get going and work towards that as my goal so next time they are on sale I can get one. Will give me time to research one because the reviews on the one we seen last night had more negative than positive.
Today I got some of the kitchen cleaned and a bunch of stuff tossed in the trash bags. I need to get some boxes to put items to donate in. Went through some of our son's school papers from this year that I had out and never realized how much there really was. Keeping his Science and Immigration projects as well as report cards. Got all that homework that came back and tests he had that can go. Hate to get rid of any of it, but takes up way to much room. Plus starting Middle School I know I'll have new stuff all over again.
Got some more craft stuff to drop off at my friends house. I do got a bunch of VHS and dvd's (all kid shows) that I haven't decided what to do yet. Got a couple Thomas the Train VHS tapes as well as Bob the Builder and a few others. With dvd's I got The Doddle Bops, Jo-Jo's Circus, Lazy Town and I think a few others.
Also found a pile of placemats that he wanted when he was little and never used. As well as one of those blue metal and padded folding tables and 1 yellow metal and padded folding chair. The red chair never made it...lol
Would love to have a yard sale to get some spare cash, but just can't get organized and at times don't want to be bothered. May just drop it all off at the Thrift Store and be done with it. I am so up in the air with it all.
If the stuff is in good condition, consign it.
I had tried that in the past with his baby clothes and some baby toys, but she wasn't interested. Everything was new to almost new condition, clean and brought up the season they were looking for too. A lot of Disney baby clothes from the Disney Store and Disney Parks (not the cheap clothes either). I packed up the Disney clothes in Space Bags. I could not believe they would not take them. I sold most of everything else in local Yahoo groups or gave it away. If I had gotten earlier notice I could have done the Between Friends because they are coming to Lakeland soon.
