Yesterday was a busy work and housekeeping day. So when Emme’s afternoon nap rolled around, my Preptember motivation was half passed nil.
But I made myself go upstairs and get to work. I cleaned Dan’s bachelor era microwave and lugged it downstairs. Today, he delivered it to a friend of ours needing a nuker.
Then, I tackled a massive Sterlite of clothes I’d been saving for awhile. These were clothes that I wanted to keep. After going through them, I have no freakin’ idea what I’d been thinking. A burgundy velour tank with lace trim? Pale pink cords? Why did the salespeople let me buy these things!?!
When I saw a $158.00 tag on a maroon velour blazer I’d never worn, I just about flatlined…. until I saw the reverse side with the $29.99 price tag. While there’s no excuse for buying something that says “Let me sell you a house!” I do feel slightly better that I hadn’t totally jumped the shark.
From this bin, I filled 3 large shopping bags for Goodwill. I figure I should donate them soon, because I know people will be looking for clothing just like this.
After all, Halloween is coming up.
