Yes, I declared on my latest Odds & Ends post that we have begun a massive decluttering project. And yes, it really is true. I impressed myself by purging forty items (I counted them!) in a scant thirty minutes or so on Saturday afternoon! (Only two of which, by the way, were books.)
The girls and I also went to the library on Saturday afternoon. 🙂 I just happened to spot on the sale rack a L.M. Montgomery title that I didn’t own.
I even limited the number of books the girls could check out (and held my ground with them!) so that we brought home a mere thirty-four books as opposed to our usual sixty-four or eighty-four.
We were doing well and on our way out the door when I noticed the “clearance rack” outside the library door, just inside the foyer. It was there that my resistance crumbled.
Six books for the Newbery shelf? Sixty cents? Well, only because I’m hosting the Newbery Through the Decades Challenge. . . 😉
$1.90 for all of them. Less than $2.00. What riches! How could I say no? 🙂
If this is true, we’re in
good great superb shape.
The decluttering mission, however, has just had a setback.
