In June I went through my magazine rack and weeded out many of the old, unread magazines stored there. I kept many of them because I wanted to read them and was sure I would get to them. Of course, I was forgetting why they ended up there in the first place. I barely have time to keep up with the new magazines coming to my house, much less the old ones already here.
Since I haven't touched the magazine rack since June, I figured I should just get rid of all the magazines in it and start fresh.
It kind of hurt to put them in the recycling bin.
I'm recycling 28 of them. I think it's a good thing. When I took them out of the rack, dust billowed out along with them.
I also went through a couple of my kitchen cabinets, as part of my upcoming clear-out-everything-in-the-kitchen-that-I-don't-regularly-use project. I was able to find 12 things I don't use and put them in my donation to the National Children's Center that was already on my porch waiting to be picked up.
