Is it really a week?

I can’t believe it’s been over a week since I’ve posted! Time flies when you’re having fun :-).

Actually I was getting ready for our regional support group’s annual used book and curriculum sale. I am getting rid of so many books. I emptied two large bookcases in the family room and will be giving those to a friend. I just don’t have room for any more books and I don’t want to make room for any more. Even though I would love to rescue books from the fate of the dumpster, I just don’t have the time or room. I’m sure if I see something really great, I’ll pick it up but I’m not actively book hunting like I was a few years ago. How things change!

I did sell almost all the Landmarks that I picked up at the other book sale a few weeks ago. A half-hour before closing this afternoon, I marked most of my items half price. That cleared away some of my stuff. I sold over $300 worth of books and some curriculum. A big seller was all the Feature Films for Families that I had and the Illustrated Classics ($1 each!). I had two empty crates when I was done. Yeah!

Next week I’ll start getting everything ready to go to the used curriculum sale at the convention. This sale requires more work because you have to use specific labels and categorize everything. The last two sales I just had to put a price sticker on everything.

De-cluttering is so freeing! I’m so happy to see these things go, go, go away!!!
