Weekend Purge

I believe in editing my life regularly of unnecessary stuff (AND people).    However, I can't seem to figure out why, when I look around my home I still have more "stuff" than I want, need or for that matter even LIKE.   So, I decided I am not taking anything into this new life I am building that I don't love, need or has significant sentimental value. 
 
This weekend  the big purge began.  Not only is this purge a great way to begin editing my life, it  will help with adding funds to my adoption account.  The items that I no longer need or want will be sold on Craig's List, E-Bay or to  friends.    So far I have lamps, chairs, kitchen items, knick-knacks, tables and even a leather and linen sofa.     Once I can get everything cleaned out and have a clean slate then I can finally look at a space that has nothing but items that I love and I can start from scratch and build a home for my family.  I can then redecorate, but on purpose this time!  This time, my life is on purpose...what a blessing and an awesome feeling that is!

So when is the sale? :) This is better then a rent party.

ohh have an auction (with reserves if you like) and sell the items to the highest bidder....what a cool way to have fun, rid your house of excess and build the adoption fund.
