Scrapbooking Supplies

I know the Blog Hop is over, but I have a ton of things that need good homes. As we prepare to move and pay for tuition, it’s just time to let many things find their way to those who will love and/or use them. So this post is all about Scrapbooking; and I’ll add other things as I can, and just link all the posts.

Shipping on these is priority mail, based on weight and zip code. All boxes will be mailed from the east coast. All of the scrapbooking items are new unless noted otherwise. I am not a CM consultant; I just have way too much of this stuff.

2016 Curriculum Blog Hop {Shower of Roses}

It’s time for Jessica’s annual Curriculum Blog Hop. Feel free to hop on over there to see all the other posts, after checking out all the items I have to offer this year.

This post will be rather long this year as this was my last year of homeschooling – long enough for multiple posts! It’s a bitter sweet ending to this chapter in our lives. I had intended to continue through high school, but circumstances made it so that it was better for them to attend two of the Catholic Schools in the area. So, now I just need to sell everything to put a dent in the tuition. As a single mom, this is a huge undertaking. To that end I hope you will all help me clear my shelves and be able to afford some of this tuition. Thank you!

All items will be priced and described with each photo. Prices will NOT include shipping as I want to be fair with pricing in the event multiple items are requested. Please comment with your list of books and I will email you (not shown publicly) for your zip code and to arrange a shipping price. Shipping can be priority or media mail.

Payment can be via paypal ($1 added), venmo, or personal check (shipping will be delayed until your check clears).

Clutter Free

I think I have always lived with clutter; I’ve never been accused of being a neat-freak!

Actually, I’ve always described it as an organized mess and most of the time I could still find what I was seeking. But recently my children and I were required to move into a very small space and clutter very quickly took its toll. It’s difficult to find places for things; and then equally difficult to find them again.

We are trying to find a new place to live; however, we must live in the allotted space until that new place is found. It is getting bad trying to make space for myself and two pre-teens, but Kathi Lipp has come to the rescue with her book Clutter Free and her 21 Day Challenge.

 

So I began today; and I invite you to join me on this journey. Will you? Will you take the challenge to be Clutter Free in 2015? You can start here: http://www.kathilipp.com/clutter-free-21-day-challenge

Here is some of what I’m working on…

 

Box ClutterGames & Crafts Clutter

 

The top image is of Box Clutter. Like I said, we are trying to move, so I am collecting boxes in anticipation. However, we don’t know when that’s going to happen, so the pile of boxes, bubble wrap, paper, air pockets, etc. continues to grow and take over the room.

The bottom image is that of games, craft supplies, bags of items I need when I take my Lilla Rose business to vendor events, etc. This is definitely a case of too much stuff and not enough space. It’s also a result of a bit of laziness on both me and Diva. Granted, given our current living situation, the containers lining the wall are necessary evils, but the clutter on top, around the bottom, hanging out, etc. is not necessary.

I decided to begin with the box clutter. I figured that once the boxes were sorted and organized; once the miscellany around the boxes is cleaned up, perhaps we can assign homes to some of the stuff in the other room (or at least begin to pack it in the boxes – ya know, the whole ‘kill two birds with one stone’ thing).

I was able to spend a little time on it this afternoon and it does look better. It’s not done yet, but things are more organized; and better yet? Some things are G-O-N-E!

Yep, gone. I assigned one of the boxes to be for those items I no longer want and can either sell or donate. I put some items in there, but I won’t count them until they actually leave the house. I also threw some things into the recycling bag. Those I counted and noted for later.

Wait. Why am I counting these things? Well, Kathi has challenged us to get rid of 2000 things over the course of the next year. Dare I attempt 2015 in 2015? I did this back in 2012 and was pretty successful at it. It can be challenging, but that’s what this process is all about, right?

And moving time is a perfect opportunity to start fresh. The only problem is that most of my ‘stuff’ is in storage and won’t be accessible until the move happens; but I will do my best with what I have. Too bad I didn’t count before I sent that bag off to ThredUp two weeks ago – but, wait, they will send me an itemized list, so maybe I will count that once I get that…

After one day’s work, I can sate that I eliminated (via the recycle bag) 28 items, plus a few crumpled up receipts that I didn’t count. Not bad.

Now… Who is going to join me? Who is going to take up Kathi’s challenge? Comment below and share your commitment to go Clutter Free. If you write up your own post about your participation, put your link in the comments and I’ll stop by.

C’Mon Ladies; We Can Do This!

 

* Disclaimer: If you make a purchase at Lilla Rose through my link, I will earn commission; if you sign up for ThredUp, I will earn clothing credit. As for Kathi’s book (Clutter Free), I received a free advance copy in order for my honest and willing participation (the link to amazon is an affiliate link).

 

2012 in 2012 – Back in Action

Weeks 10 through 52…

I really did intend to keep posting about this each week, but I just didn’t do it. I did keep some records of what I sold and donated; however, I kept forgetting to write down what I threw away. So I know my numbers are a little off, but that’s ok. I got a little excited as I was typing everything and I was hoping that it would all add up to 2,012. I was wrong. I didn’t make it. Does that mean I failed? Yes and No.

Yes, I failed to reach 2,012 items.

But I really don’t feel like it’s a failure. How can one fail when there are 1,523 fewer items in the house? There are more than 1500 things I don’t have to clean up; more than 1500 things I don’t have to dust; and more than 1500 things that are no longer cluttering up my home. This also means that there are over 1,000 items that have gone on to other homes through donation or sale; and may be benefiting someone else instead of sitting in a box.

So, no. I didn’t fail. I made a lot of positive changes this year. And I’m grateful I began this challenge. But I’m not finished…

I decided that I was going to follow through with this challenge into 2013. I’m not going to start over, but I am committed to making sure that I actually remove 2,012 items from my home. I have 489 more to go. I’ve got a head start with about a third of that currently on ebay!

While I intend to successfully reach 2,012, it’s really not about the number. It’s more about the freedom of living with less. I am truly grateful for this challenge and all the went with it – out the door!

Week 10: 1643 – 1154 = 489

Did anyone else do a purge in 2012? If not, how about considering one in 2013?

2012 in 2012 – Week 10

Week Ten – not too eventful *sigh* – I found it’s much too difficult to purge when you can’t walk! My foot is healing nicely, according to my surgeon, but we did have a small scare when one night this week I developed a mild fever; then it woke me up in the middle of the night with pain and extreme itching. I went back to the doctor and he thinks I was having a reaction to the betadine they use as an antiseptic. God-willing, we will be able to remove the stitches on Monday and I will be to begin walking and driving again – yay! I also need to start exercising again so I can get back to this!

For this week’s dismal results…

Donated:

  • Nothing

Thrown Away:

  • 3 Non-Disposable Razors & their Stands
  • 1 Pair of Underwear
  • 1 Adult T-shirt
  • 1 Adult Pair of Pants
  • 1 Adult Pair of Shorts
  • 1 Broken Dry Erase Board

Sold

  • 6 Fairy Figurines

I am very glad I didn’t report these sold items last week ’cause this post would be very thin! I purposely left them out last week even though they sold during that time. They hadn’t been paid for yet, and I have had experiences with some ebay sales where things never get paid for…

Week 10: 1657 – 14 = 1643

Yuck! I think I was supposed to average 41 items per week, not 14! Heal foot! Heal! We will be back to our regularly scheduled program in a week or two. Is anyone else purging? It’s not too late to get started – please consider joining me. Have a good week everyone.

2012 in 2012 – Weeks 8-9

Yikes! It’s been two weeks since my last update! But I have a really good reason: I had foot surgery last Friday. It should have been a simple surgery, but since it was on the foot, I can’t put weight on it while it heals, so I can’t walk for 2-3 weeks. The fact that it’s on my right foot means I can’t drive either. So life’s been a little complicated, yet a little boring for the last week! As a result, I’m going to be combining the last two weeks’ purges into one.

So, for both weeks, here goes:
Donated:

  • 1 Pair of Socks
  • 1 Cell Phone
  • 4 Chargers

Thrown Away:

  • 4 Re-Usable Plastic Food Containers (re-used 3 of them again in an art project with plaster of paris)
  • 12 Pairs of Socks
  • 1 More Pair of Tights (Diva is hard on her tights!)
  • 2 Pairs of Underwear
  • 3 Adult T-shirts
  • 2 Adult Pairs of Pants
  • 2 Children’s Pairs of Pants
  • 1 Broken DVD
  • 5 Almost Empty Bottles of Old Cleaners
  • 1 Dish Washer Detergent Dispenser
  • 1 Tattered Shelf Liner
  • 1 Broken Glass
  • 4 Old Sponges
  • 3 Cracked/Broken Plates
  • 2 Expired Food Packets
  • 1 Broken Game
  • 2 Dried Out Bottles of Glitter Glue
  • 3 Broken Tokens
  • 1 Stack of Used Bulletin Board Letters

Sold:

  • 2 Hoppy VanderHare Rabbits
  • 1 Thomas Waterfall Building
  • 4 Pieces of Switch Track
  • 2 Pieces of Wacky Track
  • 2 Pieces of Criss-Cross Track

As you can see, I did get some items listed on ebay before the surgery. I am thankful that I am able to print postage from the computer, and the postal carrier will just pick them up at the regular mail delivery time. My kids really helped me to get things packed up and out to the mail box. Thanks Diva and LegoFan! I did sell six other items, but they won’t go out until Monday, so I will wait and include them in next week’s totals I am hoping to get cleared to do a little more walking so I can get more items listed in the next week or two.

Totals:

  • Donated: 6 Items
  • Thrown Away: 51 Items
  • Sold: 11 Items

Weeks 8-9: 1725 – 68 = 1657

Not too shabby for someone who has been cut open and laid up for a week!

With 43 weeks left in the year, I now must average 39 items per week. But I’m not sure how well I’m going to do this week while I’m still living on the couch – we’ll see!
