confession # 5 - is it trash because it's in the garbage or because it belongs in the garbage?

Seriously. I have art that dates back to junior high. Why can't i just trash this stuff?

Okay. Now, it's your turn. What are you holding on to?

virtually every card, note, or letter my husband has ever given to me. Even the silly ones from high school!

I just put a box in Kurt's office that that holds contents very similar to those in your picture. I think I've asked him to do something with it everytime we've moved. Maybe I should set it on fire ;)...I like fire. I sound like a freak leaving a comment like this on your blog.

boxes of greeting cards from people....birthday's, anniversaries, Christmas, etc.

I also have my artwork from college.

I'm actually trying to respond to the comment you left on my blog, BUT I admit that I have just recently thrown out CLOTHES I was still wearing from junior high! I know, I probably win the NERD award, but I promise I have good taste in clothing now!!

Anyway, Jenna, I have had great success with the grocery game! I can't name everything, by any means, BUT I've bought, Crest, toothbrushes, Pantene, Suave body wash, soap, Tide, Downy, TONS of Lysol products, gum, crackers, cereal, cereal bars, diapers, juice, and on and on... You just have to be careful to cross things off the list before you get to the store if you don't need them! I do get a lot of the FREE and super cheap stuff for donations. The whole idea is that you are buying what you need for the next 12 weeks until it goes back on sale. So, if you don't buy in bulk (only what you need for that time period), then you aren't really reaping the benefits! I am having a BLAST. I LOVE getting FREE stuff every week. Email me at if you have any other questions!
