My minimal hoarding life should be just my hoarding life because of stockpiling.
Yes I have stockpiled a few items this past week and one of those items was home canning jars, And I filled most of those jars with food for the winter, Yes I said Winter and its only June 6th.! But this is when some of the vegetables and fruits are producing and I can get them for free.
I did buy and clip coupons this week, I shouldn`t have but I did, I bought my favorite shampoo and conditioner at only one third of the normal price. What makes this a bad deal is that I have around one hundred and eighty bottles of shampoos and conditioners already in the stockpile, But not one bottle of what I bought today.
I added to the wardrobe this week, another pair of shorts and another summer shirt plus two new bras, I have not chosen what will be going because I bought new, I will say it wont be hard to pick a few items because my clothes are worn.
Tony got three new outfits and new underwear but he wears his clothes out so fast there is no need to worry about tossing anything from his closet.
Now what have I taken out of the house?
One shirt to my sister and I sold another pair of shorts on eBay. The eBay tub is getting close to the bottom so I most certainly will be refilling it with my size 2x clothes that are to big for me now.
I have kept up the “taking out” of recycling items, actually I have been dropping those off a couple times a week to the donation bin except for the tin cans and the aluminum that I do collect money for.
I am keeping up the laundry and I have been hanging it out on the clothesline, minus one time that it was raining, for the fresh sun smell and to save money and not heating up the house.
As far as house keeping I do , always, keep things picked up and the house neat. However, I have not dusted, vacuumed or mopped any last week.
I filed all the paperwork and the dining room table is clean.
I cleaned up the big deep freezer and I am thinking about cleaning out the small deep freezer and putting what is in it into the big one now that there is room. Maybe save a few dollars in power per month.
I plan for this week to clean up and to mow the lawn. Take off a truck full of no longer needed outside junk and maybe sell a deep freezer ( I have another that is not used and in the shed). I may see if I can talk Tony into getting rid of the BIG riding mower that is broken down, or send it out to be fixed, as it is now its junk in the way.
That is a week in review of My Minimal Hoarding Life, how was your week past?
