More from the PANIC BUTTON genre

What’s that sound coming from my garage? Ah yes, it’s the familiar ‘low battery’ beep of my old cell phone, which SOMEHOW got swept up in the ’27 Things’ effort yesterday and now sits at the bottom of a very large trash bin, in a plastic bag with 26 other unloved items.

Wasn’t I going to donate that thing somewhere?
Well, I absolutely do NOT go through trash. It’s a policy…

Okay, hand me some gloves and my Hazmat suit. I can’t bear to hear a cell phone crying to be fed. I’m going in!
Today is as good a day as any to break with a policy.

    I love the profile pic. We are constantly fighting the battle of the clutter….especially in the rooms we are redoing…I don’t necessarily have trouble finding things to donate/get rid of…my problem is getting then to the delivery point..whether it’s the trash can or goodwill…or church🙂

    I’m afraid to get a house. Somehow, I forsee, we’ll end up having an empty bedroom with nothing but clutter in it! 🙂
