the executive desk

This is where the Hubs would take meetings with clients. :)
Actually it housed all the millions of electronics (most of those are gone too)
We sold it today!! Wanna guess how much this bad boy weighed?

100 lbs?






218 lbs!?

Yes! How did you know?

The Hubs got rid of this thing from his studio.

I don't even know what it was, but it weighed 26.4 lbs.

goodbye wedding

Almost 4 years ago, I made the linens and table runners for our wedding. And then after the wedding, I folded them up and put them into a box.
Where they sat for almost three years.
For my birthday party I took three of the linens and table runners and used them.
I don't like getting rid of wedding stuff, because I remember how much hard work went into the planning and preparation. But I can still remember these things without actually having them in my life, right?
It's time. 10.8 lbs of fabric going to goodwill.
Plus, I need that box!

on magazines

Everyday I'm purging more and more magazines. Removed another 15 today. You don't realize how much magazines can add to your overall weight. Going through them now, I wonder, why did I keep these? 5 years down the line, these fashion / interior / craft trends are no longer valid. They aren't topical forever.

I have such a love / hate relationship with purging. I am enjoying the visualization of clean shelves and streamlined interiors in my future. But there are some things that I have a hard time letting go of. Especially if I am not sure if the thing I'm trying to get rid of is going to come back to haunt me.

We have people looking at our couches, so those will be gone soon. We got rid of another computer (Another one!?! Yes, another one)

33.2 lbs today

I'll miss my Sponge Bob Square Pants tapes

Got rid of an additional 17.8 lbs of VHS tapes. We'll be getting rid of the VCR as well. Ah

It must seem like we have a lot of crap. Well, yes, we do. But we've lived in the same (very large) apartment for 8 years now. Something I do not recommend doing. Move every two or three years, that is the key to keeping the load very light. Filling up a three bedroom apartment is very easy.

Getting rid of the stuff. Now that's the tricky part.

480 lbs

I didn't know I had so many magazines

Isn't it amazing how much stuff weighs? I just got rid of 16 lbs of magazines at this very moment. At one point in my life I felt they were worth keeping, but it only took about 5 minutes to get rid of them.

Not to mention the additional 35 lbs that was another computer monitor we got rid of. 35 lbs! That's almost a third of my weight.

The apartment has been found. We will be moving in at the beginning of the month. Commence complete removal of crap! Now, I need to figure out how to weigh our couch.
