Got rid of shedloads this weekend. Not all of it was photographed and so not all of it will count toward my goals of throwing out 35 things.
First off, my partner and I went through all the junk that had accumulated on our back patio. We threw out bags of gardening waste (does not count toward my 35) and several pots, plant holders and small gardening tools (which do count). We put them out by the bins at the end of the street. They were swiftly snaffled by eager local gardeners… or whatever.
Second, two old laptop bags. One that I got in 2001 or 2002 and on which about 82% of the zips had busted and the other which got issued to my partner when he got a work laptop but which no longer fits his laptop since it got replaced. Binned.
A boxful of gardening supplies. Binned.
All kinds of random crap from the back patio. A BBQ, a Xmas tree, a tarp, etc. We had to call the city waste collection and they will pick it up on Wednesday.
We are also making plans to get rid of some other, bigger ticket items. My bike, for example, needs a bit of work and then will go on the local internet marketplace. Also, our pet bunny. Hopefully we can find her a home where they already have a bunny so she can haver a little friend.
It feels good to clear these things out. certainly I find it visually relaxing not to look at a big pile of junk. mentally, it also feels like we are starting to get somewhere and make some real plans for the future.
On the other hand, I will miss the bunny. Anti-social, furniture destroying, allergy inducing bastard that she is, I will still miss her.
