Happy Monday, everyone!
I did not reorganize my stockpile as I mentioned last week. Instead, I finished weeding out clothing. I tackled my dresser drawers and the shoe graveyard under my bed. I have 4 dresser drawers and cannot believe the amount of things I had in there that I did not need anymore. Old raggedy pjs that I don't wear anymore, socks I don't like, purses I will never use again and bras that do not fit.
Why did I keep bras that were too small?? Ummm because I might fit back into them someday? I don't even know. But I loaded up a kitchen trash back of clothes, purses and shoes to be donated. And a small plastic grocery bag of stuff went to the dumpster. I will not donate old socks, even if they are not raggedy. They are not pristine and white, so they were not donate worthy. I never liked the style...they were not comfortable...but just never threw them away. That was just silly.
I also had a bunch of pairs of gloves...new ones. My mom would send me a pair or two every winter and they just don't wear out. So I had quite a few pairs.
I referred to the shoe graveyard under my bed. That is where shoes that I don't like, but were in too good a shape to throw away lived. One pair I wore once. They were not comfortable, so I left them under the bed. Silly me. They, and a couple other pairs, are being donated. Now all that is under the bed is jam. LOL!
I ran to Walgreens and Kroger on Saturday. I stocked up a bunch of things from Walgreens to sent in care packages to Chance. I did one order of the stuff that would get RRs, then did a second order that had no RR items and used the RRs to pay. That way I don't have to worry about getting back there within 2 weeks. I spent $27, but saved $70. I know I could have spent less, but Chance doesn't ask for much, so I willingly spend a little extra for things he does really like.
My Kroger bill would have been pretty low, but Hubby had asked me to buy some ground beef, since we were out. (No good sales in a while.) I did not even KNOW it was on sale for $1.57/lb. Not cheap, but cheaper than it has been in a while. So, I bought 15 lbs. I may go by today or tomorrow and get a little more. I have not decided. I really miss $.99/lb ground beef.
I took my girlfriend to see Black Swan, and I loved it as much the second time as I did the first time. Then we went to eat a late lunch at Chilis. It was yummy.
The rest of the weekend was nice and relaxing. I love those kinds of weekends.
