Cleaning out my closets!

It feels so good to de-stash!

Last week when I was cleaning for FIL's visit I was putting away shoes in my closet to discover I STILL have 7 Coach bags (plus matching wallets, makeup bags etc) on one of the shelves. I've had these bags for years (the newest piece is from 1999) & I don't use them anymore. I've been talking about putting them on Ebay for a while & just haven't gotten around to it.

Well last night I did---3 bags plus their accessories went up (I'm keeping my large tote, my Abbie zip for Betsy, my small black plaid bag & right now a med. tan bag but it'll probably be up for auction by the end of the day). Woke up this morning to discover I sold my red tote & it's goodies! YAY! It's boxed up & ready to ship out tomorrow.

Did the same thing with some yarn a couple wks ago & last week as well. I bought a ton of Noro Kureyon last fall & winter & while I love the colors I HATE how it felts. So now they are en route to their new owners. I also brought 30 skeins to one of the nursing homes in town for their residents to use. My stash is down to 228 skeins but I'll probably destash again in a few weeks. I have some bamboo & rosewood needles to put on Ebay---maybe I'll get to it later today.

Wow that sounds great. I should give it a try! Let me know when those needles go up!
