project get rid of 365

so i realize that i forgot to post the last two weeks worth of get rid of.
so i will post both weeks in this post.
as you will see i cleaned out my bathroom cabinets and alot of the items came from there.
item number one is an old makeup bag from clinique

item number two is a foundation that i bought because i liked the sample but when i bought the full size i did not care for it so it is going to my mom

item number three is an empty bottle of nail polish that i had been holding on to in hopes of finding the same color again

item number four is an eye shadow from avon that i have never used in the last 10 years

item number five is also a avon eye shadow that i don't care for but held on to because i have the matching nail polish and lipstick

item number six are calm drops which i like but these have gotten old and taste funny

item number seven is the same but with moon drops

item number eight is a sample of burts bees face scrub that i never use

item number nine is a foot thing also from avon that i have no use for

item number ten is a lip serum that my mom gave me that i tried last night and this morning they were all chapped and nasty so bye, bye it goes

item number 11 is
a large pink ornament that i forgot to take a picture of

and item number 12 lastly is (was) a broken toy of my sons that i gave up on trying to fix, sadly he tossed it before a got a chance to snap a pic.
so the next 7 items will be posted on sunday. hope everyone had a great christmas.

week 3 of 357 items

so another 7 items are leaving (or have left) my home.
without further ado here are the items that got chopped this week.
item #1 is a pot of bliss youth as we know it eye cream. i love every other product in the youth as we know it line except for this eye cream. it caused me to get little bumps in the areas i applied it to. so it is going to my mom who loves it dearly.
item #2 is a book of internet sites that came with a laptop that i purchased around 11 years ago.
as you can guess many of the sites no longer exist today. so when i came across it i figured it was time for it to go. sorry i forgot to rotate it.
next item up is a clip thingy (yes that is a technical term). it was unclaimed by all three children.
each of them denied ownership so off it went.

item #4 is a strand of lights that was on a little tree that goes on my bathroom counter.
now, the lights have been on the tree for around four years, but i only lit them the first
two. i got tired of having to unscrew the back and put the lights in and then unscrew the back again after xmas to take the lights off. so this year i thought why am i even leaving them on there; and promptly took them off.

item #5 is another book. i have read it twice. so in all fairness it is time for it to migrate elsewhere.
it was a good book. i read it a few years ago and apparently held on to it. when i came across it the other day i couldn't remember exactly what happened so i read it again. it too will be migrating to my mothers.

item #6 is also a book. this one i have only read once. it was very quirky with a few unexpected twists.
it was good but odd. adios book set in wales.

and finally, alas, item #7 i did not document. it was two light strands that haven't worked in quite awhile that i had been using the bulbs off of. i said good bye to the pair of them.
and that rounds up week 3 of this project. don't have a clue yet what will go in 
the coming week. check back next sunday to find out.

sunday post 357 items

it is sunday once again and i have my items tossed/given away list for the past week.
item number 1 is a star that is no longer working, tried changing fuses and bulbs and it is still not working. have had this star in our christmas collection for at least the past 11 years.
items #2 and 3 are a star and an xmas tree that have suction cups on them. you adhere a 9 volt battery to them and they light up and you can stick it on the window of your car. have not used them for several years so i have let them go.
item #4 is a avon magazine that has been living in my closet for several weeks,
so in the recycling it goes.
item #5 is a necklace that i have had since high school. i am going to see if my daughter wants it if not it will go in the items to donate bag. you will have to forgive the photo, for some reason the camera wouldn't focus on it. i took at least five pictures of it and sad to say this is the best one.
items #6 and 7 are actually a box with old ornaments from my daughters trees when they were younger. this isn't even all of them so i figured they could count as two.
don't know what i will be getting rid of in the coming week but i will post again next sunday to let you know what i said good-bye to.
