One down....

... and ??? to go!  I had my first "Downsizing So That I Will Have  Only What I Need When I Go Fulltiming" yard sale today!  Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!  And I am SOOOOOOOOOO  tiward, as my Little One used to say!  The bed is already calling my name and it isn't even 8 o'clock yet!  Been a long time since 5 am though, so I doubt I will resist much longer!

I know it is a teeny-tiny-baby step, but all day long, each time something left my yard, I couldn't wipe the big ole smile off my face....  "Baby steps first, baby steps first" (to quote Bob in "What About Bob?")  If you haven't seen it and you like Bill Murray at his funniest, watch it.  Love it!

Anywaaaay....  I'm excited and hoping this is the first in a long line of steps toward freedom!!!! 

And now I'm going to bed.  :-)

Way to go Kerri! I'm so excited for you!

I completely understand how tired you are though- sales are exhausting! Hope you had a great turn out and got rid of lots of stuff! The more you can rid yourself of now, the less you need to pack and store later.

Slow and steady...

We'll be in your neck of the woods for a field trip on the 22nd. Wanna go? I'll forward you the info.

I remember how exciting it was to get rid of "stuff" for my new life! The first tastes of freedom are sure sweet! Congratulations!

Those sales sure are a lot of work, but it feels good to be rid of the stuff. :)

Heidi and I had a garage sale to get rid of stuff that we had accumulated while visiting family out in Washington as well as some of our overlapping stuff from when we got together. That feeling of freedom when it goes away down the road is worth so much more than the few bucks we received during the sale! Very excited to read about your making progress! Freedom isn't far off :)

Thanks everyone - I know you all "know"...

4 trips to the thrift store donation box and I'm still going! Every load is like a little weight being lifted - WHY do we accumulate all this stuff???? Never again!
