Back at the beginning of December I wrote about my plan to use our advent calendars to encourage us to clear out some of the things we wouldn’t need once our trips began. With each item added to the pile, my resolve that we no longer needed this stuff began to grow. I felt a buzz as I added yet another unused object to the collection and couldn’t wait to get to the next day so that I could search out something new to clear out. At the end of the month I sorted the bits and pieces into those to be thrown out (a big black bag) and those to be boot saled (three large carrier bags). An excellent antidote to our typical excesses of Christmas!
