Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
There is a shoe drive going on this month on campus and a collection box is in my building. It seems to be working, the box filled and emptied a couple of times. I've added two nice pairs of BØRN leather clogs that I just never get around to wearing. There are probably others I could add, I'll check out my dressing room shoe rack this weekend. (The clogs resided on a shoe rack under the bench in the sun room, where I in theory sit to change shoes when I come in; for a number of weeks that bench has been stacked with prepared eBay parcels - once they sell they're taped shut and handed to the postal carrier.)

Good luck with the cookbook distribution. I have several I regularly use and I have a bunch that are novelty items because my Mom collected cookbooks. We'll have company over and someone will pick up one of those to thumb through, resulting in an interesting discussion about whatever oddball thing that cookbook was for. There are quite a few from Norwegian farmers and the WWII years, and lots of things handed out by companies in the grocery store or offered for a nominal fee if you mailed in box tops.

I just mowed the back yard, a very large lawn, but the fitness tracker doesn't show many of the steps because my hands are stationary on the mower handle. It needs the swinging arms of free walking to show steps - so perhaps I should fasten it around my ankle when I mow, those steps might show up! :)
