Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
The convenors of of the church variety sale have announced the dates when they are prepared to receive donations, and it is clear that this fund-raiser is a Very Big Deal in the parish. They collect all manner of stuff, but it has to be Good Stuff -- that is, items that people might actually pay serious money for. Not tat.

Well. I'm not sure that everything I would like to unload on them qualifies as Good Stuff, but it all survived the cut last year before the Grand Derangement from Ottawa to Stratford, so I guess I did not think any of it was true tat.

Collection begins next week. I hope to clear the basement of china bits (mostly English bone china), two or three sets of glassware, at least half of our abundance of beer mugs, and rather a lot of framed art. A book purge would be a good idea, too, especially of music and Canadian history.

I have some boxes, a stack of newspapers, and about two bin-bags of bubble-wrap. Let the games begin!
