7 bags gone. Six of clothes, one of cosmetics I've kept for a year meaning to use it and have realised I never will.

I have another four bags of stuff to go, plus a highchair that my in laws are going to use, plus a big toybox of baby toys to sell.

Total: 51 bags.

Another 2.5 bags gone, so that's 20 bags in total, I've reached my goal! This excludes the cot and basinnet that have already gone. Plus I have another 2 bags waiting to go.

Anyone know a good way to donate breakables like wine glasses, platters and crockery etc without breakage in transport? (Or anyone here want any of those things?). I need to get rid of breastpads too....

Another six bags gone. Total: 64 bags.

We moved our house layout around recently and our office has absorbed some stuff. Once the office has been organised I'm pretty close to being as finished as I can be.

Hoping that by this time next year, I can turf the cot, cot sheets and changing table.

Eight bags, mostly fabric and old clothes that were destined to be a sewing project in one way or another. All gone in the boot of the car, waiting for the oppie to be ready to take more donations. And I think I am now almost completely polyester free :)

The equivalent of maybe 5 bags' worth of clothes and toys to the op-shop - 64 bags total.

Oh! And another 3 bags' worth of assorted items a month or so ago - forgot to add those. So 67 bags is the running total with a day to go. :lol:
