Starting #15 on the New 101 in 1001

On my 4th 101 tasks to accomplish in 1001 days, number 15 states:  Get rid of 101 items.

I need a place to donate these pink flowered balloon shades.

Since there’s no time like the present to get started here are the first 10.

  1.  Old leg brace

    Even with a sore knee this isn’t a good option anymore.
  2. Old-fashioned screen door

    The old-fashioned screen door on the Cottage has been replaced.
  3. Wire hangers

    I’m only counting the wire hangers as one item.
  4. Old can of tile grout

    This old bucket of grout dates before 2012 — time to spring for a new one.
  5. and 6.  Two suitcases
    After getting rid of these 2 we still have more than enough suitcases.

    7, 8, and 9.  Outdated vitamins and medicine

    I probably have more outdated bottles to toss.

    10.  Old Fax machine

    We haven’t used the fax machine for years.

    Ten down, 91 to go.

What can you toss this weekend?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
