First Weekend of Lent, 2017

I am diligently working on the 40 bags project. So far we have removed 8 bags (only 4 days). I have 4 more items to remove, if I can find a way to get rid of 2 of the bigger items (a trampoline, a see-saw and a treadmill), it would be good. Why am I getting rid of the trampoline? We have kids in neighborhood that don't respect owners rights and I cannot have it up without fear that someone's kid(s) will come into my yard and start jumping and get hurt and/or die from misuse. I have a see-saw that we bought for our girls and they have outgrown. I have a treadmill that I haven't used in 10 years because every time I used it there were complaints from my family about the noise created from my walking on it. I was able to get a exercise bike and I have been using that and so I need to remove the treadmill, so we have room.

I told my husband don't bother with taking things to the St. Vincent de Paul since they are not welcome to accepting things, like they used to, but he learned that they want everything cleaned to within an inch of it's life before they accept it. I will call the Vet's and see if they will help us with these items and see what happens. Maybe they will take them, maybe not, all I can do is ask. Failing that I guess I will do my hated thing and have a yard sale.

Are you doing the 40 bags challenge? How is it going for you?
