I’ve Been Busy

An Interview

This morning I was interviewed by Mohamed over at Midway Simplicity. I’ll let you know when the interview is up. Thanks Mohamed!

The Master Bedroom

I’m still working on that stuff in the bedroom. Still. But, I am making progress, so there’s that. I hung up two of the pictures that were leaned up against the wall. Just two. But, that’s two more than I started with, so you know. There you go.


I also found a local page on Facebook that functions as an online yard sale. Which. I. Love. I listed two necklaces I don’t wear. One sold that afternoon. This is the one I sold:

It was really pretty, but I never wore it. So, off it went. Still waiting to see if anyone bites on the other one. And, I’m going to try to use it for some of the other more valuable stuff I’m getting rid of. I’m crossing my fingers.

Just Say No

My mom, the Girl and I went to a cooking class at Williams Sonoma Sunday morning. My mom wanted to go because they were supposed to demonstrate this new fryer that uses only 1 tablespoon of oil, but the food is supposed to taste like it was fried in a deep fryer. I think they call it an air fryer. Anyway, they ended up not being able to demo it because the store sold out. And, you know how it goes with discounts and accumulation, they were offering 10% off anything you bought the day you attended the cooking class. My mom bought one of the fryers. I was tempted, but then I sat myself down and had a come to Jesus conversation that went something like this:

Buying Me: Wow, that’s really cool. And it’s healthier. I could make french fries. And chicken nuggets for the kids. And homemade potato chips.

Decluttering Me: It is cool, but no.

Buying Me: *totally ignoring Decluttering Me* I’d rather have the black one because it would match the coffee maker and the blender. Plus, I’d save $30 if I bought it today.

Decluttering Me: Seriously? Snap out of it. It will sit unused after a couple of times. Plus, you can do all of that in the oven with a cookie sheet. LIKE YOU DO NOW.

Buying Me: Yeah, I suppose you’re right.

I didn’t buy it.

I hope you all are having decluttering successes! What are they? I’d love to hear about them!
