Yesterday I left a HUGE box of barbies at a yard sale. Said huge box was marked $10. When I mentioned it to Dave he said 1) hang up and go back and get it right now and 2) you have no mojo because you are overthinking it this year.
And yea, I am a little.
The more kids we have, the more chaos we have in the house for starters. And I have a lot less time to take care of anything but kids. (Which is okay really. I choose kids over stuff obviously.)
But I decided to stop overthinking it so much so I could at least enjoy the season before we have little person number three.
(And I did go back for the barbies. There were 14 barbies, 4 kens, 20 kelly dolls, 6 infants, half a pillow case full of clothes, tons of shoes, accessories, etc. So yea, for $10 I was being stupid.)
So I set out this morning with my "let it go philosophy." Apparently it helped my mojo and I might just be gaining junking steam again!
A really faded cutter quilt.
But when it's asking price is $3 no way in Hades am I going to leave it there.
A HUGE roll of old carnival tickets.
Christmas crap! At last! Man it's been a long time.
A huge bag full of...
eyeballs I think? I think these will be fun for Halloween. Maybe sew a bunch together to make garlands? Halloween ornaments?
A cutter baby quilt. I will never cut this one up, but the condition is rough. That's okay, it just means Sam can use it and abuse it some more.
A pillow case.
A doll quilt. Not the prettiest one ever, but the girl with all the linens REALLY wanted me to have it when she heard Sammi has a wall of doll quilts.
A bazillion different styles of craft scissors. (Kraft edgers to be exact.) This is something I would have passed up because it was $12. But, the kids and I will have fun with them. So why not?
A sweet crib sheet. I might turn it into pillow cases for Sammi. Or a curtain for her room.
And last, but never least (and not at all like the crazy, insane, massive, wonderful hoard Barbara just got), a feedsack.
I didn't even bother taking pics of the pile of gymboree/gap stuff I bought for Sam or the brand spanking new Hanna Anderson baby cardigan I bought for $3.
All in all, a nice morning.
Now my house is a giant wreck of quilts that need to be washed and piles of barbies.
And it's awesome.
