Got Rid of Some Stuff Today

I know it's been a while since I posted here.  I guess I didn't have any getting rid of stuff stories.
Today, I got rid of a pair of loafers, a pair of sneakers, three pairs of slippers, two purses, and a belt that were all either broken or worn out. I contributed them to the recycle pile at the thrift store where I volunteer. It'll all be sent up to a center in Kansas City that pays us for the stuff.

I'll probably find more stuff to get rid of as I go along.

Getting Rid of Two Shirts Today

I noticed the other day that a t-shirt I've had since shortly before I had started college was wearing out at the neckline. Yesterday, I noticed that another one was wearing out near the shoulder. As I have a pretty extensive wardrobe without holding onto these, I will be taking them to the thrift store where I volunteer for them to be recycled.

As a rule, clothing that is in bad shape, out of season, or otherwise can't be sold, is sent put in a bag for recycling. It used to be the local recycling center that would pick up our recycling. However, we got an offer from a recycling center in Kansas City where we would get paid for what they picked up from us. Thus, according to our manager, we can afford to be a little more selective about what gets put up for sale. I used to simply throw away worn out clothing, but since our store would be getting money for it regardless, I might as well donate to the recycling pile. (And I'm not the only one who has done that, either.)

Finished A Sudoku Book

Today, I filled what I had left of some puzzles in an orange Sudoku book. I'm at my sister's house for at least this week for reasons I can't go into, and it'll be one last thing for me to take back home.

Finshed A Sudoku Book

I managed to go through all the pages of a book of sudoku puzzles that I have. I messed up on some of the puzzles, including the last one, but I managed to complete most of them correctly.

I might work on another sudoku book tomorrow if I end up staying in all day.

Getting Rid Of A Pair Of Jeans

A pair of dark blue jeans that my sister had given me this summer (presumably ones she was unable to wear herself) have developed holes in the butt and in the inseam. Mind you, these are small holes and while the former one could be patched up, I'm sure, I'm afraid it'd be a bit too awkward for the latter one.

So as of today, I'm getting rid of said jeans. That leaves me down to one or two other pairs, a pair of overalls, multiple pairs of slacks, and several skirts.

Got Rid Of A Pen That Wasn't Working Anymore

I know my posts here have been "hit and miss" at best. Unfortunately, there's not a lot I have that has been fully used up lately. (I do have some lotion that I have been using that seems to be coming close to running out, though.)
Anyway, I had a pen sitting around my room for a while. There were times when I would try to use it, and I couldn't because it didn't have any ink. So, I've thrown it away. But that's okay. I can find other things to write with.

Used Up Another Perfume

Sometime yesterday, I used up a perfume that I had for quite some time called "Incognito." It was perfume number 2 out of a three pack of ones that came in small bottles.

The next one I will be trying to use up is called "Heaven Scent".
