One of my goals in 2010 was to work on Mindfully Purchasing while I thrift. Too often, far too often, it is easy for me to say "Well, I can just put it in the booth if I decide I don't loooooooove it. And now I am trying to decide whether or not I loooooooooove it while I am shopping.
For Instance...this weekend, I went through all of the children's books. We have a lot. And there were a whole lot that made their way to Memory Lane on Saturday:
And this is only a section of them. I know...I know. I have a hard time saying no to books and we have been collecting them intently for about 12 years now.
So when I stopped by Goodwill yesterday and started browsing the book aisle, I was proud of myself for only picking up 5 books! And then...wait for it...I put 4 of them back! After I had the books in my hand, I realized that I truly only needed one of them. Or wanted one of them, let's be real about this.
One last thing before I head off to tackle some projects today...My Valentine Wreath sold at Memory Lane!
Goodbye, my dear shiny brites! I hope you love your new home!
