166 items off to the church consignment sale. It was a bit sad to part with some of these things, but what am I going to do with it? No more babies for us so there's no need to keep it. I kept special items, although I really have no idea why I'm keeping every Christmas and Easter dress of Hannah's.
Last night (the 1st night of drop-off) there were TONS and TONS of items already. What a consumer driven world we live in!! I get to pre-sale shop on Wed night. Why buy new when there is prefectly good pre-owned clothing for a fraction of the price?
All this made me think of an article I recently read about what ends up in our landfills. By the way, today I called for a second recycling bin.

I've saved a few of my kids special things too. I even have a special dress of my own from when I was young. I remember my mother was going to give it away and I was so sad about it, that she let me keep it. I was about 8 years old, I think.
