We’re quietly at home this Black Friday morning, enjoying the long holiday weekend. I will probably venture to Meijer for a few things this weekend, but that will be about it. (I am updating a list of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals all weekend in the forum if you want to see what I’ve found.)
I had one goal this week. I was supposed to continue weeding out my recipes which will be an ongoing job for a few weeks. I didn’t make any progress on it leading up to Thanksgiving. I do plan on spending a little time on it this weekend. We’re getting a box of donations ready to take to Goodwill so I’ll allocate ten or fifteen minutes to going through the collection. I will also take a quick glance at my cookbooks and see if there are any I wish to donate.
One thing about clearing things out. We put up our Christmas decorations yesterday and it was the quickest we’ve ever done it. The reason? I went through our Christmas bins either this summer or last. I donated quite a few things. We still have plenty of decorations, but I got rid of a lot of things I knew we would never use. It makes it so much easier. Even with that, I noticed there were still a few things that could be added to the next donation box. But it’s nice to reap the rewards of the work.
How did you do on your goal this week? We’re all about progress (not perfection) around here so feel free to share whatever you did get done in a comment. You might encourage or inspire someone else!
