As I cleared out the office, I put aside 32 items for giving away, including 3 various CD/DVD carry cases, 24 computer games, a bag of beads, a pottery mouse, a cross stitch kit, a devotional book, and a jar.
I also created a poster to add to the board outside, of 4 items for sale - a motorbike, a wardrobe, the old computer desk, and a popcorn maker. I added another 3 books to my bag of books to sell as well.
These things would have been put outside on Friday, but it rained all day long. On Saturday morning (today as I write) it was still raining. I checked the forecast - and it shows rain for the next week. On the one hand, I'm so pleased it's raining - we've been suffering a drought for the last three months. But at the same time, I want to get rid of this stuff. So I got my husband to help me move a small, heavy "shed" from the paddock to the top of the drive, so I can put things that would otherwise be rain damaged in it, and I went ahead and put out things on Saturday - something of an experiment, as weekend there are often a lot of kids at the skate park across the road; we didn't want them taking things and being stupid with them. It went well most of the day - until a certain group of teens did just that, so from now on I'll stick to putting things out on weekdays when school is in session.
