Toss Of The Week!

Here’s the first photo I received for the Toss Of The Week!

There! It’s done! Another empty drawer…

Thanks Dad! That’s five cell phones. Nicely done! I should add that he took them to London Drugs for recycling.

My Toss Of The Week is considerably lower tech:

Actually Squirrel tossed this into the green space across the street while I clung to it whining. But I liiiike this stick.

In a rare role reversal, Squirrel questioned our need for this piece of not quite driftwood that I bleached to give the appearance of the real thing.

Squirrel ignored my pitch to keep it in the backyard declaring it a dangerous weapon in the hands of our boys.

It made a nice photo though.

Keep your photos coming! It just takes a second and you’ll feel better knowing you encouraged someone else to unburden.

If you’re shy about your disposables send a shot of something your significant other or your roommate tossed or your neighbour left out with a FREE sign on it. I’m not picky.

And if you need a good reason not to do any unnecessary shopping, check out the post “Frugal Consumer” is an Oxymoron on The Eco Cat Lady Speaks blog.


Toss Of The Week!

We’re in Osoyoos for the long weekend, staying with my in-laws.  I have to admit I’m kind of missing my decluttering project.

As for blogging – Squirrel doesn’t take too kindly to long laptop sessions by the pool while he’s launching our sons off his shoulders for the thousandth time.

“I need a break!”

Is someone calling me?

Still, I wanted to get started on a weekly post called Toss Of The Week!  This is where I’ll need your participation.

Every week, I’ll post a picture of the thing I am most grateful to be rid of. And you can e-mail me pictures of the things you are most grateful to be rid of.  You can send them to me at

If you’ve read any of my posts so far, you’ll notice that the most annoying clutter in my house tends to be kid’s toys and Squirrel’s bits and pieces.

But I am not an innocent bystander.  Oh no, I have a few things that I would be very hard pressed to describe the value of.

So send me your broken, your useless, your outgrown, your unwanted, or your just plain weird –

Because misery and resolutions love company.
