You are probably getting sick of these updates now… But I need them to keep me accountable. I commented on my last update that I was getting behind because of a busy weekend, and so I need this push to catch up and keep going…
Day 19: More Electronics
I managed to find an old shoe box full of old electronics. Some of the items were memory cards and USB sticks that I’ll have to check for files that need saving, but most of the stuff was no longer needed. I got rid of an old digital camera with charger, some old telephone cables, my old diskman and headphones (that were falling apart and leaving a mess everywhere), a Tom Cochrane CD, a couple calculators, a piece for my old home phone that has long left the house, a few manuals, some promotional gadgets from when I was a student, an old iPhone charging cable (I have a new iPhone now), one of my old cell phones that is obviously broken, and a variety of other cables and such. Oh and added bonus, the shoe box was emptied, so it’s out the door too!
Day 20: Papers, Cards & Coupons
I found the little iPod stereo that I thought I had already gotten rid of… I got rid of the adapter pieces to it already, so out it goes, along with its colour options and power cables. The rest of this collection seems to be a little bit like cheating, but I found a box full of old papers, birthday and Christmas cards, ticket stubs, coupons, membership cards and the like. A lot of them were really, really old… Like from 2009 and 2010. If I counted them individually it would be way over the required 20 item count, but I figure stacks of paper can’t be individually counted… It’s hard to tell how many papers are under that stack in the photo, but it was quite a bit. I went and shredded most of them and my little shredder was working overtime.
Day 21: Randomness
I found another box with cables in it! So, out the door went 4 more cables, 2 sets of Xbox headphones (my husband’s), a pair of scissors, a ruler, a random piece of yarn, 2 old locks, a baseball, a squash ball, a souvenir poker chip, some hand strengthener thing, really old and melty chap-stick, a broken piece off a photo frame, another stack of birthday cards, some plastic bags, and some souvenir pamphlets, another empty shoe box, an empty tin and a hard rock cafe box. I think that adds up to about 21 items.
Day 22: Stickers!
In searching for another shoe box to empty, I found one that was stuff full with stickers. All sorts of random bands, surf shops, skate shops, I don’t even know what else. I used to decorate my binders and notebooks for school with all of these, but they have been sitting there for years and years now… (I’m 12 years out of university this year…) I’d say there was at least 100 stickers in that box, if not more… And I got rid of the box too! Add to that some random tools, an old remote control that we no longer use, and a random electronic thing that we think might be a microphone attachment for a phone? I also got rid of 2 notepads, 2 notebooks, 1 box of hello kitty valentines, 1 boxed stationary set, 1 mini binder with paper in it, a big blue flower and another shoe box. Oh and two random pieces of yellow craft foam. I say that is enough for day 22, right?
to be continued…
So there we have it… the next installment of my Mins Game reporting. I know I am still behind, but hopefully this weekend I can catch up. So far, the total count is: 250+ items.
