Slow Blogging/House Cleaning

One of my closest friends is organizing a yard sale for this Saturday and has invited some of her friends to participate.  Seeing that as an opportunity to clean out some of the clutter in my apartment, I started to go through my closets, cabinets and cupboards.  It was amazing how stuff accumulates.

Within 30 minutes, I had six pairs of jeans to sell, 10 pairs of khakis, seems I hadn’t sorted through those pants since sometime in the early 1990s.  I found a pair of pants I hadn’t worn since 1994 or 95–and to think I moved that pair clear across the country!  While it’s exciting at first when you find things to give away, after a while, it becomes exhausting, especially if you want to keep insist on holding onto things with sentimental (but not practical) value.

I even found an old coffee maker.  Instead of getting rid of it when I replaced it, I simply moved it to a kitchen cabinet. . . . And I still have yet to dispose of my vintage microwave.

If any of you Angelenos are in need of cheap stuff, you’ll have to check us out. . .

Here are the details:

This coming Saturday May 30 from 8am-3pm as the corner of Cahuenga and Bloomfield in Toluca Lake. One block south of Moorpark. East side of Cahuenga.   (In the Valley.)
