Clothing for Charity #4

28 09 2011

Bundle of clothing cleaned out of my wardrobe in recent weeks, dropped off to the local Savers (op shop) today, mainly old Winter knits and too-small pre-pregnancy outfits.


Clothing for Charity #3

13 09 2011

083. Give away items to charity five times (3/5) [more info]

Charity bags…baby not included!

I cleaned one side of my wardrobe on the weekend (mainly Winter clothing) and donated them today to a local Savers. Having said that, while I was there dropping off the clothing I saw some near-new looking pairs of shorts for my son in the next size up from what he’s wearing now, so I might pop in there sometimes during the week and pick them up (I accidentally left home without my wallet today…whoops!)

Freecycling Again

5 10 2010

083. Give away items to charity five times (2/5) [more info]
084. Freecycle 20 items (16/20) [more info]

The great Freecycling (giving away items for free through a website so they don’t get thrown out/end up in landfill) spree of 2010 continues. I don’t give away absolute junk, but items with a purpose. Here’s my list so far since I started Mission 101: 

1. Metallic Christmas decorations x 7
2. Digital photo frame keyring
3. Candles and candleholder set
4. Soft rabbit toy
5. Handbags (purses) x 4
6. Small blue glass angel figurine
7. Acrylic nuggets/beads (from table scatters at our wedding)
8. Soapdish and soap giftpack
9. Bathroom samples (small tubes & bottles of shampoo, lotion etc)
10. Leftover pregnancy tests that will expire this year
11. Purple bath products (salt crystals, lotions etc)
12. Nail polish remover
13. Ladies razor (new in pack)
14. Botanical of Australia giftpack
15. Green suitcase on wheels
16. Moving boxes x 12 

I think there might possibly be more, but these I have picture evidence of.

As I am also realising that with pregnancy comes changes in body shape, it was time to clean out clothing that was too small/too tight/too ‘teenage’. What would I never wear again? It was difficult but with the help of my Mum I filled a recyclable bag of clothing to go off to the charity shop (she also took three more bags away of clothing to store until next year when I’m no longer pregnant – now I have plenty of room in my wardrobe).

February Goal Updates

14 02 2010

This is more of a generalised update for the goals that I’m working on at the moment (partly so that I remember what I’m doing!), that aren’t yet complete.

Update includes pictures. Read the rest of this entry »

083. Give items away to charity five separate times

31 01 2010

Why did I choose this goal?  Because what I’ve finished with using/wearing might be exactly what another person needs. I’d rather something just sitting around the house goes to a good home where it’ll be used again.

When will I have achieved this goal? When I have given away five parcels to charity (could be a single item or bag/box).
