Yesterday we went over and filled two boxes with stuff, under her sink in the kitchen and bathrooms. I sorted out all her kitchen sink stuff and found her hearing aids that had been missing for 3 years. Who knew! She won't use them anyway. This morning, we went into our own cupboards and unloaded a whole box of coffee cups so we can make room for hers when she arrives. We also cleared a shelf so that we could put all of her medications on it and it is a rotary shelf so easy to look for things. Then I went into the bathroom. We now have enough bandaids to last a lifetime and gauze and 4 bottles of liquid bath cleanser, 4 bottles of peroxide almost full and 10 bars of soap. She doesn't even use soap so that soap is going into personal care kits for Lutheran World Relief. They are in desperate need, I guess because of all the earthquakes and tsunamis in poor countries like Haiti and people need soap. I'm also supposed to include a clean bathtowel so I'll be going through the linen closet next. It doesn't say they have to be new ones and she has some that we can donate. I can make five care kits with the soap so I printed off the other requirements and I'll be off to the dollar store today to retrieve them. Toothbrushes, etc. A bonus find was a package of emery boards. I am desperate for new ones so that was a find. Don't have to buy any.
So its been kind of fun, finding treasures and finding places for them.
Monday is moving day and the movers will bring her stuff over that we are keeping. Some will go to my son who lives nearby and we are simply moving some things around in the house, not getting rid of too much and packing away some things in the shed until such time as we can use them again. I ought to sell all the little knick knacks in my bathroom. There is a new flea market consignment shop opened up here and they will accept things. I made $46 already from some things lying around the house.
She has a small two shelf bookcase that will go into my sewing room to hold fabric! Yea! More organization. So far so good today.
