KonMari - The Garage Sale

Tomorrow and Saturday is the culmination of this round of KonMari - THE GARAGE SALE.
In The Magical Art of Tidying, Marie Kondo never mentions a sale. She wants you to put it all in the trash, into donation, or gifted to someone who could truly want and need it.

In America, we have garage sales.

I donated all the clothing and most of the shoes. I could not see selling my stretched and worn items, even for a quarter. The rest of the stuff? I think it is good and could make someone happy while bringing in a few dollars.

Here is the deal: all items are on flash sale until Saturday at 3pm. What remains will be donated to the Vets. I do not donate to Goodwill as they are basically the country's largest garage sale and make money off of your donations. And that money goes into the CEO's pocket more than any other.

I will donate to the local Vets because they actually give the items to families who can use them, or resell in the local base-store. This makes sense to me.

I hope to se…
