Decluttering, Week 2

...hard to believe that another week has gone by. Since garbage day is every 2nd Friday, I may have to cheat a bit, and say "garbage", knowing it will go in a pile until next Friday. So, what are we ridding ourselves of this week:
  1. 2 garbage bags of clothes, gone to charity
  2. 2 grocery bags full of school supplies, gone to charity
  3. 50 or so old DC6150 computer tape backups, 10-15 years old. [tar -xvf ] :) (interesting that these tapes fill a plastic milk crate, but the contents of them all combined will fit on the tiny memory card in my Blackberry).
  4. Set of 4 Cordless Phones, VTech junk, less than a year old, warranty ??
  5. 2 Canon Ink-jet Printers, recycle / garbage.
  6. Old P3 700mhz computer (2001), recycle / garbage.
  7. another old P3 computer/tower, recycle / garbage.
  8. Old DVD Player (2001), recycle / garbage.
  9. 2 old sleeping bags, garbage
  10. old wooden chair, headed for the kindling pile.
That is actually quite a load, easily more than 10 things if I wanted to get picky :)
This is fun :)

UPDATE: We took the cordless phones back to Canadian Tire and they replaced them with a new set. (We got them at Christmas, and even in my clutter, I found the invoice).
