Thursday Thirteen #19

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Has Thirteen Things ever felt like a domestic chore? I’ve been on a bit of a cleaning and tidying fad for a couple of weeks so this weeks Thirteen Things from me is Thirteen Things Mark Caldwell has cleared out recently.

  1. Old computing books for versions of languages and software that are long gone.
  2. Video tapes of films that I’ve got the DVD or that I’ll never want to watch again.
  3. A paper lamp shade with a hole in one side.
  4. Jeans with a zip that was bust.
  5. Glass jars to be recycled.
  6. An old kitchen waste bin from when I was a student and needed a bin for five or more peoples rubbish.
  7. Free software CDs for ISPs that are long gone and software I don’t want anymore.
  8. Old work shirts because I had too many that I didn’t fit anymore
  9. Magazines to be recycled.
  10. Dust, dirt and cobwebs from places it’s hard to clean. I’ve evicted a few spiders this week.
  11. Random books I’ll never want to read again or in an odd rare case read any more of in particular a history of the design of London that looked interesting but when I started reading it turned out to be written by someone with an unhealthy belief that if you draw circles from one place to another and find a third place on the same circle it must have been planned and that coincidence never happens.
  12. Old washing up bowl and drainer that were scratched and wouldn’t come clean despite lots of washing with hot water and detergent. And spraying with cleaning solutions. And soaking. And scrubing.
  13. Odd socks.

So what have you or should you be clearing out?

Wow, now I feel like this place is really junky. So many things to clean out, so much time spent blogging. Happy TT.

Tink Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Hmmm.... I should follow your example, but I'm veeeery bad at throwing things away.
Yes, i was over the moon after my TT was finished! *lol* Thanks for visiting!

GarthTrekker Thursday, July 19th, 2007

I throw out old socks when I go on a trip - just leave em behind after I wear them. :-) Lyn

Susan Helene Gottfried Thursday, July 19th, 2007

I've been on a cleaning binge. With kids, the clutter multiplies, so before my cleaning lady comes, I target a new area of the house and go nuts.

I bet my township loves me; they get money for every pound of recycling we create. I create a LOT of recycling for them.

Denise Thursday, July 19th, 2007

good job! I haven't thrown much out lately. :(

Fence Thursday, July 19th, 2007

I seem to be in an endless pattern of throwing out clothes, yet somehow, never having any more room in my wardrobe. Tis a mystery :)

Happy T13

Starrlight Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Magazines are mine...oh and Laundry. But let's not talk about that, mmk?

Samantha Lucas Thursday, July 19th, 2007

This was a great list because today is the first big house cleaning I'm going to do since I moved recently. I promised myself I wouldn't do clutter at the new place. LMAO wish me luck!

Lady Rose Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Good idea to clear stuff out - I so need to do more of that

samulli Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Ah, isn't throwing out stuff just fun? I could do that every day. Unfortunately I always run out of things to throw away before long. If only my dad would let me loose in his garage - now that would be a field day. Alas, he is a packrat. What is it with men and their urge to keep every damn thing they might eventually find a use for in a hundred years again? Never understood that really. ;o)

The Gal Herself Thursday, July 19th, 2007

You should be an inspiration to me. My home is just overrun with STUFF. One of my particular issues is with back issues: magazines I really mean to ready, I really do, but somehow haven't gotten to.

Robin Thursday, July 19th, 2007

I can empathize. I'm in the middle of a major decluttering effort here as well. If I didn't know better I'd wonder if I was nesting...

katherine. Thursday, July 19th, 2007

I forgot to do spring cleaning

maiylah Thursday, July 19th, 2007

i should be clearing up our closet, too ... too many clothes we wouldn't be wearing anymore.

happy TT

KarenW Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Living in this small apartment, we have gotten rid of everything we didn't absolutely need or really love - misc. books, excess tupperware, some clothes. Happy TT!

sasha Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Which reminds me I need to clean the storage room soon :)

Happy TT!

MamaLee Thursday, July 19th, 2007

How much would you charge to clean out my basement!??

Happy TT!

Miscellaneous-Mum Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Any go up on ebay?? We sold some old furniture lately that I thought would have NO CHANCE, but still they sold! woo hoo!

DK Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Three years ago I started a new "tradition". Every week I collect a bag of misc. stuff from around the house. Once a month those bags go to one of the area thrift stores. I hate clutter. I don't take single socks though; they go in the trash. lol
Happy TTing and thanks for stopping by!

Lori Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Hey, how do you change the date to show tomorrow before its even here?

FindingYourPath Thursday, July 19th, 2007

One of these days I'm going to tackle my garage, maybe, sometime soon when it's too hot or too cold, but not right now, guess I need to think about it.


Jenny McB Thursday, July 19th, 2007

We did a huge clean up last fall of all the toys and movies that my kids have outgrown. I refused to let anything back in the house. What wasn't sold at a yard sale went to charity.

It's an on going battle here, but we have gotten much better this year. Don't you feel like you have regained so much more living space?

Thorne Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Good on you!!! I'm in a mess! I just can't seem to throw anything away! (Like those old disc's... I swear I'm gonna glue um front to front [laser side out] and hang them in the trees and garden to ?maybe? scare birds, but definitely make rainbows!

pussreboots Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Oooh. I have a bunch of mismatched trainers that need ditching. Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

FRIDAY'S CHILD Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Whoa! Those were lots of things to put away huh.
Come over and visit my T13. It is up now.

:) Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Now, if I could get "The Hubby" to do the same, I'd be all set!

Thanks for sharing.

Happy TT!

Joely Sue Burkhart Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Yikes, I have a TON of stuff to go through. No time!!

Ben Clapton Thursday, July 19th, 2007

That's another thing I did in my holidays, Cleaned up my room. Forgot about that one in my list.

Nicole Austin Thursday, July 19th, 2007

The list of things I need to clean out is endless. My family tends to be packrats, so we could likely fill an industrial sized dumpster. LOL!

Happy TT! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my list.

Thomma Lyn Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

Hee! I hear you on the odd socks -- I wonder where their sock-partners go? Into a black hole of socks? Into an alternate universe of socks? At any rate, I have to wonder if theoretical physicists will someday stumble on the Sock Dimension wherein will reside everybody's lost odd socks. ;-D

Happy TT to you! :)

Sue Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

I soooo need to clean up things, but in the middle of summer with the temps being so hot it can wait until the Fall .. :) Happy TT!
