You have been busy. Your place must be feeling a little lighter by now. While my list has so many more things going out than in, I seem to still be accumulating. How does that work?

Well done!! To my shame I haven't been posting mine but intend to today! I actually think I managed to get a net loss over Christmas! (all that gift giving!)

I too, believe I should get both my yarn and wine on the PBS!

Third time lucky? - blogger upload reference.

You're good, Taph, that's for sure. JUST 258 nett out in a slow week.

But it does change the way you think, doesn't it? As TSS said on her post, it's not just about getting rid, it's also about not bringing in.

Wow, surely you've got nothing left to throw out! The closest op shop finally reopens tomorrow so my destash can finally get back on track. It's really suffered.
