It seems like every year around the major changes in season, I think about going through my things and purging. I find this to be quite therapeutic, and it really helps to make room for life. I suggest when you change from summer clothes to autumn and winter clothes, go through and see what you do not like, or does not fit anymore, or just is not your style anymore. I like to find friends or family who need them, or pass them on to the local thrift store. Another option is to see if there are refugees in your area who need some provisions. I also like to go through movies and magazines, and see what needs to be moved out. I like to give my extra clothes to the local thrift store, but I also have discovered that you can also donate books, magazines, and movies to your local library, and they can sell them to benefit the library.
This time of year is also a great time to cull your garden for any leftover produce, either pick it and give it away or let someone come and glean what is left. Another way to bless others with your excess produce is by taking some to your local food pantry, half way house, or take some to church and bless your church family. If you have excess canning jars laying around in your garage, offer them to your friends and neighbors that take the produce. My Mom used to have chickens and she was always sending home eggs with us. What a blessing they were, until the coons came in and ate them. My point in all of this is that blessing others out of your excess, and with the things you do not need anymore, will bless you in turn. So get to cleaning and ridding out, as one of the older women in my life used to say. Make way for a new season with a cleaner house and more storage room.
