Good Morning Everyone!
Another week to get some more organizing done!
I hope you all had a good weekend.
We went to the flea Market on Sunday,
Sold a bunch of Stockpile items and some items from the Garage.
Made $266!!! Planning on going back next weekend with a bunch more items.

Today My Goals Are:

1) Re-Organize my stockpile - It got destroyed on Sat when we were pulling items for the flea market

2) Pull Coupons from papers Start Cutting coupons

3) Print Pricing Signs for the flea market

Besides that I want to ake ite easy today.
We forgot sunscreen yesterday, and so not feeling to great with my sunburn.
Plus I really need to get some of the house cleaned.

Suggtion Tip for the week:
Reduce! Reuse! Recycle!
With organizing try not to just throw things away.
Try to save our landfills, and find other creative ways to get rid of your things. Some ideas are Freecycle, Craigslist, Family, Friends, and thrift stores, etc.
Try to recycle your newspaper at a paperretriever.com bin
to help support a local school or church.
Try to find places to recycle your other items like plastic, glass and aluminum cans, etc.
What are some of your own ideas on getting rid of stuff besides just tossing it into the trash?
