A nice positive thing - going through your "treasures" can have a reward

My daughter gave me the new Tidying Up book for Christmas. Subtle hint?

Anyway, I sorted through my bookshelves and found three large boxes of books that I didn't need any more. I decided to let them go to another house to be loved by someone else. So I took the boxes to a local used bookstore. They told me they would either give me cash or credit towards other books. Knowing that I didn't need to bring more books back into the house, I called the high school to see if one of my daughter's favorite English teachers was still there so I could give him the credit to use for his class. He had recently retired, but the Admin at the school told me that the teacher of one of the special needs classes was trying to track down 18 used copies of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for his students.

Excellent! So I took the credit (plus a few bucks) back to the bookstore, bought the three new copies they had in stock and ordered the other 15. These kids will all have new books that their teacher certainly couldn't afford, and I got to clean out some extra stuff in my house. A win-win, I would say.

What do you have in your closets or cupboards?
