Magpie Tales 221 Hoarding

Thrift Shop courtesy of Tess Kincaid


It's in my way
I'm giving it away
Too much stuff
It's really rough
Because I know
As I give it a toss 
Sure enough
I'll need it tomorrow

Thanks to Tess Kincaid for Magpie Tales

  1. I loved it and had grate fun thank you

  2. Oh, I love shops like these!! Wish I had one close to where I live, but my purse is probably glad that I don't!!! Glad to be able to add your blog to my blog list -- finally!!! Hope you're enjoying a great weekend!!

  3. This is probably oh so true. We are uncluttering our lives and it's a wonderful thing.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. :)

  4. That's the dilemma I am facing as I clean out my classroom. "But what if I need this next year?"

  5. So true. Down-sizing my lodgings dislodged a lot. Although I am learning the difference between needing it and missing it ;-0. I've often thought thrift stores were opened by those ingenious people who knew how to organize their hoarding into a business.

  6. throwing out stuff, always leaves one with that feeling; ; have a nice Sunday

    much love...

  7. Haha...sounds familiar! Have fun weekend! xx

  8. Yes, when you get rid of something, the next day you need it!

  9. Love it. And so true. The minute you throw out something you need it. Take care.

  10. Yep! There's a reason i'm a messy mimi.

  11. Oh yes, so very true. This was cute!

  12. Perfect. I finally had to make myself a rule: if I haven't used it in one year, out it goes. I have only ever regretted it once. (A record album I decided I wanted, after all. Oh well.)

  13. A sharp and skillful response to the prompt...

  14. I've a whole storage unit full of such things! I've been trying to go through my old clothes and give away those I know I won't ever wear again...or those that have sentimental value.
    I'm hopeless.
    Thank you for visiting The Netherworld!

  15. The way I get around this dilemma is by thinking that I'm passing things on for someone else to love, so in theory it's not being tossed away! Great Mag!

  16. I am a hoader and I feel the same way, it will have a use someday :)

  17. Rule of thumb: if you haven't used it in a year (or three!), haven't thought about it, or forgotten that you even had it, then you don't NEED it!! (Although Murphy's Law does dictate that a need will turn up as soon as you get rid of it!)

  18. Ain't that the truth?



I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
