Shopping at Home

USAShoestring is hopeful about getting this visa renewed in the next couple of weeks so he will be leaving us for his own home !! Today I managed to persuade him to start going through the drawers and drawers and shelves and shelves of stuff which he has been storing with us. Quite a bit of it was rubbish or was of no use to him anymore and so we made several piles:- throw away; give away; see if anybody here wants it and so important it needs to go to the USA at some point !

The throw away pile included lots of paper and a very ancient pair of rugby boots which started to disintegrate when I wanted to clean them up to donate. The give away pile consisted of lots of very large sportswear and some very bright ties. He sold a few books and then we were left with a few shelves of very important stuff to take back with him and an enormous moving box of stuff people here might want.

Out of this box I got a large double sheet, a set of towels, a new lamp, a new telephone, a sewing kit, a shoe cleaning kit, a first aid kit, 2 silk ties, 8 cotton pillow cases, 2 white T shirts and 2 pillow protectors ! Phew ! Shopping at home for free has been so good that I'm too minds now about whether I can use that free IKEA voucher I got at Christmas time. It only goes to show that you should always look at home first before making a shopping list.

So, we have cleared about one eighth of USAShoestring's room, I wonder what we will find next  ?
