Conquer Clutter: Clever Idea When Moving
My husband went to see some friends off before they left town and ended up having a really fun time. It was a potluck. They played a game afterwards, kind of like a white elephant game, where they had bags of stuff that they weren't going to move. One at a time, each person had the chance to choose a bag or you could take a bag that someone else had previously opened. My husband ended up with a bag from their junk drawer: pens, pencils and unfinished punch cards from restaurants around town. The punch cards were something we definitely would use. The pens went to school to be put in a box for students to use. Some of the pencils will be donated to the high school and some will be used by our daughter. Some of the other bags had a gallon of Windex, a plant, half of a bottle of olive oil, shortening and molasses, etc. What a very clever way to share things you aren't going to move and make a game out of it!
