One Thing In, One Thing Out (Via The Thrifty Abode)

We don't have much room to store unnecessary stuff at our house, so when something comes in I try to get an item that we already own out.  Judging by the state of one of our junk drawers, you could guess that I'm not very good at sticking to my own little policy. 

Today, however, was different.  I followed my own rule and the olive green drapes that were in our living room have found a new home thanks to Craigslist.
They will not sit in a closet for years taking up space while I wait for them to be useful again.  Plus, the cash I got for the drapes pretty much covers the cost of the new ones.  Woo hoo!

This weekend I plan on taking care of our many junk drawers (and closets) to make up for a couple years of not following the "one in, one out" rule.  Wish me luck.

I'd love for all the followers of Cheap Thrills to join me over at my new blog, The Thrifty Abode!
