One person's crap is another persons... crap?

You know me, you know I am a freebe queen. The dumpster diver diva. The trash tycoon. The hand-me-down ho.
But when does it go too far?
About 90% of my home is filled with furniture/clothing and everything in between, that has been either given to me/bought for me/or picked out from a garage sale. And I love it. But now that I am getting a little older, I am craving some things brand new. I am DYING for a brand new table and chairs. Brand new bed and bedding.
I am also finding that sometimes I go too far with getting free things. I search the 'free' section on Craisglist and Freecycle like a madwoman. I found a sweet 2 person kayak in San Clemente for FREE! I was so excited to get it! I was thinking of all the ways to get it to my house. Borrowing a truck or van? Then it hit me.. we have no room for more crap! Plus when the HELL would I use a kayak? I mean really use it? Just because it is awesome and free, doesn't mean it has my name on it.
So this is the year of organizing my 'treasures' (crap) and REALLY focusing on downsizing even more things in my life. Clutter drives me crazy but I become consumed with the collecting.
Wish me luck on restraining myself come garage sale day.

This morning I woke up at 5am and went to SeaFit for 45 minutes. Then came home and did Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred for 20 minutes. Then turbo walked about 8 miles. Holy hell my feet hurt!
The boys and I walked to Target to buy Daddy a birthday pres. Then we hit up MickeyDees for some grub. Jack had his beloved 'Lamby' at McDees. I remember handing it to him before we set out for home. It is about 2 miles home. Once home, I realized that at some point, lamby jumped ship, or was thrown overboard. Enraged cause it was nap time and I was dying to get some things done while they both slept, we headed ALL the way back to McDees in search of lamby. NO.SUCH.LUCK. I KNEW when I woke up today that it was going to be a Mad Monday. Great day for exercising my bod... bad day for Jack and family.
But on a good note, Target was having a sale of their Thomas trains. Jack got a new one and a new train track for so cheap!!
I would trade it all for his lamb back.

One of my favorite things about being a parent...
finding toys in the most random places.
*Tim found a Zsu Zsu pet inside his shoe this morning.
