You know how I am destashing yarn and clearing out my closets in preparation for the move next month? Look what I took to the Salvation Army today:
Looks like a lot, huh?
This is what the back seat of my car looked like:
I donated 8 garbage bags full of clothing and shoes today. Some of these clothes are from high school! I'm so proud of myself for actually going through with this, I am making a conscious effort to curb my packrat ways. My clothing closet is literally half as full now, and I have 1/3 as many shoes. All of which is good, considering I never wore that "extra" stuff anyway!
Giving this stuff to the Salvation Army is good on so many levels that it put me in a really cheerful mood for the rest of the day! So I took advantage of that momentum and called around to a bunch of apartments, set up some appointments and went to look at a place that was surprisingly cheap.
Well, turns out it wasn't cheap enough! You will probably not believe it when I tell you (well, unless you've shopped for cheap housing in Manhattan or other cities, I guess!), so please prepare yourselves:
This 1 bedroom has a "water closet" with the toilet and sink in one place, and then the shower elsewhere. Not that weird, right? Well, take a wild stab at just where they stuck the shower. Ready?
The shower is next to the other sink -- IN THE KITCHEN! As in, when you open the accordion door next to the kitchen sink, that's the shower stall!
I laughed so hard (after I left the apartment), this would make an excellent episode of Seinfeld!
