August Declutter Challenge – Day 12
- I gathered together all the stamps I had torn off incoming mail (about 20)
- I found 2 used inkjet cartridges
Both are going to church with me later today. We collect cancelled stamps. After they are properly trimmed they are eventually sent to a company that buys used stamps. The money earned buys curriculum (I think Bible and school) for children in 3rd world countries. If you’d like to send you cancelled stamps to me, leave a comment. :-)
The women’s ministry team collects used inkjet cartridges, cell phones, etc. The money was used at Retreat time to fund a handful of scholarships. The next time we turn in these things, we’ll send the money to some workers in the Arab Lands who don’t have proper facilities in their homes yet (think toilets).
Everyone doing the declutter challenge is making it fit their life and time.Some declutter bunches of stuff. Some do one thing. This is what the guidelines state: Declutter one thing each day for a week and blog about it. GO HERE for the challenge rules. It’s not too late to join.
