Thrift Share Giveaway and Project Simplify Hot Spot #5

I had intended to share this post yesterday to match up the timing with Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday and the announcement of hot spot #5 over at Simple Mom for Project Simplify, but under the auspices of better late than never, here it is today.

For this week's thrift share giveaway I'm going to offer up something a little bit different than the vintage goodies that I have posted for the past several weeks.  Looking for a new home this week are seasons one and two of Lost on DVD.  I was absolutely mad about this show when it first came out and I watched each episode of the first two seasons without fail.  I started out strong watching the third season as well, but then I was so very ill during my pregnancy with Miss Intrepid that I didn't keep up with the rest.  I decided that I would just rent the DVDs and watch them after the third season wrapped up to get ready for seasons four, five, and six.  And then real life happened.  I had a baby that needed much more of everything from me than my first two.  I was adjusting to having three young children under the age of five at home with me.  We moved to Wales temporarily.  Needless to say, keeping up with just about anything - let alone a television show - fell to the wayside.

About a year ago I was very excited to find these DVD sets at my local Goodwill.  I bought them with the thought that I could get Running Man to watch them with me (I think he saw an episode here and there, but for the most part it would have been new to him) and then we could rent the subsequent seasons.  That was a year ago.  We have watched none of them.  I am not going to make the time for them anytime soon.  At this point I'm ready to let these DVDs go to someone who might actually watch them because it is falling into the category of aspirational clutter at my house.  So - if you are interested in winning these DVDs, simply leave a comment on this post between now and midnight EST on Saturday (since I'm a day late it only seems fair to give folks some extra time to comment).

Warning: seriously addictive viewing enclosed

Congratulations to Kylie over at Lucy Violent Vintage for winning last week's giveaway - the vintage mushroom and ladybug latch hook pillow kit will be on its way to her soon!

On the Project Simplify front, Tsh announced the final hot spot yesterday.  Drum roll please...the final hot spot is whatever we want.  I have so many areas of my home that I'd like to tackle (and Tsh offered some great suggestions), so I had to think a bit about what I most wanted to take on this week.  After some consideration I have settled on my linen closets.  I have one in the hallway that is overflowing with linens and board games and my master bathroom closet also seems to be bursting at the seams.  I feel confident that I can completely get through these closets in a week (unlike some of the other hot spots like kid toys and clothes) and I look forward to sharing my results here on Friday.

In the meantime, I'm linking up to Thrift Share Monday.  Here's to wishing you all a wonderful day!

  1. Lost let me down! I did love following along though, but I thought the ending was cheap.

    Are you going to keep at the decluttering even though the Simple Mom project will end?

    Have you seen orgjunkie.com
    She is doing a 52 week program and all the other participants are really supportive. THey will come cheer you on. :)
