Happy Boxing Day!

Boxing Day isn’t celebrated much in the States. It started out long ago as the day when wealthy land owners would give supplies to their workers for the following year. Hundreds of years later, the day has turned into a day to think of others – those who are less fortunate or who are in a lower position. Whatever one’s take on it, it’s a great day to give to others and declutter some things that you don’t need.

We plan to look around our house today for items we no longer need. Boxing Day is the perfect holiday for an obessessive declutterer (ahem!). It’s also a way to start the coming new year off right, with fewer things to take care of. I also plan to set up an official donation station in our garage in order to keep the donations going out in a timely manner all year long.
