Freedom

I felt lighter… and not just because I had just tossed a boxful of unread magazines into the dumpster!

For a long time I felt obligated that I must read those magazines. I finally realized it was not going to happen and decided to just toss them out! I definitely had a sense of freedom now that I did not have to find the time in my life or the space in my home for those magazines.

Since then, I have donated old educational magazines to schools, which were very glad to get them. (Nursing homes or other places may be interested in your stack of magazines, too). It was a little more trouble than the walk to the alley, but definitely rewarding to hear the librarians’ expressions of gratitude for our old National Geographics and for our kids’ old Ranger Rick magazines.
