Do you know what’s on SALE?

Thanks for all of the great feedback from my last blog! It sounds like many of you are well on the way to decluttering your lives. And personally, I was the recipient of a friend’s scarf that she never wore. So thoughtful of her. I hope she doesn’t stop in at Goodwill anytime soon…
