Day 13- DVDs and CDs

It is finally time to go through your DVD and CD collections. These items have a lot of personal value for many people.

Let’s be realistic though…if you haven’t used them in the past year, you don’t need them. Also, with video and music streaming services so readily available, there really is absolutely no practical reason to have dozens (or hundreds) of DVDs or CDs.

Keep a few for raining days (or for when the wifi is out), but get rid of the rest!!

For those of you that have already completed this topic, where did you take your old DVDs? Do pawn and consignment shops want these types of items?

Fall Photo Set up

Fall Photo Set up

Happy Fall

For our end of the Fall party, we wanted a cute area to capture memories.  I decided to put together a fall-themed set up for pictures.  With the chilly weather on the forecast, we decided to set up indoors.

I chose a plain wall in our mudroom.  We already had the bench in place.  Then surround the bench with all things fall!  We purchased bundles of corn stalks, small gourds, decorative field corn, pumpkins, and mums from our local plant farm and country store.  I strategically chose to host my fall party after Halloween.  This meant that all of the pumpkins, mums, and other decor at my local store were discounted by at least 50%.

 I purchased the banners from amazon.

The photo area was a big hit at our party.  We now have tons of great photos to look back on as our kids grow up.  I plan to set something up at our future parties as well.

**Now that the party is over, it is time to tear my photo area down.  The mums will get planted somewhere in our garden to provide fall color for years to come.  As the gourds and pumpkins begin to rot, they will get taken down to our compost pile.  The decorative corn and cornstalks will get put in the compost pile as well.  Please don’t throw these types of things away.  They will decompose much better in a compost pile than they would in a land fill.**

Happy Fall Y’all
