- a pair of boots
- a tomato planter
- a george foreman grill

- a brand new tote bag,

- 6 random kitchen items
- a ring sling
- 2 sets of placemats
- 2 manual breast pumps
But since I'm going to schedule a Salvation Army pick up for this week, and not open the boxes that are left… I'm going to go ahead and count the other things too.
- 3 pairs of shoes
- More hair stuff. I'm just counting this as 1 as there isn't much left.
- Bottle dishwasher basket.
- Diaper bag/changing pad/etc
- 2 cookie sheets
- a mobile
- a set of coasters
- a set of mugs
- some baby bottles
- drinking glasses
- a camelbak bladder thing, never used
- a candle holder
- a pouch sling (NOT a recalled/unsafe bag sling. It's a Karma Baby pouch. I just don't use it.)
- another tea pitcher
- 41 clothing items.
That's 58 more things, which brings me to 300!
I knew the beginning would be easy/quick, and I'm sure from now on it'll be harder to find stuff to give away. The “initial sweep” has been done, for the most part, and now I'll have to really look for more to share. But that's kind of the point. If I wanted it to be an easy task, not a challenge, I would've made it “Give100.”
I'm going to see if our FRG wants any of the stationery for fundraising purposes, and if they don't, or don't want all of it, I'll donate the rest to Salvation Army too.
Last time I counted, I had over 250 packages (I illustrated it all and used to sell it at craft shows. It was really popular in Pensacola, Florida, but not as much when we moved from there.) I'll probably count it as 50 when it moves on, because it's just SO much… but I don't want to “cheat” and just be finished with the challenge that easily.
Anyway, have you joined in the challenge to #Give500 things away? My self-imposed deadline is by Christmas, but you can choose your own time frame that works better for you. Read about it on the original #Give500 post, and link up with your blog there, or post your lists in the comments there if you don't have a blog. I'd love to follow along with your own challenge progress!
Be sure to chat on twitter and Instagram using the #Give500 tag also!
