dianro2 - Thanks so much! I am looking at it as a GOOD Challenge! I told my friend what I was doing and I think she is on board also - if nothing else, she will also help with the accountability. I am going to start on Monday since I have an unexpected day off and DH will be at work. Rule #1 - DH must be out of the house when things exit or he will be dragging them back in. Black garbage bags and my car trunk also help. Do what you got to do.
Karalin: Thanks for welcome back and right back at you. It will be fun to compare notes and be productive together.
Beaglelady and Karalin: Also, on the sock issue, how about a drop in shelter or organization that would help the homeless in your area? I have heard that you shouldn't give dogs socks because they can pull the threads and if they digest can get caught in their intestines and could require surgery in worst cases...I'm not an expert, but I don't take the chance with my girls.
