books-after

Ah books.  I’m so torn with books. I have some I’m keeping only because I loved reading them when I was younger and I thought my daughter might enjoy them one day.  Silly?  I’m not sure!  However, today, I am determined to purge at least a few books.

I’ve been buying (and borrowing) less books lately because I bought a Kindle a couple of years ago. I avoided those electronic devices for so long, but in the end they really spoke to my “wanting less clutter” side. And now I’m in love with the thing. I actually read more often! And I love that I can have so many books when we go away!

As you might have guessed, today’s activity for the Declutterathon is to sort through our books. I’m going to try my darnedest to be ruthless.

Do you have books you need to be rid of?  How do you ‘rid’ them? Sell them? Donate them?

I’ll will be posting random progress reports throughout the week over in the Simply Frugal Facebook group and Instagram! Follow me on Instagram @simplyfrugal and use the hashtag #declutterathon to get updates and see what others are up to during the challenge!
