Here are some fun Canadian census facts (2011)
*The number of seniors aged 65 and over increased 14.1% between 2006 and 2011 to nearly 5 million. This rate of growth was higher than that of children aged 14 and under (0.5%) and people aged 15 to 64 (5.7%).
*In 2011, census data showed for the first time that there were more people aged 55 to 64, typically the age group where people leave the labour force, than aged 15 to 24, typically the age group where people enter it.
*Among the working-age population, 42.4% were in the age group 45 to 64, a record high proportion.

January the Month to De-junk

FYI January rivals the spring garage sale rush for donations. That means that we get way more donations at the beginning of January than most other months. Why is that? My guess would be New Year’s resolutions to de-clutter, to get fit, get active, to play board games, to read more tend to have people cleaning up and cleaning out… Whatever it may be we are encouraging you to stick with it.

declutter-summer-2013-2

 

We have done a clean sweep of the store over the holidays are are excited for what the new year will bring. We have a HUGE selection of winter boots, coats, clothes, hockey gear, high vis rain gear, steel toed work boots… Come and check it out. OPEN Monday to Saturday 11-5

A Serving Of Silver ~ UpCyCLeD Friday

 

Shifting gears from Halloween today into projects to make for Christmas. Serving trays were a must back in the day but now they just clutter the cupboards and my store shelves. Here are some great remakes of a classic household staple. Pinterest is my ESCAPE to the rain 🙂 http://www.pinterest.com/kitimatthrift/upcycle/2c907d229c8425c85f6bc73148a706d3 2cca86f7e98aa0444fb9009e98b203aa 3d7a8143f44fbb06203d5bfdb45a442d 4a44646d58552a1ca14b3d9924858f11 5a349ffbe93eb30067eb10513ca2ac77 5a996f91a4629e90076349b152880cc0 6f1c639f2f8d5852263e55ec1bba08ad 7f1d5624761b4a652614031e54aecb0d 8e9fcb5d024d2802ea9de6564a452ad1 8fd67693cc3ec1d759e2d7b610819268 54da5fd3671f91be7a7635dec6836e83 55a0793584e828db028dac8d5352527b 84b680a4dd63963a9327e6355aa5a2c9 149b05ca55d448415cfb765670efd3ab 203aa01bfbe1d6b249e5b635f2195137 436f5b17ba219b38e2a81b50af6e1ee6 813e3329dd2dfd76ee427dfe6cd41964 3504f3a0e05a5ad035d48ea3ddb93eda 7247abb826c74b9620a489aa87c92efb 92765d815ec76d721db2ad94254603bb 4364203a573b7c5bb3fc75e3ae359c3a 98816561e586a0af9f6b532ed50b00ba a049ccd01afa4fa8d229913b0430794d a18152da364a3e947975531694834d8e aa47f80f7a7af6176e20cdd8429c2a72 b27edfc31357d5a2b059868b915b3b09 c7c90023faa9f4d78e990c64251bd788 e6eb3071ec18862ffa605aafac240111 e53d2d5cd2b244df65065380daf02fe4 eb250ead5bd92e537f27ef856fd9ccb8 ecf7d4e6d4b9cd7ee3fb14a7291bef16 f7f3b5e9d069c60beae6c6155254e0b8 f75b98e66946406499cb6111debb7c58 f1325b9e7e551fef0cbe46cb500e580e fb62f5ac9c6fcf7f238c5deaaf4bfee4 fcca129942436447776879f8b9eb2adf

Monday’s Fresh Start

I have said many times I love Mondays~ a fresh week, a reset day. This week I am getting back on track (really I am)! Chore charts are back effect, schedules and routines all starting with me. The more in control and organized I am, the smoother this home will run. It is MUCH easier to get this accomplished with the hubby out hunting with our boy for the week. It has been 2 MONTHS on Saturday since I have been at work, I am looking forward to going back to the job I love and when I do I want our home to be ready for the smooth transition. There have been 6 long months of neglect have built up around here. Summer is an easy time to let things slide, enjoy the sun and do it later. If later is never planned to be dealt with, the jobs never get done. It is overwhelming on the whole… I am sure that there are troll hoarders living in my basement because I have not been down there in 3 months and it looks like a BOMB went off. (they do love their Barbies & Hunting)
Today’s tasks… personal schedule, chore charts & Octobers goal/job list. A little bit everyday, doing what I can, when I can.

My store is in God’s hands

Prayer-Hands-God-ADThis is an interesting week for us. We are still in limbo about weather or not we have a building to rent for the upcoming year and at what cost that year would be. Your prayers in regard to this matter would be greatly valued. I believe in what we do, I believe there is a great need with in the community for a place to donate to and an alternate place to shop from…. (side note: on the 15th of July we celebrated our 6th year open!)
