* 1 Liner book to go with the video series I bought (Amazon UK)
* 1 Modernism magazine (subscription)
* 3 pieces of Lundby Blue Heaven bedroom furniture. (eBay)
* 1 pair shoes (gift from a colleague)

* 1 copy of The Lundby Letter (subscription)
* 1 Wallpaper magazine (newsagents)

* 29 books and 11 CDs (Lifeline Bookfair fallout)
* 1 stripy T shirt, 1 pair black shoes and 3 CDs (like I needed any more!): Salvos.
* 2 bookmarks, 2 books: Melbourne trip (one of these books is super-exciting: more info in the next couple of days!)

Total In this week: 67

Out:

* 2 pairs of opaque pantihose which are fine except for the fact they slowly fall down every time I wear them and drive me nuts (bin)

* 1 image software: donated to a friend who says she doesn't have any on her computer.
* 15 books: posted to a friend as post-study candyfloss for the brain
* 2 coathangers: finally returned to the drycleaners after hanging off my banister for so long it's embarrassing!

* 1 pair size 7 Converse One Stars, one size too big, bought off eBay a couple of years ago in desperation (I thought I could wear thick socks with them). They make me feel like Ronald McDonald: donated to a friend.
* 50 old Elle Decoration mags: sitting in the boot of the car waiting to go to the Lifeline Bookfair collection box first thing in the morning.

Where can you drop off things for the Lifeline Bookfair? I have lots of magazines to donate and I didn't get around to it in time for this year.

Their depot is at 66 Hefferen Street Mitchell (with donation box outside).

If that's too far I believe Blockbuster Video stores are also collection points (ring and check first in case this has changed)

Blockbuster isn't collecting anymore.

That Lifeline Bookfair is doing you such damage, it really sounds like it must a book Mecca.
