I'm also trying to get rid of stuff I don't need, but that may be functional, and worth donating (or trying to sell on craigslist?). Thus far, what I'm willing to part with it pretty insignificant. Landline telephone stuff (I don't foresee buying a landline again). Some textbooks for courses I'm not interested in (like that ethics class). That's about it so far.
I've got two wines in the works, now. I have a Borgon(Something) Rouge that I just started on Thursday. I haven't really been good at keeping the temperatures in range. But, that's a cheap wine that should be ready to drink soon. Less than a month to make, and at least 1 month to age. The Savaignon Cabernet Merlot thing won't be ready for like 6 months, at least.
