Once you're done, I believe you can either hit the "Post Reply" button at the very bottom of the page or the "Quote" button in any of the posts in the thread.

That should bring up all the quotes on your reply screen box thing. Then I usually delete some of the quoted material because the forum software quotes people's ENTIRE posts and many times I just want to respond to something specific.

I quoted you and bzar above for example.
Awesome Adawn! I never checked out that middle button so thanks for the guidance.

Vannie, Great decision. Carhartt's and MN are made for each other. Same with our area. I had a pair of insulated Carhartt bib overalls that I'd live in some winters. I'd wear them over long underwear and they were perfect for all my outdoor dog and horse stuff.

Yesterday I went through a lot of sheets and pillow cases and got them laundered since some had collected dust even though stored in a closet. I decided what we needed to keep and what could be added to the thrift shop box which went to town today. We clearly had more than enough. It felt good to get that done.

My downsizing efforts took a few steps backward yesterday.

I got a cat from the shelter without really making a plan, so I stopped off to get supplies on the way home.

One little cat, so much gear!! Guess I'd forgotten how much stuff accumulates.

Aww....I sit here cuddled up with my former shelter kitty...and we BOTH thank you for rescuing your new cat. High Paw!!

We think it's space well spent!

Does the cat have a name yet?

Congratulations, and thank you for giving a kitty a new warm home with lots of new stuff and gear.

One of the reasons for downsizing in general is so that you have room for the things that are really important to you. I'd say that adopting a kitty should be of highest priority!

Good job!
