Apart from knitting, another winter thing I do is to go through all the magazines I have bought during the year and try to make several piles to pass on. I didn't do this last year and have a large pine box full of magazines, plus three piles on the sitting room floor and these sitting on another pine box.
In my ideal world I would never have to discard any reading matter. I am an inveterate hoarder and find it very difficult to get rid of anything I think I might have reason to look at in the future.
Three things I like:
1. Slipping in between newly laundered sheets.
2. Knowing I still have several packets of cheddar cheese in the refrigerator.
3. Reaching into the nesting box and bringing out newly laid eggs.
