Good ideas, Travelbug, I have some of those older ones too. After my mother died my Dad threw out a whole lot of pics. I was upset at the time but I now I thank him. He had said to me - if I don't know who these people are how are you going to know.
Some are easy to toss. I am having a bit of trouble with some of the memories that the photos are stirring up. I have to deal with the past, accept the choices I have made, and move on. I will be glad to have this done. Labeling is a good idea.

Tawney - I did the same thing with photos. A shop near me was having a special on scanning/digitizing pix.
I went through over 100 years of family pix - if they were not labeled, I didn't know who some of them were.
But I now have them on CDs and next step is to go thru them and try to ID at least some of the people.
I threw out a ton of pix. If I didn't know who they were and all relatives of that era are gone, I decided not to keep them.
It was very hard to do - but I know that no one will even look through the pix -even the scanned one.
Makes me feel bad - but a lesson learned.
I now save pic on my computer and name the file as to who is in the pictures.

I have stalled a little on old pictures. I almost put them in the basement for "later" but instead worked out a plan for them. I have numerous photo albums. Years ago when we had to mail a developed film away for processing all the pics we got back were precious. Well - not so much anymore. I have decided to pull apart all the albums, sort and cut back to only the important pics. I think I will store the ones I keep in little boxes. It is going to be a project for me when sitting down in the evening. It will keep me from falling asleep in front of the TV.

I got one hallway cupboard finished and one more to go. The next room (bedroom, office, sewing room) is going to be tough. I will tackle it 15 minutes at a time and it will get done.

It is almost the end of the month and I have not done well with my eating, exercise, focus..... generally a bad month for me.
But I vow that I will do better in October.

I was doing well, then went on a vacation for 2 weeks and totally lost my focus.

I got a good start on the bathroom yesterday. I hope to finish it today. The cupboards are not too bad for junk so mostly cleaning and organizing. It does need a paint job and also some finishing - interesting what you notice when cleaning.

I have now completed two bedrooms. The second one was very hard as it contained old jewelry, keepsakes, etc. I am happy to get it done. I am now on to the bathroom. It should be much easier and faster.

Still very hot and humid here and I'm not sleeping well at night - so I'm feeling exhausted.
I'm so tired - I'm making stupid mistakes and mis-placing stuff , so frustrating and even more stressful (I don't need more stress right now)

Cleaned out my closet yesterday and got rid of 2 bags of clothes. I got rid of my big clothes and got out my smaller clothes that I can finally wear! My next step is getting rid of tons of stuff in my office! I cleaned it recently but right now I am in the middle of really being harsh about what I get rid of...2 boxes so far!

Looks like our terrible heatwave has broken (a bit).
Feels like 15 - 20 degrees cooler.
I spent the day at the public library - because of their air-conditioning.

The library was "packed" there were only about 3 empty seats in the whole place - it closed at 5:00 and when I went out side, much cooler and even some cloudy skies.
Wahoo!!!!

This weekend we are redecorating our master bedroom. Everything came out so we could put hardwood flooring in. It was kind of a last minute decision to do it this weekend (we have had the flooring sitting in our family room for about 8 months now!). We have the time off and since Hubby has a job interview out of state next week and we might be moving, it was time to get it done. Floor is in, today is painting. I'll be putting everything away on Monday. Time to really purge - we have way too many clothes and just "STUFF" that gets stuffed in the room so it doesn't clutter up the main parts of the house.

I see trips to the consignment shop and Goodwill in my future!

I am packing as well and getting rid of 2/3 of my belongings. This month is the craft closet, my Christmas decorations, and I'm going to probably tackle the garage (not sure how that will go but most of the stuff gets sold since we are moving into an apartment).

I can't believe how hot it is here in San Diego. About 105 degrees and very very humid.
I did manage to unpack my suitcase and will need to do some laundry.....but it is just too
darned hot to do much else.
I don't have AC, bit have 3 big fans going.......doesn't help.

Japan was really lovely and I saw so much.......but it was hot there too.
We did have air conditioned hotels and a big air conditioned bus.
I need to sort through my photos at some point. LOL
