With moving I think my house looks worse than it did before---LOL---have packed up 3 boxes of books to give away and have them in car to give to person on Sunday. Packed up 2 boxes of books last night that are going with us. This morning packed up a big box with the larger pictures in the house. I used my beach towels to wrap around the ones that needed protection so got them packed too. Some of my pictures are needlepoint and they did not need wrapping but will also cusion the others. Then packed up a box on plaques, kitchen pictures, and seasonal door hangers. All this we will move to my oldest son's house to store so we have room to pack more. I have been also getting rid of a lot of stuff as I go---but there is still a lot to pack---30+ years of accumulated stuff---what a chore!

Went through the front closet and bagged all coats we are not wearing that can still be worn. I have a 33-gallon bag FULL! Tonight I add some craft things for the church so I can drop them there tomorrow.

I cleaned out 2 vehicles that need to be junked. It's been such a runaround to find someone to tow them out and had to get the police involved in getting the proper paperwork, etc. They come on Monday! I'm also weeding out clothes - seasonal and all. Not quite done but I try to do at least 2 boxes a day.

The whole house is a nightmare because we had the carpets and furniture in 3 rooms. I'm sure it's going to take a week to get remotely back to normal.
But wow it looks good. And i'm using this chance to get rid of stuff.
My son is even sending some things away.

Working on clearing the floor of my spare bedroom that's cluttered with bags and boxes of 'stuff' and papers.

It's the one room that always seems to be the dumping ground and the one that causes the most embarrassment if someone stumbles into it!




If its going to be, its up to me!!

Still going through stored stuff at a minimum of 30 minutes per day - usually more! Bagging TONS for donating. I have WAY TOO MUCH stuff! I'm doing at least 3 loads of laundry a week on the discount day and weeding through that as it's done. I'm also going through the dishes weekly. I don't really use many - about a sinkful each week. I microwave a lot and rinse out what I use for cooking when it's done. Refillable water bottle.

I have a whole bunch of paperwork projects to do. I need to prepare for my doctor's visit tomorrow.I think that clearing through the medicine and doctor's papers would be paramount tonight. It seems like the brightest idea at the moment. I have been holding off a few days while my girlfriend's wedding festivities were wrapping up, so now would be the time!

Spent a couple hours ironing and prepping clothes to take to consignment. Today, they took 23 of the clothing items and 1 pair of shoes! I also picked up $42 from clothes that have sold.

Thinking of having a garage sale next weekend. Max, my dog, had to have hernia surgery and I'd love to pay for it by selling the clutter.

I love the idea of clutter free living. Cleaning clutter gives us freedon to live. Im not talking of being obsessive. we overweight people obsess enough part of the addictive behavior problem. but clearing clutter of the house, yard garage drawers gives us such a fresh outlook of having room to move about. having extra space for the new you to come and enjoy life.

Be life giving, edifiying,

encouraging.

Love the Lord Jesus Christ with all thy heart and soul and thy neighbor as thyself.

Since we all know there is clutter in many forms. I am trying to tie up things in a bad relationship. Hand back the key, square things away. Maybe then I can get to my house,back yard, even my purse. We shall see...

I'm going to the laundromat and while I'm sitting will be going through some info I got from the State Fair on issues I need to take care of - saves me MUCH time on the net and phone! Also going through the clothes as they come out of the dryer to see what will be kept and what will be donated. Guess that would be a closet decluttering!

Today I'm going to sort out and organise my paperwork so that everything is in one place. I need to work out a budget, too, which I've been dreading.

Feel the fear and do it anyway!

I want to take the old stuff no longer needed to the recycling centre, have lots of old magazines, too, which will free up space.

I went through books, clothes, kitchen stuff and all sorts of piles and notebooks and art supplies and sorted and cleaned. I organized my computer supplies and books. I got a new caddy for my sewing supplies and all the little boxes and bags are no more and are freed up for other uses. I used another new caddy for my medicine organization. My apartment is a ton more sane and so I am now onto organizing shower projects and more notebook projects and photo projects. I still have a way to go in the kitchen and a little more unearthing to do in the bedroom and I need a little shovel for the business desk which got loaded up this weekend but the road is begun. At least I am more optimistic about it!

Yesterday, I went through a drawer in my home office desk and threw away pens that didn't work. Amazing how good that feels.

Today, I went through a box at work threw away a bunch of JUNK. Tomorrow, more of the same.

I'm also going to put a sticky note with each pair of shoes that I own. As I wear them, I'll throw away the sticky. By the holiday season, I'll see what has not been worn and get rid of them. (It's gonna take some guts!!! I may need help!)
