I started cleaning out my desk drawers today trying to make room for all the things I am working on for my genealogy and photo club.

This last few days I have been working on de-cluttering my studio. It is a joy to walk in places where I had stuff before.

No Marie Kondo for me. She says to do it all at once. I don't have that long of an attention span! Plus I need some smaller wins to feel productive.

Wow. I am in Colorado at my son's house. A storm was coming through and he insisted we park our car in the garage because he didn't want us to suffer hail damage. I never actually realized how bad it can be.

I'm so glad your insurance is covering your roof. That is an expensive repair.

I had to laugh about you getting busted. My house got a really quick clean before we left but oh my goodness the office and studio are awful.

I sort of got busted yesterday morning. Who knew that the insurance adjuster who was inspecting the roof for hail damage would have to come inside to look at the ceilings? Didn't occur to me that he would have to check for inside water damage. Duh. I had about 2 hours' time in-between when he called and when he showed up. A hidden camera would have picked up some really speedy de-cluttering going on! (Unfortunately, not near enough to not feel somewhat embarrassed!)

But luckily, I didn't have any damage inside. The roof suffered pretty bad hail damage while I was at the hospital with my aunt in May in another town. Since I was away for about a week, I didn't know about the storm until I saw new roofs being installed on 5 of my neighbors' houses. The adjuster told me he would be submitting paperwork to my home insurance company for a completely new roof.

Hope you're enjoying your trip!

I'm back at shuffling through paper clutter. (Took a break.)

shuffle verb (MOVE AROUND) [ T ] to move similar things from one position or place to another, often to give an appearance of activity when nothing useful is being done.

Ouch! Well, according to this definition in the Cambridge English Dictionary, I'm not really getting anything done. But surely I'm getting a little closer to my goal! Next time I'll choose a different word.

Wow! Way to go!
About all I'm doing these days is watering plants and trying to keep the yard from dying in this extreme heat.
But --- I finally got the trees professionally trimmed on Friday, and on Saturday I got all the leftover leaves and small limbs (that they missed hauling off) picked up and into the recycle bag. So since I haven't been working in the house or garage or a storage area, I'll just say that I sweated enough for that to count as major decluttering!

I am going to a summer barbecue today so I have very little time today to do any of my chores. I will however make a good start on putting all of the Fair items away. This will free up space in the studio and make me feel good.

That is a great idea & if it leads to de-cluttering 2 things, you're that much farther ahead. I'm still at it, at least most days. Put the donations in my trunk as soon as the box/bag is full so I can drop it off at the thrift store while I'm out.

After I posted that emoticon, I read today's message (July 31, 2019) on The Daily Motivator by Ralph Marston. It's titled "Important Work To Do." The first few lines are so meaningful for me, especially since I tend to lose focus these days and get sidetracked so easily.

I hope you'll have time to read it. This link will go to the current day's article, so you might have to search for it by the time you see this message.

Just make a promise to yourself that you will de-clutter for 15 minutes 3-4 times a week. You can do a lot in 15 minutes & it will lead to longer times on some days. You may find yourself doing it on unscheduled days.

I haven't accomplished much decluttering this week, either, Carol.

Sandy, that is quite an accomplishment to get all your cookbooks and other books out of the house. And a lot of bending, stooping, lifting, and carrying, to boot! Good for you!

Posted the end of the book purge in the chat thread. Glad that part's over. Now on to other areas.

I delivered the last 9 bags of books to the church library this morning. That left the cookbooks to deal with. I decided to list them on Freecycle. I made 9 posts, one for each bag of cookbooks & listed the names of the cookbooks in the ba. When I finished, I already had an answer from a lady who wants them all. She is picking them up 10-11 in the morning. Yay! I have a small stack of CASA books but the CASA office is taking them for loaners to CASAs for their CEUs. That leaves 3-4 bags to be dropped off at Goodwill. That's one complete major project FINISHED!!!

How did the cookbook purge go? I still have some favorites, but I'm sure I could get rid of some of mine, too. I mostly check online now when I want a special recipe.

I've slacked off for a couple of days but plan to get back to it tomorrow. Just trying to decide if I should stay in this back room or move to the kitchen & do the cookbooks next.

I'm still mainly focusing on paperwork, with a lot of distractions in-between. This morning I also decluttered another kitchen drawer. I've been saving jar lids for a craft, and that drawer had way too many in it. I threw away most of them and just saved a few. That's a BIG DEAL for me to use the words "threw away"!

I have a busy week with club activities both quilters and photographers. I will be glad to be done with this. A short trip to refresh the soul next week and then back to my yard, declutter, and most importantly my art!

"Just let me live in peace with my pieces." Love it!

I've been away from home during the days for the past three days. After my 11:30 appointment today I'm going to get back to my paperwork decluttering project.

I wouldn't call myself a hoarder but I do have a lot of stash that I find hard to part with. I know my DH doesn't get it but he need not worry... Sometimes I do remove an item or two from my stash but I soon add more to it. I can't even pick up a bird feather without thinking "I bet I can use this."

I doubt if anyone except another crafter would ever get it so I say, just let me live in peace with my pieces.

I think it's great that you'll be able to donate some of your unused materials to help an organization raise funds. Ever since I jumped on the mixed media bandwagon and started using recycled materials for many of my projects, I'm not sure that anyone else besides me would find value in what I would donate!

My oldest daughter was here two weeks ago (hard to believe it's been that long ago!), and she decided she needed to "help" me purge some things. This was after I THOUGHT I had already purged and sorted, and I had a lot of boxes and bins filled with my precious stashes of interesting papers, maps, cards, ephemera and found items that will be great for crafts. Not being a crafter, she absolutely could NOT understand why I would want to keep what I was keeping.

I can see why it was distressing to her, but it's still hard for me to part with what I see as perfectly good art supplies. Mentally, I know I will never live long enough to use up my stash, but emotionally, I am still not ready to throw things away that I have selectively saved. I see value in them, and she doesn't. And pragmatically, I can understand why my daughter is concerned -- because someday, as trustee of my belongings after I pass away, she's going to have to deal with this house of "treasures"! HaHa!

And then realistically, I can see that day by day I'm slipping into becoming a full-fledged hoarder. Robert Genn called himself "a chronic disposophobiac." I love that term! Here is his blog from April 8, 2011, that was republished today. He's specifically talking about finished works of art, not art supplies, but there are many good takeaways from his article. And I can relate to this statement of his, too: "Sometimes I like to just sit in there amid my stuff. It feels good all ’round."

Good for you! There are so many things that we don't use that can go to new homes -- and they are very much appreciated, I'm sure!

I've gotten rid of a ton of things lately. I've given some to people who could use them such as a bunch of books on working with children that have gone to a middle school counselor just returning to work (they are the ones she picked out). Some were listed on Freecycle; have more going that way today. Some headed for the Goodwill. Threw a few things away, but most just needed new homes.

The good news is that I did get the guest room totally cleaned out before my daughter came, and I took most of the sesonal items to my storage unit.
The not-so-good news is that there was no way for me to finish clearing out some of the boxes in the living room area. I decided that I wasn't going to get upset about it, and that there wasn't any sense in trying to hide anything from my own daughter! We had a wonderful visit, and I'll get back to my decluttering project soon.

I've been out of town again this week (aunt was in the hospital and now in skilled nursing/rehab) so I haven't had time to make a dent like I wanted to. My daughter is coming at the end of the month for my grandson's graduation, and I absolutely have to have a pathway cleared to the guest room!

For Lent, instead of giving up a certain food or something, I chose something (quite a few things) every day to donate, such as raiding my closet of clothes. I have reached atleast 200 items so far. So, I did some major de-cluttering.

Then, I just happened to be blessed yesterday also. Get this! A friend gave me and the roommates garbage bags of nice clothes for we gals to keep! I now have "new" oxfords, t-shirts, etc.

With the de-cluttering, i had room for all of the "new" clothes! Some of the "new" clothes were mens' shirts, but hey, beggars cannot be choosers. People are not going to know the difference.

Have a blessed day.

I'll be working on organizing bills today, as well as searching for some paperwork that my sister needs to file my aunt's income tax. We're missing a few papers we should have received. Then I need to find a place to store some boxes that I brought back from her house when I cleared it out last week.

As for decluttering, I am doing 40 Items for Lent, where I give up 1 item each of the 40 days and give the items to a worthy cause
