More decluttering notes

June 17th, 2008 at 02:47 pm

The night before last, I sorted through the bookcase shelf that holds all our travel guides and maps. I ended up with a nice big pile to recycle.

There were several guidebooks that were way out of date for places that we won't be returning to anytime soon. If we do, we'll just get new guidebooks (the free kind from the tourism boards).

There were guidebooks for places we go regularly, but we had the 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004 editions. I discarded all but the current ones.

Then last night, I went through a pile of papers on another shelf. I found 3 more travel guides, 2 of which were duplicates of ones I had dealt with the previous night.

Also in that pile were numerous magazines that were saved because I had articles published in them. I didn't toss them, because I still want them around, but I did decide that I no longer need to keep several copies of each, so those are out of here, too.

I'm going to keep chipping away at all the clutter. It is very stress-relieving to clean and organize and declutter. You should all give it a try.

    I am keeping a close eye on your daily entries, and hoping the same inspiration and motivation you've got will strike me soon!

    We're working on the dress clothes closet. There are things in there that we can't fit into nor are they going to be in style again for the next decade or two. Why are we keeping this stuff?????

    Decluttering can be fun. You create space and sometimes you find things you forgot about Smile

    Way to go! I could probably declutter my bathroom drawer. The girls rooms always need a good declutter. Oh, I know...my file cabinet. I opened it today and saw health insurance info from my husbands previous job.

    Keep up the good work.

    I love to declutter, but there are days when I fantasize that I was more artistic - able to create artworks (collage, scrap, letter box) out of all the crap that I pitch ... but then that means I have to save the pile for projects to wait for the time that I'd get a round tuit. Just as well I pitch. Big Grin Painted, clear walls are restful too.
