After my good start last week, I didn't get much more done. I was exhausted. I was so tired and sleepy every day, partly because I was not sleeping well at night, but not sure what else caused it. I was, and am not, sick. I think it was Wednesday last week that I did manage to take down several small boxes of craft things that I have not touched in years, other than to move the boxes from the old house to this one, and to put them on the laundry closet shelf. As you will see in the pictures, I am getting rid of more than 5 things, so I think that, even though I didn't get around to going through the boxes until yesterday (Monday), it qualifies for days 3, 4, and 5 last week.
I think I should have taken a picture of the boxes stacked on the kitchen chair next to the table, which sat there from Wednesday until yesterday! By then I was so sick of having them in the way, that I knew I had to do something with them immediately.
So here we go --
I have not counted the items, but they are more than 5 x 3 days, don't you think?
This week's declutter goals are to choose one room and work on it at least 15 minutes a day. That will be the laundry/back entry again since I have a long way to go in there. The project for the week is digital decluttering, such as organizing photos and cleaning out folders on the computer. I did some of that last week so have a head start on that. I already organized the photos so that I can find them quicker. And I have been working on deleting several hundred old emails already. But still have several hundred to go through yet. Some have TNT recipes from friends, or craft ideas, and household hints that I want to keep, so they go in separate folders so I don't have to wade through a thousand emails to find them again. Yes, I hoard email. LOL Part of the problem is that I don't take enough time to read them when they arrive - super procrastination. I should just do a mass delete without reading them when they are a couple years old, but I just can't bring myself to do that until I at least glance at them to make sure there are no recipes, etc. Recipes are another thing I hoard, but at least digital ones don't take up physical space! And they can be much easier to find back if I have them organized.
