Thank you all for your kind comments and encouragement from yesterday's post. I hope I didn't mislead you into thinking that we're miserably depressed about not making our May 31 deadline. As badly as we didn't want to pay another month of rent, in making that decision, a lot of burden has been lifted from our shoulders. We're a busy bunch, but we're a smiling bunch.
And in the meantime, I have continued to declutter and get rid of unloved and unuseful things around the house.
Universal remote brought from previous house.
Stacking system (always falling over, and not space efficient)
Kid's shoes (notice the odd number?!)
-- 3 shoes went into the trash,
-- green pair was given to 4's friend
Stack of magazines
Plastic sorting containers (I had good educational intentions for these, but never followed through)
More items from my closet
31 items out, 19 to go.
I've gotta admit -- I'm wondering what else I'm going to 'throw out.' God knows I haven't gone through each and every drawer, cupboard, and closet in this house. And God knows that we still have 'excess' coming out our nose, so I guess I'll just keep plugging away.
How about you? Done any purging or decluttering lately? You know you wanna!
