I organized about 80% of the jewelry that I have gotten from my great aunts. (Imogene and Millie) I am putting them in containers labeled from them with their birthdates. Put the only 1 earrings in a baggie and then all the pairs. Broken stuff I put in a baggie. I know I know but for crafts you aren't going to find these beads or pieces like the 1 earring quality. Aunt Mil had lots of jewelry. Think I have 2 or 3 things to go thru yet.

Keeping items but getting rid of the sacks and some boxes they were in so some decluttering.

A different kind of decluttering - I have a small patch of empty wall space next to my bed because of the way the door to the crawl space is situated. I'm going to create a small "gallery wall" there using some photos that were displaced from FL and some new ones of places that I've enjoyed visiting.

This will declutter the floor they have been living on.

Went through the coat closet, hats, gloves and scarves with the family. DH pulled a couple jackets he no longer wears, found an old coat that was my moms, and DD and I pulled out several scarves we no longer wear or want. We still have a lot of hats and scarves but they were made by my dear MIL that we just cant part with. Plan is to start rotating them so they can be used.

Pulled a bunch of pillar candles from my china hutch cabinet, along with some wine glasses and other trinkets that are going in the donation bag.

Will pack what I have donated to the church fete. Hopefully clear up some space in the spare room.

A lot of stuff is leaving the house and going to people on the caravan so that is decluttering.

In working in my room the last couple days have thrown away about 2 trash bags of stuff. Mostly old papers not needed any longer, recipes I printed and will never try and then some old clothes.

Box started For Goodwill--- 3 shirts in it, zipper container items of different sizes, Easter grass, phone holder, phone cover, mitten clips and eyeglass case.
