I agree, need to declutter this month as I Don't think November and December will get much done in that area.

That's my focus to complete nagging decluttering and last of the projects. Hasn't been bad as I am on the second round of the declutter. Always more to go. I may just focus on declutter rather than cleaning, as I don't have as many rooms as the HGP has in the schedule.

I did the top of my bedroom closet. There are 2 shelves, (I added one several years ago so much wasted space between shelf and ceiling.) I put the 11 pillows and the wrapped gifts on the shelves. And still had space for other things. Went through my jewelry and set aside the items I will donate to the holiday bazaar at the school I worked at. I have a few other things put aside too. I need to contact the PSO officers to see where I can drop them off. I also have fall center pieces to donate for the farm to table lunch if they want them. It’s leaving a little slower than I wish but it is leaving.

I went though my closet and found some clothes to donate and some that can get recycled.

Got a bag of trash (about 1/2 to 3/4 full) out of my bedroom. That room just can't seem to get cleaned. It is a MESS but should be able to work all day on it tomorrow----I think! I start to many projects at once!

Jaymee came and got a trash bag full of shoes and clothes from her room but still more to go and then we will need to get the bed and dresser out.

Everything I had put away to give the last few months is finally out of the house as they were for different family members and saw all of them last weekend.

Got another bag of trash out of bedroom. Going thru some papers that I know I won't do ---craft wise and some recipes.

Have a sack of some bingo games (4 games with 3 boxes of each) that I am thinking of sending with Teigan to see if they would be interested in them or not. (time, money, United States and Alphabet) All brand new still in plastic.

Went after my kitchen cabinets yesterday since my counters are backing up again. Set a timer for 15 minutes but spent 30. Much better! I have bags and bags of stuff lining up my hallway to go out the door. I have the hardest time with this part... actually getting it out the door. Electronics are the worst. I worry about any data that could still be on them. *bites nails*

Jaymee took a OVERSTUFFED garbage sack of Teigans clothes home. Still have the pajamas to go thru and jackets and a small section on top the doll house.

Took her queen size crazy quilt she made home too. Allen was to take it the other day but forgot it.

<Shaking head up and down> Yes, this is my situation often. It's a celebration for me when it actually makes it to the donation center.

I decluttered drawers in our family room. Some items made it to the donation pile. Others made it to the trash.

I delcuttered catalogs and papers in the living room. A bunch of paper went to the trash and a bag went to recycling bin.
