    In the last week, I've gotten rid of three trash bags of papers, worn clothes, etc. from my daughers' bedrooms. This week I'm working on paper clutter in the office area. So far, it's been three grocery bags of paper. It feels good getting rid of it but the process itself, well, I could do without. LOL!

    I finished up doing the same thing last week with my kids too. Hard work but worth it.

    We did our attached garage early this summer. But the big garage - yikes!! Have a ton of childhood stuff (mine) I need to go through. I think will wait for winter when the spiders etc are dead.

    Why must there always be so much paper to go through. I think I am taking care of it daily and before I know it there is a huge basket full. Lots of it was the notes I made while planning Gospel Fest that I pulled from the binder I made for the person planning nest year. Emptied the basket.

    Two garbage bags of worn/broken items went out yesterday and today I have two more grocery bags of paper. I decided redo the file system and bill paying system. The file system is done. I am sorting through all the paper work in the office drawers and cabinets. Three cabinets and two drawers are done. I have two more drawers to sort through and a box of papers that have to filed into the new system.

    I feel like pulling my hair out while doing this. I just keep telling myself that it will be worth it.

    Got some empty ink cartridges out the door with Teigan for school and baggie of soda tabs they collect too.

    Got the filing all caught up for 2018 and lots of paper to trash from there. Have a few sacks of stuff to burn so not in the trash.

    Must declutter the fridge and freezers, do an inventory and use up or toss old stock in there.

    You guys are fantastic! I was hoping to get a LOT out of the house when DD went off to college and we sure did gets TONS out. Now I need her to come back and get the other half! :)

    I have several boxes loaded up because we have been clearing out FIL's house (he moved into a retirement home this summer). So I have HIS boxes in my mudroom PLUS the boxes of clothes that the kids have grown out of. I can barely fit myself in the mudroom. This all needs to go but we need to itemize it for tax deductions first (since it is too much not to). So its kinda backing up into the house right now. DH is on overtime this week so it is me and The Pile. (I have another pile in the Master and the Attic but the rest of the house is in good shape).

    For now the piles keep growing til I can get them out. Added 4 pairs of DS's pants last night -- he's grown out of them.

    Renewed contact today with the local women's shelter, dropped off some boxes, got their wishlist and told them to expect more. So now I kinda have a drop off schedule which will make all the difference.
    So: 3 boxes gone.
