I just want to document that, although I never found time for a serious declutter project, I did toss several things throughout the month: an uncomfortable shirt I've never liked, lots and lots of paper, old summer clothes not worth saving until next year, rusted yard tools not worth cleaning.
I've started to inspect our kitchen stuff and replace items that are worn out enough to no longer work well. They still work ok, but I'm tired of just putting up with only ok. I bought a new double boiler for making Christmas fudge because the nonstick coating was scratched on the old one. I bought a new metal whisk and silicone spatulas, and threw out the old stained plastic ones. The handle broke off a coffee cup and I didn't even consider fixing it because we have plenty of cups.
I noticed when I took the crock pot to the family party that it is starting to look really bad. It still works fine, but it's embarrassing to put it on DSis's pretty kitchen counter. I'll start looking for a new one the same size and let the old one go.
Big plans for major decluttering in January. I'll release several boxes of papers when I turn over Treasurer's duties for my sewing group -- the permanent files that I'll turn over to the new person, and all the old records that can be shredded.
