I dropped off another bag of cloths yesterday and a big stuffed animal. I was surprised they took the stuffed animal as I know I would worry about lice and children. I know this stuffed animal was washed in hot water but still I myself wouldn't buy one at a resale store.

I felt for the women who separate everything - people bring in so much stuff that should have been thrown away in the first place (they just didn't have the heart to do it themselves).

My decluttering session on dd younger's stuff took a lot out of me (and I am trying to figure out why that it was so mentally and physically draining).

I still have the items that need to go into her closet at the bottom of the stairs.

I have to be careful as I want to finish the project so much that I can easily make the job overwhelming instead of doing 15 minutes at a time which wouldn't tax me. I think I will have to bring out the timer and force myself to quit the job.

Thanks Blessed for your encouragement.
I sorted card file and the purging process has begun on it.
I had to take the tall kit. trash bag out full of unnessary paper
crafting & used up stuff, notes not needed etc. Out to the trash can.
Been at it 1.5 hrs. Including phone call 30 min. To fix snafu from yesterday.
So that clutter is off my mind. As well. :mrgreen:
Letting go of that stress very helpful.
I am using disc. Bound planners so the ringed type note books were not being used for that, I have freed them
up for other projrpects and purposes now.

I have a couple more 15 min. Sessions to go.
Was hoping to sew today instead.

Working on some items to go in a laundry basket
I need to work on loading them up into tote bags and only handling it once.

Small bits of decluttering progress in the kitchen this morning.

Plastic dishes without lids and lids without containers - gone!
A few extra storage jars went, too.

Baking mix forgotten way in the back of a corner cupboard, old enough to start smelling bad - tossed the whole container. I hated to give up the container because it was Tupperware brand, but don't have time right now to deal with getting the odor out of the plastic.

Threw away almost a dozen bottles of spices, sugar sprinkles, food colors - again, no time right now to test whether or not they are still safe. If I need those ingredients in the future, it will be easy enough to buy new.

got junk picked up the broken up shed!
the stone stays as it would have cost 100 $ more.
I will slowly add it to the garbage if no one wants it.

No recycling pickup this week, so I'm glad I went to extra trouble last week and got a lot out of here.

It's out of order for focus, but I decided the pet food/pet stuff cabinet needed work, so I'm in the process of redoing that. Getting down on the floor and vacuuming in there today after declutter pared things down. Lol, how attractive I must look.
