I have the next 3 days clear with no appointments, and im feeling pretty good, so im gonna try to make a dent in the laundry and also now that my knee is better, get some walking clothes together (shorts, socks, tshirts).
I understand! I have a niece who become upset if I buy something because I have so much stuff. But it is a great idea to donate.

Don't feel to had because I am the same way. I just bought some more stuff for my room and there is no room.

still haven't taken any of the bags away. The Dr changed up my thyroid meds so I'm hoping that will help with the awake and alert problem. I hate feeling this tired and blaah.

I completely understand! The heat is what drains my energy because of how hot it been. Even with the storms and rain.

My husband and I have been working on decluttering for about the past two months. I wouldn't say our house is at the level of a hoarder's, but there is definitely clutter we need to get rid of. We should be buying a new house in the next few months, so this will give us less to move.



Most weekends we focus on one area to not get overwhelmed. We don't have time during the week usually. We just had a five-day weekend for our national holidays, which gave us some time to really advance. My husband finally recognized that he has a bunch of papers accumulated from classes he took years ago, which he wasn't going to look at again. He got rid of three huge binders of them, which was good progress for him. He definitely can have a tough time throwing things out.


The bedroom closet is this weekend's goal.

I might get a new bed set and all I have the one mattresses from this old bed. Already the thought of getting rid of this mattress is already cause anxiety attack

We went through clothes over the weekend and got rid of some. My husband had a hard time with his sweaters for some reason and kept a few that I have never seen him wear. Still, we managed to fill a medium-sized garbage bag of things. I set it up next to the dumpster yesterday and it was gone this morning. People generally will take clothes you leave out like that and sell it at flea markets and such.


I still need to address the mess of shoes on the closet floor next. I'm thinking of buying a shoe organizer. I also think there are some things that need to be gone through on the upper shelf.

For a long time I had trouble donating clothes and now because of where I live they are making it harder to donate clothes. I try to think about it th a way if I can help out one homeless person who need clothes than I giving something out to the world that good.

Your doing better than me. I'm still struggling to get rid of something.

Thanks Buffy! I definitely know it's not easy. For me getting started was the worst part. I kept procrastinating.
