Tales and Toys. It was great. We cleared out some big stuff and she got new (to her) toys that she will play with. I labeled 2 boxes: "Donation" and "Toys for Trade." A week later and not much has found its way to the boxes. There is just too much. I find it oppressive. I have a hard time concentrating. The magnitude is overwhelming.
Flylady says that you cannot clean clutter. You have to get rid of it. She is right.
Tonight, while again thinking about this issue, I decided to stop thinking and start doing. I was standing in front of the bookcase at the time. I was going to just do one shelf of the bookcase. I wound up doing the whole thing. I pulled 6 books to let go, 2 paid bills from 2008, a case for Christmas cartoon DVDs, and a goodbye card from when I left a job in 2004. I put away some lotion, cards, and bags to give away soap in. I checked the books at Cash4Books but they were not buying any. It took 6 min. The shelves are less full and the house is a few pounds lighter.
Maybe I can keep doing a little bit each day and blog about it? Go let go of something. You will feel better. Maybe I will feel better once I tackle the moat around the TV in the living room.
