I stayed up until 4 after typing about how I was a paper hound and guess what? I am proud 2 say that 2 desk trashcans full later, I got rid of a lot!!! I also cleaned off my French memo board above my desk and I took down all of the flyers and programs and ticket stubs. We have all of that craziness in one huge ziplock bag. I recycled countless cards and doo dads and even got out a cute unused photo album for babies to put in my friend’s welcome baby basket. So, I am stoked!!!
The big challenge for the weekend is the 6 vac bags/plastic containers of baby clothes. I hope I can at least eliminate one of them. I took a garbage bag of books and mugs and vases, etc to Goodwill today. I also now have a bag filled with dresses and outwear of my daughter’s that I am giving away tomorrow if my friend doesn’t get back to me by then. So, I feel so so accomplished!!!!!!!!
We are going to start collecting items for 2 huge scrapbooks and that will eliminate paper trail too as I go through some photo boxes and realize what is not important and what is. My daughter is so creative, so I can’t wait to see how the photos turn out. We started taking things off of her French memo board too, so it will have to be an expandable scrapbook for sure.
This is off of the subject, but I am on day 4 of my #21dayfix workouts again and I am finally stopping my cough. I feel the pieces of my life fitting together and my vision is clear. Now on to personal finance:) I know that many people are pumped at the beginning of a new year, but this is the first time that I have ever felt so motivated to really and truly make a change for the better. I don’t think there is any turning back for me at this point. Hope your day/year/week is going well for you!
