    Threw 2 more albums out, only pulled a few pics to keep. I never really thought about the fact that I haven't looked at some of them in 30, or more, years. And haven't seen most of these people since high school.

    Part of decluttering is not buying things.... Today, I went to the teacher store and bought some things for my classroom. Then, I was tempted to go to TJMaxx or Target to keep shopping. I told myself "What's the point?"- for a quick thrill of buying some things I really don't need, I will just have to lug them home and find places in my clean apartment for the purchases. So, I just came home and will read instead.

    @NewLIFEstyle4ME I hope you're ok. I haven't seen any posts from you recently and I know how active you usually are. If you're on a trip or taking a break, then keep it going!! xo Thinking of you! <3

    @NewLIFESstyle4ME
    I think that the scale is up a bit because your cute socks are heavier than the dark ones, not because you gained wt of any kind :D

    I am back in my organizing mood! I don't call it "declutering" because every room in the house is in proper order (husband side of the office is an exception... :s ), but even when I do have order in my closet too, I needed to donate clothing items that I don't wear anymore. So I did that today.

    I found a second hand boutique that is very put together, clean and organized but is not near my house so I have to make a special trip. I get disappointed with places where the drop-off for donation is a mess. I feel that it is a disrespect to the people that brings the donations, even if the actual store where items are sold is in order. OK, call me weird and picky.

    This new boutique seem accept, and sell at a very discounted prices, clothing that are newer, seldom used, and of higher quality. The owner told me that they sell mostly to business people that need a variety of items and don't want to (or can't) spend a lot of money and to people that go back to the work force after a long hiatus. They don't get too many small or petite sizes items, so my donations were very appreciated. I think that they will be getting more business from me.

    Was getting ready to mop today, moving the little trash can, and other things out of the way. I moved the trash can into the tub instead. All the small cans will be added tonight, soaked overnight, and scrubbed tomorrow. Its been way too long!
