    I’m in Florida, expecting tropical storm type weather starting tonight. Fortunately, Dorian looks to be turning north, but that puts others in harm’s way, which is sad.
    While work is closed I am decluttering here at home. It is making me happy to eat properly (no filling up on shelf-stable sweets). We bought fruit and meat as usual. If the power goes out Wednesday, we switch to tuna in foil packets and grape tomatoes.
    I hit my step goal all weekend and today. Maybe not tomorrow in the storm but I can afford a rest day or two with just housework.
    I appreciate the motivation you all give me!

    Are you on Dorian's path? Dear Lord, I hope not, because that hurricane is a monster. Stay safe. <3

    I'm in North Carolina, on the east coast. Its coming at us, but should be less monstrous by then. Praying for those in the Bahamas, they're getting pummeled.

    PLEASE Keep us posted my friend and as always praying for you and your family and friends to be alright and not be afraid.
    {{{{{{{{ <3 o:) <3 LOVE and HUGS o:) <3 o:) }}}}}}}}}

    Thank you my friend. It won't get here till Thursday. My family, in Florida, seem to be out of the line of fire, so I'm not afraid anymore. I'll keep everyone posted. Thank you all! <3

    So GLAD to hear Snoo---here's one more {{{{ <3 HUG <3 }}}} just because!

    I love you my friend :)

    I'm glad you will most likely be safe during this monster storm! Thanks for the tomato idea, I'm stocking up too. :)

    <3 We've battened down the hatches and have everything as ready as we can. Dorian will be here tomorrow afternoon, but we are already getting some rain from it. Wind will pick up through the night, and we will probably lose power some time tomorrow. I'll check in with you all when I can. We are good here! <3

    We're fine! Lots of wind and rain, but we didn't even lose power! Prayers worked, thank you!

    Went through my clothing closet- decluttered and filled a garbage bag with clothes that don't bring me joy! I also threw away a garbage bag full of things not donate able.

    @RubyRed427

    Good job Ruby!

    I am getting ready to go on vacation in a week and yesterday I was going thru my clothes selecting what I was going to take, and I found things that I don't longer care for or that they don't fit me well anymore (and don't bring me joy by default...), and they are now in the donation bag.

    I also found T-shirts more suitable for the gym that for going out, so I ended saving in work-out clothing too. It was a win-win situation all around.

    RubyRed and Gisel, its that time of year! I was thinking that I need to go through my fall/winter clothes. Nice job ladies!

    @NewLIFEstyle4ME I'm happy dancing right along with you!

    BOOM and YAY Ruby and Gisel--super wonderful way of thinking, living and DOING--YAY again!
  • NewLIFEstyle4MENewLIFEstyle4ME Posts: 4,028Member Member Posts: 4,028Member Member
    Thanks to Ruby and Gisel, I'm going to redo my closet to put all the fall/winter-ish stuff in front and summer-ish stuff in back and just reorganize it completely--it's going to be a major N.E.A.T. exercising chore. PLUS, I've got a ton of ironing to do as well. So.... :/ :# o:) <3 o:)

    Good plan @NewLIFEstyle4ME!

    There are no cold winters where I live (S.California desert), so I don't need to be switching the order of my clothes according to the seasons. But I often check that all the clothes are good to wear and donate or trash things that are no longer needed.

    I do keep things that I don't wear too often, but I found out that sooner or later, I will start wearing them again. So going into my closet is just like going shopping again.

    RubyRed, Gisel, and NewLifestyle4me inspired me to go through all my pants. Tried them all on, got rid of a bunch, then added 2 dresses to the donate pile.

    @snoo61 Great job, and happy that we could inspire you and others to do some "closet cleaning and organization."
  • snoo61snoo61 Posts: 512Member Member Posts: 512Member Member
    I finally started to clean out a rolling storage cart. It has ten drawers that I have been using as junk drawers. I have been putting stuff in there for a long time. All of the drawers were stuffed. I cleaned and organized one draw at a time. I was able to clean and organize six of the ten drawers last night. Now I have them organized in separate drawers as office supplies, beauty supplies, first aid, tools and small notebooks. Another drawer I cleaned out but haven't decided yet what to put in there (any suggestions welcome). It only took me an hour and I ended up throwing a bunch of junk away. I'm going to tackle the other four drawers tonight.

    Nice job! I put all our card games/decks in a drawer I cleaned out.
