    On Saturday I’m going to go through the paper files in our house and blitz them! I’m putting it down here so I commit to it

    And done! Now to list a bunch of spare stuff on marketplace and ebay and see what I can be rid of!

    I'm nervous about tomorrow, so I think my plan will be to turn on the radio and listen, and while I'm doing that I can work on redoing the main set of shelves in the pantry. They get used all the time so periodically it gets to be time for a straighten and put right, and it's time for that now.

    I came across these articles and I thought about this thread. Maybe somebody can relate to what is written and even get some ideas. I didn't read them to completion yet, but here they go:

    Recently I have started decluttering my life. I started with ridding it of unhealthy food and drink habits, and now I have been decluttering things around my house. It feels really good. With each area I declutter I feel like I can breathe a bit easier. My next projects include my Tupperware and pots and pans cabinets which are basically just a bunch of stuff thrown in several bottom cupboards, half of the stuff and most of which we don't even use, then there's the bookshelf, which is full of "maybe ill read it someday", honestly, someday is never going to happen. Time to do like the song says and "Let It Go!"

    Trying to do decluttering in hour segments so I don't get bogged down. Going through old files & shredding or recycling papers, then doing clothes. 1 1/2 bags of clothes so far to donate. Just doing winter clothes for now, then will do summer when I decide what I really like/need when it warms up. (I'm in Iowa, so definitely don't need summer things right now, lol)

    @Gisel2015 Thanks for the links. I like reading things like that.

    I like the way she explains things. Maybe you find it helpful too.

    I did the 365 day challenge on Home Solutions 101 a few years ago, and found that it helped me develop quick routines to stay on top of clutter. It does a daily 15 minute declutter, and over the year you tackle various areas in the home.
