eliminated about 10 inches of paper
OK, about 4 inches of it was catalogs (and 2 inches was the JCPenney catalog), so maybe that's cheating, but . . .
I spend a few hours going through all the stacks of paper in the bedroom--DH's and mine (paper, as well as bedroom). Filed, tossed, shredded.
There are a few left, and they're DH's, so I have to make him file them away today, so they don't start growing in the corner, like mold!
