YAY!! Made progress with cleaning and de-cluttering today!!))
Thanks to all of you for the motivation, I started my daily routine by working only 90 minutes! Oh yes, I have a longggggggggggggggg way to go yet, but don't want to become overwhelmed and call it good, then not get back in the swing of things for weeks, so figured if I do a little at a time this will work out fine! Our city provides these black heavy duty trash bags that we receive twice per year, so decided to bring one in and see how long it would take to fill it up! I grabbed stacks of papers (junk mail with a few bills tucked in between) and started sorting. This was done sitting, so back was just fine. Next I took a bathroom break (LOL) but while in there noticed a handful of items we rarely use, so tossed them as well. When entering the kitchen for a glass of water my attention was drawn to the baker's rack that housed old cereal boxes, folded up empty paper bags that had been soiled (ICK!) and grabbed what I could to get rid of. In about an hour and a half my trash bag was full to the brim!!! I can't believe this much was accomplished in so little time! Had originally planned to devote maybe 15 minutes today, but got on a roll and was actually enjoying myself for a change! WOW!! It's unbelievable! Tomorrow is trash day, so knew I wouldn't have to store this stuff in the mudroom all week which was nice too. I'm not yet noticing any changes in the house, but will within a few days of sorting and dumping junk aka trash. Tomorrow I will tackle a hot spot in our house----the coffee table. If there's enough energy left after that, then next it will be the little table in our kitchen (another hot spot). Can't believe all of the crap that's in this house!! UGH!!!!!!
