counting up!!!

June 20th, 2016 at 10:12 pm

So we probably got rid of around 200 sheets of art work and kids papers this weekend. Took pictures, scanned in and managed the kid's stuff. So with everything else I'm purging we're up to 633 items this year. It is eye opening. I know it sounds ridiculous but I don't count too many broken toys or clothes that are torn. But I do count stuff like all this paperwork that piles up. It's sort of thrilling secretly to be at 600+. I'm gleeful.

On a quick note I think DH has a job offer coming in tomorrow and crossing my fingers on the other two. This is way to nerve wracking.

I also pulled a muscle in my back or it's sciatica. Ughh. I have muscle relaxants and pain meds. Tell me this gets easier.

    I really enjoyed de-cluttering and 'right sizing' the stuff in our home following the categories laid out in 'life changing magic of tidying up.' There is a ton of info on You Tube, interviews with Marie Kondo, lists of categories and discussion galore. I finished the process May 2015 and now, more than a year later, just needs a teeny bit of maintenance. Most remarkable benefit was unrealized sums saved because it changes buying behavior

    Great job on the kids art!! Sorry for your back pain...I've had that before, it's a process to heal, but it does get better.

    I am a fan of Marie Kondo, too! I'm only 2/5 into the process, but the difference is amazing!

    I am one pound over my goal weight so it's terrifying. I was working out daily until now. UGGH.

    I am feeling a lot better about the amount of stuff we have.

    LAL I really hope your back gets better! On occasion I do my neck and only a few visits to the chiropractor fix it. Ugh. Not fun. Good luck!
