~So I have to get a handle on my keepsake boxes. I go into them for something a couple times a year but most of it is an emotional chain around my neck. I've spent hours on it today and only filled 3 bags. I didn't even reduce it by half yet.
I'm going to take a break from emotional stuff and go back to the neutral/useless stuff again for awhile. The emotional stuff is exhausting.
3 bags/boxes full of old cards/letters/trinkets
5 rubber stamps
microwave food cover
fondue pot(3 pc) with 8 forks
2 BBQ tools
16 metal skewers

~A tin, a dishtowel and 43 books.
After sorting through my books for the 20th time in 5 years, it occurred to me that the same information would be available to me online or at the library. Classic literature is available free for Kindle. I mean, I knew that before but the emotional attachment and history with my books kept making me feel I had to keep them. Not anymore!~

Okay, haven't flung anything since Monday, but it is the weekend and I have a list of things to get done, and with that list there will be a whole lot of flinging going on. :) My goal for this weekend is a min of 500, lets see if I can make it.

Another 30 items out the door. I am cleaning/reorganizing the kitchen and finding all sorts of knick-knacks that can go to thrift, as well as old cleaning products that I know I won't ever use, going into the trash. A few expired food products as well, unfortunately. :(
