    It has been a busy summer so far. I still tutor four mornings a week. I tutor ESL to both adults and children. It is volunteer work I do through the church. I also managed to teach a gentleman to drive Canadian style. He has his license and I am relieved I do not have to drive with him...

    What a day yesterday! I managed to achieve a lot. I was tutoring all morning. And on the way home came across a neighbor whose car was stuck in the snow and ice in the back alley. She had hit the ruts the wrong way and ended up in the snowbank, overshooting her garage. I tried to chip away...

    I have well over 300 CDs in this house. Most of them I inherited when my mom died. A lot of them I do not want to even listen to. I have been loading the ones I do want to listen to onto my laptop. And then listing them for sale online. So far no one has inquired about them. We will see...

    So the move to improving our retirement situation is two pronged: save money and earn money. Hubby does a great job on the second one. Not so great on the first. I do good on the first, but not so great on the second. It's either a recipe for disaster or a recipe for success. I am being...

    It's a windy, blowy, overcast day here on the prairies. Currently we're at a balmy 0*C. So nice to have warm weather again! Though with the wind chill it's -8*C. I am home with nothing to do really. A day for a nice break. I have been hooking rug, and planning menus for the trip to the...

    I was inspired by the other thread about decluttering and getting organized. I have decided that I pass a Goodwill 3times a week. I will stop there everytime I go to town and drop something off. It might only be on thing but by the end of the month that is 12 items out of the house and the end...

  10. Home Environment
    I have been saying forever I want to really declutter and organize my apartment and life. I'm tired of tripping over toys, boxes, dirty dishes, clothes, art stuff etc. I started working with the kids to put the toys back where they got them and dishes in the sick. But how do you really inforce...

    Hi everybody!!! I'm a newbie here, but I thought I would share the results of my efforts this year. I have decided to focus on one "big" project each month this year, mostly aimed at decluttering initially and then going back and doing decorating/painting/etc. later. For January, my project...

    I read this article and thought of the Frugal Villager declutterers (is that a word?) :scratch: I have to admit we have a LOT of clutter IMO. Learning to Love Clutter - Shelterpop
  13. General Chat
    Last weekend, the kids purged their rooms. And those bedrooms feel so much lighter ... and actually cleaner. So, this weekend, I started decluttering. Tonight I decided to donate some yarn I kinda-like-but-don't-really-love. It's sitting in the car, waiting for a donation drop off in the...
  14. Question and Answer
    Not sure if this is the right place for this, because there is probably no right answer. I've been reading these boards for awhile and it's just something I noticed. I noticed many FVers talk about decluttering and there's all those tallies on people's signatures of items they've gotten rid...
  15. Home Environment
    Sorry, but I have to brag because I have been trying to motivate myself to declutter and clean out my dresser and closet for about a month, and today I did it!:grwave: Two big bags to go to donation (in my building, if you leave something on the table in the laundry room, it is understood that...
  16. Question and Answer
    HELP! First of all, I hope I have this in the right place... My daughter has too much of everything. She is a world-class pack-rat. She saves everything. Feathers, buttons, clothing, toys, string. You name it, she has it. She's 6!!! Whenever I go into her room, I get this smothered feeling, like...

    :angel2: This old thing! I haven't used it in years! I should toss/donate this! :fuming: Weeeeelllll, you never know......what if THIS happened (insert absurd scenario here), or THOSE people (cousins who you haven't seen in 14 years) come over and I want to do/make...... :angel2: Now you...

    I have been wanting to buy a waffle maker and just kept putting it off. I'm trying to clean out our kitchen, because it's rather small and honestly we don't need 3 or 4 spatulas. In cleaning out one cabinet what did I find, A WAFFLE MAKER! A nice bit of frugal decluttering. Bwahahahaha!:mdance:
