Spent all day sorting, organizing, thinking. Ran up and down and all across the house to reunite parts, put stuff in piles and boxes. Got an overview what needs to be done for the next 30 days. Felt really overwhelmed, but tried to think of taking tiny steps. I won't need to get it done in one day. I will give myself 30 days to go through and decide what should happen with all our stuff.
Today, I sorted through 4 book boxes and remembered my neighbors email more kids book would be needed for our little free library at the pond. I packed up a bag of books and went for a walk.
Energized and happy I found a worthy spot for some of our favorite, but outgrown kids books, I started making piles. I really didn't have much room to start with. It was very challenging at first to find room to even make piles, to come up with a system, piling stuff on top of piles, but once I got going, I opened up more space to store stuff and half way in I realized I accidentally sorted even more then planned. I only wanted to look at the toys today, so only the bins and right site of the garage.
I listened to a very funny comedy show and some upbeat music while organizing and our bunny kept me company.
I stacked boxes, got about 3 garbage bags full of broken, no need at all items and sorted some more items. Now, I can at least walk through the garage again. Yeah!
Except for a handful of books, I did not get rid of much yet today, but it already feels great. I can do this.
