Sorted out some major clutter spots. Reunited some sets. Always makes me happy.
Gave away some big toys today and sold a toy rack. Got a message later from the mom saying her 2 year old loves his new toys. Makes me happy to know they are in little playing hands now again.
For sorting, I have 2 garbage bags and 2 bins open and sort through one mixed stuff toy bin:
1 bag dedicated for landfill
1 bag dedicated for Goodwill
1 bin for sale
1 bin for keep
'Keep' has still plenty left, probably a quarter or third of what I go through.
Works like a charm. Not too attached to anything right now, so sorting goes quickly. I remember the mantra. I don't care who gave it to us. I think about if we used it in the last 6 months and will use it again.
Missed recycling on Tuesday. Would have had plenty of paper. Would have opened up a big space in the garbage instantly. I am still piling stuff on top of stuff to make my way through. Can't wait to see all the stuff gone, so I can start with sorting out paper soon.
I am very happy I made the decision to stretch this process over 30 days. I feel a little overwhelmed even I have plenty of time left. Initially I planned on conquering this on one weekend. No way.
Optimistic, curious, human bee.
