Today didn't go quite to plan, no time for last minute decluttering or cleaning but we did have a lovely day with my sister and nephew. I'm planning to get up and do some Yoga and meditation in the morning take a leisurely breakfast and then head out to the shops for some mags. Hopefully DH will keep the kids occupied while I so my yoga and then he is taking them out after lunch do I can spend a good few hours on my treasure map :

I'm feeling very successful on the decluttering. Since we are showing our house to sell, it's mostly cleared out and staged! We did put most of our stuff in storage, but I made sure to thin it out drastically and keep only what we truly loved or needed, and everything is clean and organized in storage. I feel really lucky that this process coincided with this time of year and today is my birthday too.

We do have some stuff to clear out in the garage...how much time do I have?

We are going to go out for magazines tonight IF my son gets a good nap this afternoon. Then we can work on maps tomorrow.

I need to get some supplies together and then we're ready!!!!

Happy New Moon, mamas!!!

Yeah! I finished up my decluttering today and I cleaned the house! My house looks and smells so great. I've got a truck load of stuff going to goodwill. Really makes me want to watch even more so what I buy and bring in to the house. I feel so much lighter and ready for a new beginning. This has been a great experience for me and I'm looking forward to it every year. And we haven't even started on the TMing yet! I'm on the East coast so I'm going to get my supplies and start working on my TM tomorrow. I'm so excited. I've got so many things going through my head right now. I few things I know but I'm hoping most of it will come to me tomorrow. Planning to smudge the house tomorrow, sit down with some wine and candles and meditation music and map away.

OMG I kept telling myself it was Sunday night at almost midnight (East coaster here) and I am SOOOO glad I came back on here! Whew. BUUUUT, that means all that decluttering I was going to do tomorrow, BEFORE new starts, is off track.
Tracy, can I still declutter during the start of new or should I just bag it and be glad for the decluttering I have done during the year?

my energy is SO LOW today. i have a headache that started yesterday evening, and i never get headaches...ow. i don't want to do much of anything except lay around, and my TM energy is like....non-existant. i was really excited but i feel so awful and low energy that it's feeling like it's going to be a chore!
i hope i wake up renewed tomorrow.

i didn't get much of a chance to declutter because of my class (i can barely eat or sleep or take care of ds ) but i did manage to get rid of some stuff. my house still looks like a sty. i've got "hot spots" (flylady's term) everywhere. but i've taken care of some stuff that has been laying around-- i got a new printer/scanner/fax thingy and i actually did set it up today, all but the fax part. i tend to way procrastinate about stuff like that until i can get someone else to do it for me : but i actually *did it myself* for a change.

i did megatons of laundry today cause ds wet my bed last night, including the super heavy quilt that my mom made, and it's king sized, so we had to get up and go to a laundromat for the heavy-duty washer and dryer so i've been doing laundry *all. day. long*. argh.

i am watching a friend's kid also, cause she has this moving fiasco going on-- she just showed up to pick her up. it's going to be way past ds's bedtime by the time i actually get to put him to bed. i so want to clean more, but i need to sleep early or i'll die

wish me energy tomorrow morning!

Very excited here, too. East coaster, as wel and waiting until tomorrow to get mags and supplies.

I'm curious about the de-cluttering after the new, too. We got a lot done this week, but still a bit to go.

Even that has made a difference, though. My DH (who is also mapping this year) has been out of work for almost 6 months. He has applied for tons of jobs and to 4 different law schools and hadn't heard anything back, on either front until this week. Now there are several job possibilities and he got an acceptance letter from a school today!

Can't wait until tomorrow!!!!

West coaster but I'm waiting until tomorrow as well since all of the stores here close at 9. I don't really feel like shopping during the last few minutes before closing. I'm feeling the crunch and am trying to get the last of the decluttering done. My goal is to get the upstairs half of my house done as they are the most neglected but places where I spend them most time. I just have the master bedroom left to do so it's going not too bad.

I've also started decluttering my body. It's not an issue with extra weight, but too much yeast. DS and I are on a yeast cleanse. I'm a sugar junkie so this is a huge change and a great challenge for me.

oh, i am sure you can do more decluttering, it's just that if you do manage it before new moon, it's much more powerful! i basically never stopped decluttering last year, and i'm sure there was a new boost of energy after each bout.

pamela-- vibes, momma! you will be infused with NEW energy tomorrow!

all my decluttering's been done for a while... planning a cleansing tonight after ds is in bed, and tomorrow is ds's bday... big family party that night, playing all day. (and me picking up something for my map somewhere along the way...)

anyone else secretly planning on checking to see how close to new moon tracy posts the new thread?

Vibes and Hugs and New Moon wishes to all!!!!!

I am so darn antsy!
I know I'll still be awake at midnight so I am thinking I might end up at a 24 hr store in a few hours for supplies. What holds me back is that if I wait for morning I can go to the bookstore and have a much bigger better variety of magazines to choose from....ugh but I am not a morning person I can't decide! I want to do mine before my son comes home tomorrow afternoon. Urg.

I am impatient.

One Hour to go.......


I am going out and having dinner with my family. I'm demanding a nice restaurant for New Moon.

When I come back I'll put up the thread.

I also need to buy a nice votive candle to begin the Moon.

I usually go for Guadalupe.

I will return. Have a beautiful Launch.

whoops ===wanted to get this in before I head out..

I'm in the same spot. I have a house with some clutter that I won't be able to clear out by new moon. I will probably tidy up and take care of some of it during new moon..but I won't dedicate my new moon to de-cluttering. I will just do it casually.

There will always be something to declutter at my home.... at least for now.. I am working on it u until the last minutes (which I guess is now!).
I am looking forward to tomorrow...my friends that I worked with last year are coming over to work on it again. I have had so many thoughts rush through my mind in the last few days about what I want my map to hold, but I have been trying to tell myself to be patient and let it all UNFOLD.
My home is feeling OPEN and I like that feeling.
Looking forward to the unfolding to happen in the next few days...

Have FUN everyone!

I am new to Treasure Mapping and must admit feeling very hesitant after my experiences with The Secret (not terrible just disheartening).

One question can our pictures be printed from the internet? I really don't have the funds to buy any mags until at least the 15th and even then I'd have to tap in to the grocery budget, something I owuld prefer not to do.

Hi Tracy, I've been following this thread avidly, and surprise! I have a question!

Last year I cut out the pictures for my TM but lost motivation and never displayed them, they have stayed in a baggie at the bottom of my sewing basket for a year. I just pulled them out (past midnight) and some of the images still appeal to me, not all of them by any means but some of the ones pertaining to my finances/home/career sections. I'm not planning on working on my TM until later today but if they still are appealing to me then can I reuse them?

If they still appeal to you than go for it.
