I totally hear you. I decided 100 items a month was a good personal goal. Keep up the good work everyone. Every thing is a little help!

today Tuesday, one pair of very worn out shoes in trash, one pair of very worn out slippers in trash

+ didn't realise it at the time but on Sat evening I went to put a drying rack by the curb, with the broken wheel scotch taped near from where it came off => thought someone would want to try and repair it & it would save me a call to arrange a specific day for collection  .... and it worked !

got inspired from my previous post => went to dust underbed storage boxes, switched some summer & winter items since I had to take the boxes out anyway& managed to find 20 items of my clothing which "are no longer me" ... so glad it's no longer so so difficult to part with clothing ....

 

it's in another "to donate bag" ... won't be able to drop both bags (the bag from 10 days ago !) before Friday am ....

 

must write a big post it & put it near the door so that I don't forget !!!

 

a harder task will now be tackle papers and piles of random stuff all stuffed in various container when I was in a hurry ....

 

stuff that was on the dining room table on the 12th ... has been sitting in a high pile on my computer chair since ... have been using various uncomfortable stools ever since .... this behavior of mine is ridiculous ....  I need to make time both physically and in my mental space/head to tackle those ...

am going to TRY and tackle that pile from March 20th this morning ...

Typically, I just cannot start NOW, I have to think of other stuff that calls for my attention first,

probably something to do with trying to work slowly through my mounting anxiety level ...
