Today I attacked the 8 bankers boxes of randomness under my desk. Two bankers boxes became all work papers, one box of things I need to either file or scan and shred. I was left with one box of random clutter that I can't quite decide what to do with, and one box of definitely useful clutter (clothespins, office supplies) that need to still find a home. I was able to trash about 65 items, and shred about 1 cubic foot of flat paper! It is exhausting to make all of those decisions to trash/shred!

Okay, I'm in. I'm usually on mothering on my phone, which for some reason will only let me enter as a guest. So I can lurk, but can't post. But I've been waiting to join this thread for a while.

One baby blanket that I finally finished (the baby is only 21 months old...) and sent out the door.

One package play food I accidentally ordered two of.
