    October was a good month for me. I had a sudden, unexplained surge of energy and cleaned a bunch of stuff out. There is a recycling business in the city close to here that recycles CDs and their cases, VHS tapes, audio tapes. I sent 4 bags of stuff there! I went through several cabinets and got rid of lots of picture frames. I went through my kids' pictures from Sears and school and sent some to each child and saved some for us. Got rid of tons of decorative/useful glass jars. Felt really good! Now I'm hoping for another surge of energy to come soon. It feels soooo good to get rid of stuff.

    Good for you, Cathy! I know you've said you have a hard time letting go of items related to your kids, so this sounds like a major accomplishment!

    Ooooh! Good work!
    Hoping for a random energy surge--maybe they're going around...

    Nice job, Cathy! I'm needing a surge - lol.

    I have been deleting 10 emails per day, more than I receive, and have cleared out pretty much everything I don't need to save.

    Sister and I spent the day at Mom's working in the cellar and we accomplished amazing things. We took out 10 - 12 bags of trash, and 4 small containers of Saver's donations. We neatened and reorganized all kinds of stuff. The cellar hasn't looked this good in decades!
    Right now Mom's whole house looks so good. I am excited because I think she will be really pleased when she gets home next week. Either that or she'll get a restraining order against us!

    Do you have a target number you want to get down to?
