    EJ This is amazing. I figure whatever helps is wonderful. Bravo to you, especially tackling the office. You will be so happy when it is clear and peaceful!! (Says she who has a desk that needs serious clearing and a dining room table,and I could go on.)

    Finally had something officially OUT of the house - sold the old kitchen table. Yay!!! Only 1 item, but a bit one.

    That's huge!
    I got rid of
    • monthly statements for last year from some accounts
    • 2012 tax return
    • a green vinyl bag that had cds in it that I found in my husband's junked up area, which I put into the central cd area.


    I also acquired two more wooden cd holder boxes at the Goodwill for the extra cds I have found, and now they will all be together in one place in the same kind of storage, visible and usable. Alsoa new pair of reading glasses, but like magic, arm broke off of another yesterday so that is an even trade.

    A few months ago, I asked my husband's family members if they wanted a chair my MIL had given us - had belonged to her MIL. The younger generation wasn't interested, but my BIL said he'd take it. He was in town Friday, so we handed it off to him. Yay - one less "family heirloom" to be responsible for. It was too delicate to sit in, so was basically a dust catcher.

    It's going to be interesting to figure out how to continue working on this goal when I doubt Goodwill will be taking any of the stuff I'm getting rid of at this point because of worries about COVID-19. Hmm.

    But today I went through the piles of paper on my dining room table, and it is now clear!

    Just one hour, but it felt good. New total: 21.5.

    Our Goodwill stores are closed but they still had hours for donation. Could vary greatly across the country.

    I believe they will continue to accept. The data is showing that the virus lives on inanimate objects up to 3 days. 24h on cardboard. It is also showing that UV light kills it. Oh for some glorious sunshine!
