    The 3 cute rescue dogs sealed the deal). The 4lb Chi was so cute with huge ears and cuddled in my neck.

    Terry, that is decluttering at its finest-- a win win and a good deed and a burden lifted, all at once.

    Mountain, sometimes I sell stuff and sometimes I give it away depending on my mood. I have a woman bringing her dog to try on a dog life jacket today. They were expensive and I have 3 different sizes from when my friend owned a boat. I have found dog items easy to sell. I sold 5 sets of dog steps and a dog car seat.

    I was a little worried about the sisters because the motor home is 27 years old. They texted me to thank us for selling it cheap. They took it to a mechanic and only needs a few cheap fixes. My husband was sure it was fine. It made me feel good.

They loved it and we were asking 7 even though blue book was 10. They said they wished they could afford it but didnít have 7k. I asked what they could afford and they said 5500. I said sold and they were so happy. 1500 is a lot of money when you are poor and it felt good. They came back with the money a hour later. We threw in everything we had used in it because I am done camping.

    Reduced bags of old cassettes and cds from car and house to one container each from Bed Bath and beyond, so they fit neatly and don't fall over anymore. We still listen to both in car, so can't get rid of yet.

    It's really inspiring to hear what everybody's doing.

    I did 1.5 more hours in my office today and am down to 12 boxes of clutter.

    A co-worker mentioned he's moving and is desperate for boxes, and that inspired me to empty some for him. I'll have four to give him tomorrow.

    New total of hours: 16.

    I'm so glad I'm using some of this batch of 40 hours in my office at work. It had gotten pretty bad, and it feels so good to be devoting time to making my work space a nicer spot.

    I'm noticing that a lot of decluttering is about letting go of the past - old projects that you did or didn't finish, old interests that didn't really stick, and in the case of my office at school, old students and classes and class topics. It's very therapeutic in a way.

    Tybee: And I thought we were the last ones to relinquish our cassettes when we bought our "new" car in 2014!
    EJ: That is a great point, and I think activity that supports living in the now and looking to the future is definitely a plus.

    Rosa, I wish I had relinquished them--I still have about half but at least they are all contained now.
