Week Eight: Saturday, July 4th : Freedom from clutter!
We didn't add any new concept or method to the simplification madness this past week, but kept on organizing drawer by drawer, room by room. Our pile for Goodwill keeps getting smaller and smaller each week, and now we'll have an even bigger stack of storage containers to donate. Joe finished up going through his 'memory' boxes so now those can also be stored away.
This week we are doing one thing from Kondo's book: unpacking and repacking our bags each day. We both bike commute, so who needs the extra weight of extra stuff? In my case, I had about 1,000 lip balms, about 2 lbs of loose change, and several pairs of headphones. WHY? So, I cleared out my bag, repacked with just what I needed for the day, and it is a bit lighter and more organized for the effort. And with that...off to work I go!
