I Have Issues-NOT!
A year ago, I mentioned on this blog that I had "issues". As I said here, I said that I had magazine issues, not "issues" issues. Although most people will argue that I have "issues". Got that? Anyway, no more!
In my quest for organization (yeah, right. lol!), I was tired of looking at my "Leaning Tower of Pisa" made out of magazines. I toppled it down and put it in a box and carted it to the recycling bin. I still have a hard time believing I did this. It seems I have a addiction to paper and I am determined to get rid of what I can. I have designated January as "Paper De-clutter Month" and am going through books, magazines, catalogs, file cabinets and boxes weeding out the paper clutter. This is an area that I struggle with the most. I have no problem getting rid of clothes/household items/tools. But paper is something I have trouble with. I really think I need a shrink. :-/
Anyway, I am proud of the strides that I've made so far. I got rid of my magazines/catalogs. I got rid of an entire box of old greeting cards. (Then came across another. Oy!). I have an idea up my sleeve on what to do with those. So stayed tuned. And I am beginning to tackle some memorabilia. I watched a video on Two Peas In A Bucket on ideas to organize memorabilia that I am excited about.
So, enough about that. I need to roll my sleeves up and get back to work. Hope you can overcome any obstacles that come your way.
Thanks for looking in!
