This month I was bound and determined to sift through my piles of paper clutter and try my best to get it under control. As I mentioned before, when it comes to "things", I do not really have a problem making a decision and purging and throwing away. But when it comes to paper, I am rather OCD about it. I'm always thinking that the minute I throw it away that I will need it. After cleaning out my small closet in our office/den, I came across a box on the very top shelf of receipts. What to do, what to do. Hey! How about shred them! So that is what I did. And some old bank statements that I have not looked at in five years. I keep everything we needed to file our income taxes with that years return, so I figure that anything else we can get online. So our file cabinet is a bit lighter and I may need a new shredder in the near future. And honey, you know that Sears receipt from 2008 that you will probably need? It's confetti. ;-) It feels good to have that chore most of the way done. Still have another drawer to go through. But it feels good with what I have done so far.
In the midst of my organizing blitz, I have had the urge to scrapbook. I have a couple of layouts planned and hope to do that over the weekend. Here is one that I completed a couple of weeks ago:
Well, better go and get back to work. Need to give my shredder another workout today. Then figure out how to better organize what I decided to keep.
Thanks for looking in! :-)
