So those of you that have joined me on the get rid of clutter/clean challenge for August, how are you doing? I am beginning in earnest this week and I already feel like I have been de cluttering because of all the construction in the house. When I put something back in it's place I make sure it is a clean place. But I am going to do all the living room drawers, cupboards and closets today, I will take a picture of all the junk I find .and a picture of all my clean spaces.
We went to visit daughter #2, it was a nice weekend. We stayed under budget. Went to a Brazilian Bistro there that was very good, but expensive. I thought it was a nice experience but I would not do it again. We got home last night and I have a boat load of things to get done today.
I have at least 5 big bags of donation and resell items in the garage and I and going to drop those off this morning. I also have to get 2 rolls of stamps and envelopes, get printing done and finish mailers. I ran out of envelopes and wanted to run some changes in paperwork by D#2 so I am mass mailing today. I used to have her do all the secretarial stuff, I did the grunt work. I am not really familiar with files and all the computer work that goes with this business. It is not that I couldn't do it. I just felt it was easier to let her do these things and I'd other things. But every time I get something done I feel so proud of myself. Please do not forget that I graduated in 1985 with a B.S. in Software Engineering. But this was before PC'S had come out and I just never slowed down enough to learn anything!!!!!!
We made about $150.00 at the yard sale. I feel it was a bust, but I am listing all of the large furniture items on craigslist. If they have not sold before the college starts they are going to donation. So we will see.
Well I had better get going as I have a long list today!
10. Set up August budget and pay bills( I did open the mail does that count?)
11. Clean out drawers, cupboards, closet in formal living room.
Out My Window: came home last night to 11 eggs in coop. I have to go haunt the neigbors.
Have a great and productive day!
