Declutter something that is collecting dust.

Eliminating items that required dusting was a big factor behind what got me reducing my belongings in the first place. Doing that immediately reduced the time it took to get through my weekly house cleaning task.

  1. We live in “dust haven.” I finally decided that I will just dust when I feel like it because I can dust at 10 AM and need to do it again at 4 PM. ONce a week is enough for me–if I think of it. Grin.

  2. Update on garage sale, I sold 27 items (out of 31) my kids/grandkids sold hundreds of items. Everything left was loaded and delivered to a donation site. Over all success!

    My daughter said next time i should come over and help them declutter so they would have more for the sale.

    • Wow, Calla! How great that your daughter wants you to come help her the next time. Pass it down to her and maybe she will pass it down to her kids. Don’t you just love it.?!

      • I do!
        Have been careful not to say anything, just lead by example. It has taken many years for it to happen, almost had given up hope. Lol
