I started with office supplies because it was pretty straight forward.
I cleared the bed, gathered some boxes & put the timer on. I emptied 2 file drawers, cleared shelves, took things from the closet, piled everything on the bed & called Junior to help.
With everything in site, I easily separated things into piles: keep, sell, give/donate, garbage, & things that belong somewhere else.
Three hours and 4 glasses of water later I had to stop for the night.
The 'keep' is back in the drawers & shelves,
The 'belongs somethere else is back where it belongs
The 'donate' is in my car.
The 'garbage' is gone.
What is left is in a box for the next session.
I was going to buy staples, un;til I found 3 boxes at the abottom of the drawer
I found so many pens & markers that I didn't know I had. Won't need to buy for a long time.
Some of the items left have an emotional attachment, that I will use body dowsing to decide to keep or not. More on that next time.
