'Self, this is a good pace for us.'In fact, the timing was perfect! I am (in New Zealand so we are...) on summer holiday and this is a great project to start in on as the year is about to approach. Fully energised and eager to get on with it, I joined in.
Week One: post some pictures of the clutter. Luckily I had already taken them at the end of last year. Done.
Week Two: make a plan. Rules for decluttering took a bit of effort but I eventually ended up with 10 that seem pretty good.
Week Three: start purging --WHAT? Already?? Jodi, You're kidding, right? Right?? Umm, ...Jodi?
She wasn't kidding. And to make matters worse, I can't help but notice a few of you are doing quite well getting on with the project. Rubbish bags filled and tied, free to a good home tables filled for picking through, shelves emptied, sorted, and (dare I say it?) dusted! Tsk, tsk. You kids are too much!
So the pressure's on.
I've got two days to go till I get the green light to drive in and dive in so I can try and keep up with you Keeners and Declutterers!
Despite all this ranting and raving, I am pretty excited to get in there and toss the things that don't pass Rules Test. My only worry is that I'm going to end up with a cereal box-sized pile of things that get tossed and end up hardly any further ahead. Fingers crossed.
