Declutter Challenge!

This week has been all about purging! First we got the new refrigerator. That definitely had "clutter!", but I do have to tell you that since the decluttering challenge started in August, it wasn't that bad! Right now, though it is organized and that is a good feeling. Secondly, I purged paper this week. Shredded tons of paper and threw out paper from files and storage that was not needed. I am sorry that I don't have a picture of it, but it filled one of those LARGE black trash bags! I did go to take a picture of that last night (as it is going to recycle today) along with pics of my craft room but my batteries are dead!

Want to join in the challenge or see what others have been decluttering this week? Check over at The Organised Queen! Marcia always has great ideas about organization and decluttering!

A garbage bag full of shredded paper?! WOW! Way to go, girl! I have a pile to shred as well, but after the latest move (a year ago) I can't find the power cord to the shredder. So... I guess I need to just go purchase another one! Good job on the decluttering!

Thank you for your love and support. I always look forward to reading your comments; they are always so heart-felt. Thank you for brightening my life!

That was a lot of paper! I'm thinking of leaving most of my paper decluttering until later, as they don't take up as much room.

Oh, good job!

A garbage bag of paper is A LOT - give yourself a big pat on the back LOL

(my battery's charging now because I have TONS of pics to download)

I did some paper organizing the last week, too, but not as much as you. Great job! Congrats on your new refrigerator.
