Following up on today's decluttering effort: I filled one big box of books to give away and another box of books to pack away upstairs. I struggle pretty hard giving away books (especially if I'm in the middle of a series). It isn't like I'd go back and re-read them, so why? At some point I'd like to really clear the books maintaining only my Stephen King collection (which is still quite a few books).
While I was still in the right mode (and already sneezing from kicking up dust) I even cleared off the stand in the kitchen that holds dog treats and other miscellaneous items. Everything is condensed down into fewer containers there and dusted. I even moved the stand and the potato/onion bin out to clean under them!
Now that I sit back down I remember what originally got me up and looking for something. Needless to say I didn't find it and that's a to do for another day.
