Woohooo! Congrats to you, Artemisia! :partying_face:

It’s tough to get rid of special things - I know I’m terrible at it. I sold some of my old consoles but I couldn’t bear to get rid of the games themselves. It’s funny, what’s the point of games without a way to play them? But I still don’t want to let them go :sweat_smile:

You’re an inspiration - perhaps I’ll try to clean out at least some of them over the next few weeks! :witch_broom: :package: :sparkles:

My craft/witchy room is more organized. I can actually do work in there! :hugs: Next is my closet. Having ALS makes it quite difficult to get dressed. So I have to get rid of some of my smaller clothes. I have to wear a size bigger so it’s easier to get dressed. I also have to reorganize so everything is more accessible. I can’t stand up. So I’m making progress and have a plan for next project!

I successfully went through the part of my closet that I need to move the filing cabinet and got rid of 5 years worth if tax papers cause I don’t need to hold on to them anymore! I also got ride of another bag full of stuff for good will.
Also did some organizing and decluttering of the office closet yesterday. And started a pile of books to sell from my office.
I move out of one of my offices on Saturday.
I am feeling a bit more prepared.

Oh my!

I had spent 2 days in my room & then… somehow when others cleaned their things some landed in my room :woman_facepalming:

Between my room & my basement, they are the first places that need a good cleanup. Then I’m trying to do what I can in my yard, but with any of them, sometimes I need help or I completely over do it & shortly after I’m laid up.

We’ve made progress in the basement, the yard… kind of… my room though… needs a complete re-do from what I had gotten done in December.

Part of my massive de-cluttering. I haven’t finished my clothes closet or drawers but I inventoried 7 bags of clothes and purses that were donated today.

I also properly disposed a large trash bag full of boxes of 8-10 years expired but Unused/New medical supplies (syringes, IV sets, etc) from when I worked as a vet tech. The clinic changed owners and the new one cleared out all the still usable supplies so she could buy all new things. :woman_facepalming:

Well…I was making progress before the hospital but not so much since I’ve been home. It’s ok though. I was going to work on my closet to clear stuff out and make things more accessible to me but my son hasn’t had time to help me. My craft/witchy room was almost back together then I found some stuff to go through. I got rid of some stuff and fortunately it was all recyclable. But now I have to put the rest away! :rofl::crazy_face:

Good work!! Hope your son is able to help you soon. I find for me tidying and letting go of thing is a constant process or a cycle :cyclone:

I put a patio set up for sale. Suddenly, people were coming into my apartment, wanting to buy other furniture! I sold a loveseat made of metal that dug into the flooring, and promised I’d pay closer attention to what furniture was made of from now on so I don’t leave any more gouges in the flooring. Promises of sales to come were made and forgotten.

Then I started noticing furniture which was breaking- a joint here, a wheel there. I removed two large pieces. It felt like I was being prepped for a move.

All of a sudden, I got the new phone and internet, and everything came to a halt! Somebody changed their mind about my move. That’s fine: I had nowhere to go anyway.

The living room echoes. Most of the rest of the furniture is empty. My favorite items are still packed in two pieces of wheeled luggage and several plastic tubs. Some part of me wants to order pieces of furniture for comfort, and another part wants to use what I have until the office tells me my lease is ready to sign. It’s as if my decluttering were destructive in preparation for renovation.

I have no wish to replace everything I lost in this process. It seems as though I’m preparing myself for a new way of life. Though I’ve experienced so much and have moderate skill in using many tools, I don’t need the representations around me to hold my memory or keep my talents in active service.
