|Clutter management? How do you do it??????|
The first thing I noticed was that there were some random albums which I had apparently uploaded while I wasn't paying attention. I merged those into the correct existing albums and felt much more "organized" but still had no remaining space. I decided to look a little more closely.
|Just how many|

|picture are needed?|
Oddly enough, I saw a picture that appeared several times, so I deleted the extras. Then I found another, and another, and realized that I had an epidemic of duplicates. By the time I was done eliminating duplicates, I had freed 15% of my storage space!
I wondered if the 15% bloat was happening in other places in my life. I had no further to look than my bedroom; sure enough, my dresser was stacked with books, cards, and outdated mail. Outdated mail to the trash, cards to the memento drawer, and books to the library--I'll organize them later.
|No wonder the closet was|
When the Resident Dragon arrived home, he joined in the fun, and worked on his closet. He hates, hates, hates trying on clothes, but has recently lost nearly two shirt sizes in weight. It took two evenings, but we had a wonderful time culling out the too-big, and the ragged-out, and the never-will-wear-again items. It was like a shopping spree, but no money was required!
|Old catalogs, phone books, outdated|
mail were cluttering this cabinet!
Look at it now!
Just how much is enough?
Well, I certainly have more than enough. Of everything.
Hopefully, not for long.
What's happening with you?
