Paper Clutter

I’ve just opened the lid to this box in the spare room and I’m faced with paper from about 3 years ago (I think). There are similar boxes and piles around this room and probably other rooms (I haven’t delved into those corners yet).

So, the phase I’ve been working through over the past few weeks is ‘removing the trash’, so it should be quite easy to get through this box quickly. I have a shredder, a rubbish bag and a box for papers that I want to keep (the contents of which I will probably put back in here afterwards).

If I can work at a steady pace, I should get through this in around an hour. Maybe I’ll keep this blog in draft until then…

…One hour later, and I seem to have spread across the room as I keep finding things that the children might want to keep. They have been laughing at some of their drawings, written notes etc. So, I may be only half way through the box but I’m welcoming the interruptions and giggles. Never mind, I’ll probably finish the second half of the box whilst they are asleep tonight.

Until later…
