Why don't I just burn the paper I am shredding?
Well it clogs up the fire I find. As per the waste people I can put the shredded paper in our organics bin:
So it may take a few weeks to get rid of all the bags but it's as good a place to get rid of it I think?
Got a lot more shredded on Saturday and got a couple of drawers cleaned out as well.
Have we been house hunting?
Yes and no. We know what subdivision (estate) we want to live in. We have been to many open houses so we have figured out what model home we like. However until we have a firm offer on our house we won't go house hunting in earnest. Now as this subdivision is for "Active Adults," I can safely say that there is always some houses up for sale due to people dying, going into retirement homes, just moving because, moving down south to the warmth or moving up north to their cottages.
At the moment there are a couple of houses on the market that we like, so we know we will find something. Within the next month the housing market will pick up, so we are expecting more houses to come on the market.
How does the decluttering challenge work?
All I am doing is trying to remove 25 things per week from the house. So that at the end of the year you will have 1300 less things in the house, whether it be clothing, books, Christmas Decorations and just stuff you don't use anymore.
I need to be more consistent in removing things that I don't use and one of my big things is magazines I have a habit of hoarding. Need to find a home for over 100 Prima Magazines; any ideas?
As it's freezing cold still it was a good day for a stew on Saturday. So I made Lentil Stew with garlic bread for supper. Click on this link for the recipe. Both Vegetarian and Vegan friendly.
I also managed to visit a few blogs on Saturday, hoping to visit many more today!!
