How did you do with the first day of the challenge? Did you find a bunch of stuff to get rid of? Which room did you tackle first? Find anything amusing? One of the things I finally started to get on top of this spring was my writing files of clippings, ideas, rough drafts, outlines etc. I’m talking about files of paperwork I collected during the pre-internet days.
Do you know what I did with with this pre-internet junk (because that’s really what it was)?
Burning Up the Past
Most of the piles of papers went into the fireplace. There was something really cathartic about about burning it all up. It was like letting go of the past and starting fresh.
Anything from your past you need to get rid of? Anything from your own pre-internet days that no longer has any earthly purpose?
Go get rid of it and then come tell us about it so we can celebrate with you!

Today I tackled the Learning Room! I organized Caroline’s paperwork and artwork for the past year. I took down all her artwork hanging on the wall and commissioned new artwork so we’ll have something nice on the walls before I have to take pictures for the Not Back to School Blog Hop in a few weeks. I sorted through piles of papers and pitched dozens and dozens of things we no longer needed. Hoping to finish up the rest of the clean out tomorrow! 🙂
