I flunked clutter. I did try. Really, I did try for a few weeks. In fact, I gave away cook books that I now have "giver away remorse " over. I am slowly buying them back. Used from Amazon. I am hoping that the books have food stains on the pages to show that the books were used. I'd be comfortable with that. I read in the declutter book that my daughter sent me , that I should not fold my T shirts, but I should roll them and stand them upright , on end, in the drawer. Supposedly, you can fit more T's in the drawer this way. Not true. Maybe I don't know how to roll . When I go to wear one, it is too wrinkled to wear. Then I have to iron it. My life can be decluttered, but my ironing basket is getting fuller. I did clean out a lot of clothes and I am happy about this. As is Good Will. Maybe there is some redemption to this decluttering plan. My closet is still color coded,so maybe I did learn more than I think from this book. Now to get to the shoes that are cluttering up the floor of the closet. I don't think there was a section on shoes in the book. I'll start by matching the left shoe to the right shoe. That should do it.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
