Day 3... 30 Day Challenge and stuff

January 3rd, 2010 at 09:25 pm

I am spending today cleaning out the office. I work from home... and I also share the office with the husband, and the kids when they need it.

It was getting bad in here. I've had a lot of down time in December, including almost three weeks of vacation. Tomorrow, I have to get back into working - so that means I need to clean off the desks, shred, shred, shred, and get organized.

I've had to empty my shredder 3 times already... there was a lot of stuff. Mostly financial - thankfully, I've gone to almost all online statements.

I've found 16 items to get rid of -- most of them being books. I usually try to sell them at a used book store, but some of these were already declined. So, I am thinking of dropping them off at my grandma's retirement community. I have many more where they come from... What can I say? I love to read!

The kids and the husband are out cleaning up the garage - moving stuff around and decluttering also.

Nice way to spend a Sunday! Smile

    Have you ever tried listing your books for giveaway on paperbackswap dot com or bookmooch dot com? On these sites, you list books that you don't want and trade for things you do want. It's pretty cool and my husband and I have used both to thin out our excess books and get a lot of books for nothing. The memberships are free and the only cost is packaging up an item and mailing it when someone requests it. Of course, there is always half.com. I have also heard other folks mention that cash4books dot net/ is good, but I have never used them. Good luck on your challenge. It sounds like you are well on your way!
