LilyFestre Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House (1682* d) RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House 14 Jan 18


Today I am working on one of the bookshelves that is 7 feet tall. I have only attempted to get through 2 shelves. One of those shelves was full of medical paperwork for when I was going through chemo. Tomorrow I celebrate 8 years of being cancer free and I have decided that I don't need that paperwork anymore. Looking through it makes me cry and there is no earthly reason why I need all that. I kept a few select books that were helpful, the book that Maggie made me (a treasured item), the video I made of my journey, a copy of the speech I have given when asked to be the speaker at a few Relays for Life, a Relay for Life calendar that has my and Jeremiah's photo in it along with a favorite quote and a book published by Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance that has my written story and photo. I did keep (and it has been tucked away for years now and NOT on the bookshelf) all the cards full of love that I received during that time.

I have also removed several books that just aren't being used here and I'd much rather have the space than the books. One shelf is binders of neatly organized and divided into categories.

It doesn't sound like much but it took some time and I dusted as I went through. Also, I have all my favorite books together on one spot.   Looks and feels good.
