Thread Name: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Yesterday I did several loads of laundry - I used more bulky clothes during the cold spell but I didn't like doing chores that brought me in contact with moisture, it just makes you feel colder. There were a number of mid-layer garments (shirts or sweaters) that are now back in the closet, no longer lying on the trunk or chair in my room in case I decide I need something to take the chill off. The bedroom looks like it's had a makeover.

I need to do another donation run since the bin in the laundry room is filling. I find this a particularly useful way to clear stuff out of the house. Once I've decided an item will be donated it stays there, out of sight (the lid is opaque, the sides translucent), until I notice through the sides that the bin has filled up.

The discount grocery I visit had a good selection in the produce warehouse yesterday; I was out of poblano peppers in the freezer, they had nice salad greens, and I loaded up on several fruits. The trick now is to use these fresh items fast enough that they don't become compost contributions due to neglect.
