Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
Perhaps I need plastic bins that I can label by the decade. Mementos from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, etc. I have a bad habit of too many things sitting out on edges of shelves, making it difficult to dust, and I know that "less is more" - fewer objects out mean they are more noticeable, not lost in the clutter. If I started with boxes to determine how large of a bin is needed?

This is for things like notes I want to keep from previous jobs, documents, signs, photos, etc. Touchstones for projects I still intend to get around to.

I seem to be drifting this week; I think it's the waiting for the contractor bit. I can't be as productive because I don't want to open up projects just to pack it all up to move in a few days.

I did start working on a patch in the office (a spot next to a junction box where I needed to reach inside to move wires) and I'll finish the wallpaper today. Otherwise, I feel like I'm twiddling my thumbs.

Time to read a book.
