  1. It might be easier to do 30 to 1 instead of 1 to 30
    Usually there are more at the beginning

    We do this for workouts
    12 days of Christmas
    12 reps then 11 then 10 etc
    Of a series of workouts
    Situps arms etc.. then all of a sudden you’re at 5 reps and it’s easy peasy

  2. What do you suggest for really personal items, such as old pieces/stories written/ writing journals years old/crafts I’ve started/craft items saved- you never know… things that are personal of nature- not really Knick-knack type stuff, but other.

    1. That is a challenging one. I gave sculptures that I valued to others….and they decluttered and chucked them. Some were hundreds of dollars. It is tough to watch…sing the song, Let it Go !

      1. Tina Thrussell except clothing is a huge huge landfill issue… not ours but developing nations where all the crap clothes from the thrift shops bake them and dump them. The fashion industry is a major polluter. We constantly buy new styles and dump them at thrift shops while patting ourselves on the back. Buy few classic and quality and dump the flipping need for walk in closets.
        Will step off the soap box now…..

        1. Sherry Thrussell-Maligaspe I don’t constantly buy new fashions, nor pat myself on the back. I do understand the clothing issue, it’s usually when I go up and down in weight I have to replenish.

          1. Sherry Thrussell-Maligaspe yeah, when we were at Dad’s I saw a news piece in this. I do my best NOT to be a contributor! Rarely buy new myself. I buy at thrift stores where I take my gently used clothes when I’m done with them.

  3. I get stalled by the “maybe so and so would like this…” or “this would be great for ____”… In the end, I have big piles that wait forever, then in frustration, I finally just donate it all to the salvation army thrift store. So, this time I am going to go that route right away and spare myself a ton of running around.
