Cleaning out #2

Hi to all my friends and family! :) I forgot all about the minimalism quest I am on until the other day. I have not been able to do much at all with cleaning out since I got burned. But I did do a little something yesterday, and I thought I would share it with you. :)

For a long time now I have been so anxious about mine and Jeremiah's paper work system. Yes, the dreaded paper work and filing. LOL! Anyway, we had papers galore, EVERYWHERE! And I'm not kidding about that. It was quite disturbing. Anyway, I told Jeremiah that we should go through all our paper work, and throw out what we really don't need. I keep so many papers for the "in case" scenario and that's how we get bogged down in papers. So we cleaned out all the paper work, only keeping old bills from this year, organizing our taxes from the past, creating files in our file box to keep everything neat and organized. Finally we went through the mountain of paper, and now only have one file box of important documents and papers. The picture below is what we threw away! Wow!

So that is all I have to show for now, but I will try and organize my kitchen next. That is the plan anyway. Hope you all are having a fantastic day! Take care!

A different angle at the "mountain". :)
