    lots to declutter but more for sale not throwing out. found a big bag full of bags of millet from our old cockatiel. would save the bags since they had little parts of millets and loose seed. empty for outside birds. was buried in broom closet. another place to declutter.

    basement declutter more garbage at the moment. lots of things forgotten. one bag of xmas cards found 2 more of pictures and cards to go though and condense. xmas decor to go thought and thin out.

    added to thrift store pile couple pictures frames sheet of twin sheets into recycling bunch of cards and unused worksheets. sad to say only kept one because said to my daughter me from dh parents just because if things go south can be proof. don't like to think this way but have to protect the familys interests.

    slowly but surely getting there.
