    You’re doing a great job! It’s so difficult when one person keeps undoing the other person’s progress.

    Kept the space clear for several years till garage door broke (H doesn't like to pay people to fix stuff).

    What would happen if you just took it upon yourself to call someone?

    Purging a bunch of tops I don't wear. Bought some of them in moments I thought I'd wear something other than black or gray. :)

    @HouseChatte I have a boring black closet, lol. I've gotten into patterns on top, black on the bottom and then a light sweater.

    One giant bag of garbage and one giant bag to donate. My home office space looks so much better, I almost won't mind going in there.

    Just returned from a short ski trip which prompted me to drag the two bins of ski items we have into the house. Filled up most of a bag with things none of us will ever wear again. Once things are cleaned and ready to go back in, I will fold them MK style and (hopefully) they'll be much better organized.

    I was looking through my grown up coloring books. There are some that I will not color in again because I didn't love the pictures. Like a Charles Wysocki book. I did like two of them and that was enough. So, toss them or give them to a thrift store? There are plenty of pages left to color, but two or three have already been colored. I kind of think people who like to color might not care that the book isn't pristine but I don't know. So, donate or toss?

    Donate.

    DH buys "used" crossword puzzle books from eBay for just a couple of bucks. Usually one or two puzzles have been started but the rest of the book is fine.

    That is excellent news.

    I refer to this as the Tom Sawyer effect. (Remember when Tom started painting the white picket fence and then got everyone else to do it for him?)

    Boxed up enough Eileen Fisher pieces that I don't wear for their Renew program to be worth the postage. My drawers are breathing again.

    The friend who's hosting Passover seder tonight and I were texting and she asked if I had any colored cloth napkins she could borrow. That led me to open up my cabinet with all my table linens...I don't think I've sorted through everything in there since I've had an empty next. Definitely don't need 3 hanukah runners, cloths that no longer match my dining room since we changed the carpet, etc. Already have 1/2 bag to pass along and not even done yet.

    @swimcatsmom, huge congrats on getting your h to change his mindset and not only stop hindering but even supporting your efforts!!

    @collage1 -- Kudos... for me such things are hard to part with. I would remember the runners and the meals they decorated and think "one of my kids might want it...."
