    @VeryHappy oh how we tried to donate them. I've been on phone, emailing, and going places in person. Genealogical societies, two kinds of libraries, historical society . . . nothing. :(

    Ours too. They have no idea what's in there until I'm a mile down the road!

    I had to take them for recycling. There were just too many of them, the only place for them in the house was in the dining area and in our entry. I was tempted to do a drop and run at Goodwill, but they told me they couldn't take them when I asked, and almost all the magazines had MIL's address label on them. We're still swamped with books, papers, and personal effects from MIL and I just can't midwife the disposition of everything beyond a few good-faith attempts. It's so crushing being surrounded by all the things she decided to amass and keep.

    @yauponredux - you’re off to a terrific start! I love to make lists and small daily goals. It feels so satisfying to make progress, even small amounts.Welcome and happy decluttering.

    I weeded through the drawers in my bedroom earlier in the week and tossed some stuff, while setting other things aside for donation. I need to tackle my closet before I take the donations. However, this afternoon the spirit moved me to tackle books (and I have many) since I will be near the library when I got for Wednesday's hair appointment. I pulled out about a sixth of my books to donate to the library for their semi-annual book sale. I'm sure I could shed more books and I will before I retire and move in about 2 years, but progress!

    I didn’t even get an entire bag, but I cleaned my side of the closet, and put many clothes I won’t wear until fall in a big bin. I am culling, slowly but surely. I’ve found it makes me feel better to try and find some things a new home before donating. My step daughter is much shorter than I am, so shirts that are short on me fit her well, for example.

    @2VU0609 way to make the most of the spirit having moved you! I know that there are many occasions when I am not doing the most urgent thing, but sometimes doing ANYTHING at all is a victory!
