    ***OMG THIS IS SO MEEE!! I keep creating new "control journals" and or starting new calendars b/c I can't ever find anything I truly like, so I settle only to find something better later and start over... and by starting over so much, I never make any progress... or I can't find anything even remotely close to what I want and consider making my own line of organization tools... but that costs money I don't have.

    with me it is house projects, so that there is not actually any room in the house except the guest room and my daughter's that is totally done. Now, no one except me, and of course DH and DS, know this or could even tell. DS's room I don't like the drapes and I need to hang a few things, but we have been in this house for 8 years.

    My son's and daughter's rooms are done. Bathrooms are both done. Other rooms are still a work in progress as the ceilings have never been painted and now the walls need repained, with the exception of the bedroom, which has had NO surfaces painted and as such, now needs to be retextured b/c furniture/bodies have rubbed it off. We've been in our house for almost 6 years.

    True, when my father went on, I found my favourite photo of him, got it blown up, framed and hung, apart from a few little things that was about it really, didn't want to clutter the house with stuff that might have had sentimental value to him, but was worthless to me, memories are worth more!

    I understand. I have dresser drawers full of things that my in-laws saved of their family. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the stuff, and they have both passed. Luckily, right now I have the space to spare. When I don't DH will have some decisions to make. It is an interesting mind exercise though, what will I save of my parent's stuff. Photos most likely, I will just scan and put them on discs. What will my children save of mine?

    I've never had an attachment to "things". My sisters are all the exact opposite. I had a beautiful teapot that was my Grammies. It sat on a shelf and got dusty and didn't mean anything to me so I gave it to my sis who cherishes it! So - clutter is not a problem I my house.

    dust - yes.

    my motivation

    Things I choose to let go:

    All grains - including rice
    Refined sugars
    Legumes - including peanut butter
    Nuts and nut butters
    Alcohol and soda
    Chocolate
    Acidic foods, such as pineapple and tomato
    Coffee and tea
    Eggs
    Curry
    White potato
    Dairy - including butter

    I'm choosing to do this......... I don't HAVE to.

    I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.

    I love coming back to find that you are still searching, striving, on a quest for better. I love knowing that their is a kindred spirit out there, even if we are both bat shit.

    I have a few things that were my grandmas and a can of rocks I got from my grandpa. They hold special meaning but I agree, it has to hold sentimental value to YOU, then it has value.
