2017 Things January 4, 2017Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

Today H— [her daughter] and I have been running around the house trying to meet our goal of getting rid of 2016 things this year…we’re almost there…
2016 things! Another way to approach the decluttering. The KonMari Method. The toss-one-thing-a-day method. Now the getting-rid-of-the-same-number-of-things-as-what-year-it-is method.
Could be fun to try, but you’d have to decide what “a thing” is.
For instance, if I got rid of all the paper I have that’s printed on one side that I’m keeping to run through my printer on the OTHER side when I’m printing out draft after draft of certain manuscripts, and if I counted each sheet as one thing, I’m pretty sure I’d be finished with the project when I tossed that pile. Or very nearly so.
And that wouldn’t be as satisfying as all that.
My friend says she used to keep a blog about this, but requests to see said blog have thus far gone unanswered.
