Good morning, Blog World! Yesterday I had an obsession.
What? Not a new thing, you might say. But this was one of those that wasn’t even slightly fun. A tedious chore, if you will.
I stared awhile at my desk/table, the long one that runs at right angles to my computer desk; the one that holds all manner of STUFF. Dolls, notebooks, decorative mugs, and a potpourri of old bills that cluttered up a large portion of the table. Not a pretty sight.
Then I looked beneath my computer and saw a pretty box that held more old bills. I thought: hmm, I could put all the more current stuff in here and set it on the table; then I could shred all the old stuff. The desk area would be cleaner.
So that’s what I did. Well, the part about taking out the old stuff to shred and putting the new stuff in the box.
Shredding is a lengthy task. First I had to empty the shredder….a chore for another day.
First thing today, I did my Monday Memes...then I stared at the shredder for awhile and then, finally, grabbed a trash bag and dumped it.
Next I grabbed a stack of the old bills and piled it next to the shredder.
Okay…now what? Well, I grabbed a mimosa and started shredding.
Here’s where I am now….
And I’ve reduced the shred pile down to this….
I’m pretty sure that one of my New Year’s resolutions will be to shred a little at a time, from the back of the box…and not wait until the paper mountain explodes. Yes, that would make sense.
I’m also wondering if I should go paperless….
What are your thoughts? Do you have a mountain of paper…a literal blizzard that you must hack away at from time to time? Or what works for you?
