Instead, I'm sharing a weight-loss story this week so you can celebrate with me. Because this past week Dave and I lost a ton - possibly two - of weight in paper.
|ready for the curb - yipee!|
It's part of our campaign to downsize and get rid of all the excess stuff in our lives.
Sure I didn't have to look at it, but just knowing it was there, hanging out in the basement, tucked away in file folders...it weighed me down.
Did you know you can experience great joy in shredding paper? If you haven't tried it, I greatly encourage you to give it a whirl.
Just don't shred the stuff you really need. Like those tax papers from the past seven years. Or any warranties or titles that go with the possessions God gave you. If you aren't sure what to keep and what to shred/recycle, here's a link to a helpful guideline. And you can always check with your accountant and/or lawyer to be sure.
|bye bye paper, hello to lighter living .|
And if you like, when you've shed the weight, take a picture and come back here with the link to it to let me know and we can celebrate the weight loss together.
