**the rubber gasket and glass I have no idea where they’re from. I found it while dusting the top of the bookcase. Weirdness.
I’m changing up filing method a bit. Because it’s near the end of January now and tax season will be upon me, I’m taking blocks of paper and filing it into four categories: Pets, Medical, Money, and Other. I’m able to get through larger stacks of paper that way, and I can specifically file the EOB’s and office visit and prescription receipts that I’ll need for taxes without getting bogged down in filing every little thing.
Getting bogged down is something I’m really, really good at.
I’ve changed my goal from pieces filed to time spent, and it seems to be working out. Set the timer, grab a stack, and go.
THE BONUS ROUND
There were a couple of definite wins this week:
I’m noting obvious gaps–places where I used to have stuff, but it’s all found new homes. That’s a really good feeling.
I set a room priority and am starting with the garage. I’m trying to make room for a filtration system I received for Christmas and have yet to have installed. I just have so much stuff that it makes it difficult to actually see the water tank. I cleared out two boxes from the garage, a box of notebooks that have gone into a bin in the office for later organization, and a box of dishes I inherited from my grandmother. I put the dishes in a new box (sans garage-dwelling roaches) in the kitchen for later organization.
Again, avoiding the bog-down.
It kinda feels like moving in. It certainly looks that way.
