Scanning and Shredding

ScanAndShredMemories
Finally working on minimalizing papers.

My daughter has successfully begun college! She’s doing great, and that makes this particular transition super easy on me. Thanks, sweetie!

I have been diving into a few projects of my own, while I have approximately four weeks of what the outside world would consider, “off.” One of these projects is to scan and shred items that have no reason to be taking up physical space in our home, anymore. Those “memories” of past years, and some boring documents, too.

The first few piles haven’t been bad, as they were boxes of documents that have moved from the last two homes without being opened. Kind of easy to know I don’t need these papers regularly. 🙂

Help: I am listening to The Minimalists podcast while doing this to keep me in the right frame of mind.

Note: I procrastinated starting this project, but have now reached a bit of a groove with it. With each box I empty, we gain more space in our apartment, and it is less that I need to clean around/dust. Woo hoo! Win, win!

  1. 😂So true. I totally do! Last two years I made picture books online for my daughters art when she freaked that I was swapping out frames. Like…tears flew forth instantly. Then I was able to only save current stuff in the frames and it never piles up.
