Scanning and Shredding

I am currently working on downsizing the paperwork and photos in our home.

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!

We Went Van Camping

We successfully van camped, but didn’t get any photos of the van. :/

My daughter and I successfully van camped last week.

What is van camping?

Well, for me, it is when you wish you had a camper, but you decide that your minivan will do just fine for sleeping; because while you do have a tent, you don’t want to sleep on the ground.

The funny part is that I forgot to take pics of the van as a tent. For the record, it worked well, and we plan to do it again! I am not sure how all three of us would be able to make it work, but for two, it was lovely.

Here are some photos/comments:
