Spring Cleaning

What do you do with:

~ cards that people have sent you?

~ books, that you don't think you are gonna read.....but you never know, you might?

~ magazines. And don't tell me to pull out what I like because I already tried that and have discovered that it is much neater to keep them in their magazine state. I have tons of pulled out pages lying around.

WHAT DO YOU DO????? Help...................

I have a 3-ring binder filled with plastic page protectors that I can slip those loose pages into.

Cards? I throw them away. I know, it sounds insensitive, but I rarely go back and read old letters and cards that people have sent me. Books? The Attic sounds like a good place. :o)

As for magazines, I keep only the previous year, to pull out with the current ones each season. All others are trashed!
Cards...only the special ones for the children.
My friend, you must downsize. I am always amazed at how much I throw away/give away every time I clean. I think, "The last time I did this I thought I got everything!" It's amazing what you are able to let go of each time.
Thinking of Lyn...and her full trash cans. :)
(Oh - the library loves used books and magazines!)
