Project Simplify – Piles

Project Simplify - Piles

It’s Project Simplify time again, and this week we’re tackling piles.  I’ve told you before I am a piler, not an organizer (much to my husband’s chagrin).  But lately it’s gotten really bad, and our office has been the “put it in there, close the door, look at it later” room.  I’m actually tackling the office next week for the final round of Project Simplify (Week 4 is for that put-off project), so I thought I would get a head start by working on the multiple piles that have, well, piled up in there.

Ahhh, so much better.  Between my medical forms and Joe’s school stuff, I was drowning in paper.  Now I have a small manageable pile, and Joe’s papers have either been saved in the appropriate place or recycled.

I can breathe again.

And lucky for you, while I was cleaning up, I found a stack of books to give away (plus one that I already gave away but forgot to send…oops. Don’t worry Jennifer, your Chi Marathon book is now on it’s way to you!).

Books to give away

Which one should I give away first?

    It feels so great to be able to clean the clutter, doesn’t it? So freeing! Good job!

    I would LOVE to have the Eat Raw Eat Well book! I’m doing 90% raw & juicing as a way to help with fertility. We’ve tried everything medically besides invetro (due to expense) and are now going the homeopathic route. The only problem is I have no clue how to do raw “cooking” & our local library doesn’t have one book on it. So if u give that book away keep me in mind!!

    Hi Alyssa!!
    We moved and we don’t have that much clutter and it feels good!!! ( at least for now ) haha!!

    I’m Peruvian and I know how good and nutritions Quinoa is, of course i did not like it when i was little but i do now! So my vote goes for 500 Quinoa recipes or maybe the best things you can eat!
    We are expecting our first baby so now eating cleaner and healthier now it’s a much important step in our lives.
