I’m not also in the homestretch of Truly, Madly promotions. I have bookmarks, postcards, Valentine swag all over the place. I don’t have anywhere to store these sorts of things, which means I need to find a place, which means that whatever was living in that place needs a new home. It’s a vicious circle.
I did, however, finally shred all the household receipts from 2006 and 2007. Don’t ask why I still had them. I don’t even know. I suspect I need therapy. This year I’m determined—determined I tell you—not to keep receipts I don’t need. This also holds true for emails I don’t need. Over the weekend I finally cleaned out my inboxes. Each (I have three main ones, five all together) and got them under 20 emails each. It was painful to delete, and I had to be ruthless with my inner packrat, who wasn’t happy at all.
The good thing about the email cleanout was that I realized a form on my website wasn’t working. So, if you’ve sent me your snail mail address over the last couple of months, via the form on my website, please resend it to me. If you don’t get a confirmation that it went through, just send it to email@example.com. If you do, I promise you’ll get something in the mail from me—if I can find anything after the cleaning is through.
Anyone have a maid I can borrow--just for a day?
