Take time to organize and declutter

Take time to declutterClutter is the enemy at my house. Mail and papers pile up on me and I need to find a solution! Thankfully, our Home Neighborhood has great resources on Organizing from the Right Side of the Brain, Clutter Busting, and Unstuff(ing) Your Life.  One of their best insights is to give your “stuff” a home in your house – and if you can’t find a place for it consider tossing it out or recycling it.

Paper is one of those things that seems to multiply, but TARC Industries is having FREE Residential Shred Weeks once a month.  Take your papers, mail, and other recyclables to 1800 SW 42nd St in Topeka to be shredded for free October 17 – 21 between 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Other items TARC will accept for recycling:

You can find me at the Media Desk and helping people with their Interlibrary Loan requests. I love to talk (and learn more) about spinning, knitting, weaving, crochet and any other fiber arts you can mention. Need assistance with a pattern or technique? I might be able to help. I am currently reading (and being inspired by) An Everlasting Meal by Tamar Adler, The Circle by Dave Eggers, and Made from Scratch by Jenna Woginrich. Current projects: making special gifts for new babies, cooking new recipes, discovering old (but new-to-me) crochet stitches, and getting my floor loom warped.
