Before I started I made sure I had an empty cardboard box for sorting things we need to keep and a garbage can for things we need to toss.
Here's today's stack of paper and cardboard for the recycling basket.
This is a box of tools that I collected from that little corner of the utility room. Two square feet of space had ALL these tools! There are nails, washers and things of that nature in the Altoid tins. That's my husband's work from earlier in the year.
