I just realized I didn't put this thread up on August 1, but then I also posted in the Monthly Minimums July 31 for August 1 so guess I am just a little behind this month.
My basket didn't get touched the last week and although it isn't overflowing, I still need to handle the items in there. I am going to keep plugging away at them -- some are things I want to sell -- and others just need something done with them once and for all. I have a 10 drawer rolling cart for my crafts and the top of it has become a dumping ground also. DH put a lot of papers in the shred box I told him I would handle for him and we have another box full of papers for the Humane Society. Basically these four spaces are all next to each other and make the office/sewing room look like a junk room. If I could get this taken care of in August I would be a happy camper.
newspapers--called Human Society and they don't need newspapers for 1-2 months. Not going to store them so bagged them up and took to recycle shed. Now I will also recycle the box they were in and have one less item to deal with in the office.
