Thanks for your encouragement! I wouldn't describe myself as a hoarder, but once in awhile I get distracted & things start to build up.

Just finished listening to the book, loved it, have started to listen again for continued motivation! Was sitting with my husband late last night at the kitchen island deep in discussion, when out of the blue, he said, "have I ever told you how much I hate that stuff there on the window sill?" It took me about 5 seconds to jump up, grab every item and every plant except the aloe (JUST in case) and ran to the trash can. Wiped off the sill, added my favorite little pitcher (an immediate warm memory for me of my 1960's childhood, no longer lost among the clutter!) and instantly felt 100% better! Thanks for helping me remember that less can be more!

Hi Gail! I am sorry I was out of touch for so long. But you will be happy to know that I was working on the program. I am almost finished and have learned a lot about myself. I will be writing about my discoveries and realizations in the coming weeks. Through this process I finally found the strength to make an important decision. It was not easy but it was right. More to come....

What did I throw out? The cat, of course!
Naw, only kidding. That's Temujin, my fierce warrior pal. If he had his way, I'd be throwing out a lot more.
I started in the bedroom today and finding lots. The bedroom has been a place to hid my junk from visitor's eyes. Besides clothing, I am getting rid of an old aquarium that does really make me feel bad. I wasn't so good about keeping those fish alive.

I have a question, When will the workbook be available?
i think your website needs a FAQ's section because I'm pretty tech savy and it confuzzles me.
I couldn't finish the my name is -------and I'm the one who--------- statement on my own so i posted it on facebook and waited for my friends to finish it. Some of my former H.S. students gave interesting answers

So true. As a matter of fact, my hubby spent ALL DAY today purging old files!

Thank you Gail for inspiration! I started chapter 1 and I love how it feels that you are speaking directly to the reader (me!). Today I begin in my jewelry box. I was looking for something on Sunday, it took me 20 minutes. The 40 years of accumulation of childhood, gifts, trendy purchases was burdensome. While it only counts as "one" thing it will make me feel so good when this task is completed!

Gail,

I'm stuck on my "My name is.....and I'm the one who..... " statement. Everything I think of seems to contrived, or not specific enough. Do you have any extra advice? I look forward to seeing you tomorrow at Hachette's big Throw Out 50 Things day!
