27 cubic feet

19 Apr

My survey of 50 years of accumulated personal files/papers….estimates 27 cubic feet….how low can we go?

“Eat the elephant one bite at a time.”

Left stack: scan and recycle. Right stack: straight to recycle.

I purchased a Brother ADS1500W portable scanner.  This was my break through!  Compact, desktop, less than three pounds, scans two sides @ a time, sends new pdf files wirelessly to my laptop.  LOVE IT!

Tone and shred!

Tone and shred!  Three bags full!

Are you done yet? Yawn.

“Are you done yet?”  Yawn…..NO.

15 inches cleared/reclaimed! WooHoo!

15 inches cleared/reclaimed of 108! WooHoo!

For folks who are numbers and task oriented, I believe it helps to depersonalize stuff with numbers and the base line helps to quickly access progress.

This project is on HOLD at the half way mark, since higher priorities have prevailed.

    If you can measure your paper reduction project in cubic feet, I guess I should measure my “yarn diet” success in ounces used up. Happy shredding!
