Susan -

That sounds delightful, to send them little gifts that are meaningful and long lasting!

I don't send any physical cards any more, I have become anti-mail in general. I think I've been deluged with it for too long. I do enjoy sending out books from my house, because it reduces my house clutter level. So that makes me happy!

It's great that you are organizing your world one step at a time! I'm sure it's very satisfying to get everything organized!

Today my son James is over for the weekend so I'm sitting with him while he plays computer games. My boyfriend is coming home with two binders. I'll post separate threads about each of the two projects I'm tackling - car notes and people notes!

Binders! I love binders. And I love organizing by category. I will have to read those threads.

-----

This week i am happy to say I finally got my gigantic mulch pile out of the driveway. It's only been sitting there for a year. That made me happy.

I also picked up my 1950s metal patio glider from the place I had secreted it and put it in the front yard with a small hibachi grille. The other night I made a small fire in it and sat there on the glider with dan to enjoy the fire. Very nice.

--------
Next organizing plan is to somehow remove the washer drum from its plastic casing to build the fire pit, move the garbage and recycling out from the lean to, and bring the patio stuff into the lean to. In an organized fashion, somehow. smile

I should break this all down too.

Dear Jilly -

That is awesome about the mulch and the glider! Your world is coming together!

One step at a time!

I am now putting together my auto binder.

Jilly, I also love binders for organizing anything that I need to look at on a semi-regular basis. I used to file everything in traditional files. Then a friend of mine (who is highly organized) mentioned binders. I started using them at work and it made life so much easier.

For things that I need to look at once a year or less, I prefer traditional files (or the recycle bin). But for anything I look at often, I love binders.

Susan, binders are so much fun! In my self esteem class we now have binders for it and i love it. We each have started bringing in funny or meaningful copies of stuff for us each to share and live in the binders (comics, sayings, artwork, handouts). So those things can be interspersed with the classwork. It makes everything more fun and pretty.

Binders are great! They can be powerful tools, customized in so many ways. And they are super easy to transport. Just talking about binders now makes me want to write an article about the many uses they have. Thanks all for the inspiration!

OK, today I got a lot of the scrap steel out of the driveway and from the lean-to. I filled my jeep with the metal and hope i will be able to sell that tomorrow. I still have another jeep load of steel, and a cart's full of aluminum cans.

I am very excited to get all the recyclables out from the lean to. I am excited to get the garbagey stuff out of my driveway, also. It looks really white trashy here from the road. I feel so much more settled and content when everything is clean and put in it's place.
