Recycling Bucket...Here I Come!!!


Do you have a tucked away area in your home where the files of papers, booklets, pamplets, etc. tend to get all pile up and just sit.....for like forever?? Until one day you become ambitious enough to go through the stack and sort, re-file, or recycle. Well for me that day has arrived!!

We have a huge wooden chest in our attic that seems to just accumulated papers of all sorts...a mix of it all!! So I went in and grabbed a stack of file folders that were plum full, and went through everything in them. I found old health insurance books from before we had kiddies...Um...I guess out of sight out of mind, perhaps?? LOL LOL

So here is the pile I grabbed to go through......

And here is most of the pile.....yes, that's right shredded...and off to the recycling bin!!


I actually filled this can up three times!!! Still uncertain why I saved receipts for groceries from a few years ago???I think the return date is well past now...LOL LOL


Anyway, it feels great to have gone through as much as I did...and now that I am started....I am determined to get through the rest of the chest real soon!!

Lot more Tackles here!!

Great tackle! My kids love when I tackle papers. They love to shred them then play in them.

I started randomly going through some of my stuff and found lots of old utility bills. I shredded so much that I burned out my shredder and just finally got a new one!

Good for you for tackling it. I need to do it more often!

WTG! I had to buy a super duper shredder to handle all my papers.

Great job! Next week is the closet (as you'll see by my Wordless Wednesday picture!) LOL

I need a shredder badly. There is a filling cabinet here with papers dating to 1986! How much was your shredder?

SkyLaur....I think it was around $25 or so...on sale of course...LOL LOL I find that the real cheap ones do not last as long!!! I like to buy the 10 sheet at a time ones....makes it a bit easier to shread!!
