So, this post was from the beginning of last year, and I'm curious to see if I completed any of my 'random goals'.
I'm putting a couple other goals in a separate post, just some things
I'd thought about doing for a few years but never got around to doing.
Delete photos from computer: I keep all my pics. Even the blurry
ones. Why? Dunno, really. But every month I think I'll work on 20
folders (they're done by date) and get rid of the excess.
Nope! Didn't finish. But I did work on all of the folders in 2014, 2015, and 2016.
Catalog tea: We have a nice collection of tea. Ok, too much tea.
Mostly loose-leaf, and some of it getting older. So I want to go
through it, get an idea of what we have, throw out anything too old, and
clean that basket up a bit! (Yeah, only a basket.)
Success! Threw out way more tea than I wanted to, but given that almost all of it was way over a year old, needed to be done.
Get rid of almost-finished/needs fixing bag: I have a bag of knit
projects that either need to be blocked, fixed, ends woven in, etc. I
no longer consider a project finished if it isn't blocked/ends woven in,
but these are from before that.
Nope! But I did go through it, does that count?
4. Catalog inks: Got a lot of those, too, and it would be nice to know what we have without looking through them all.
Haha, totally forgot about the inks.
5. Clean up filing: Shred the old income tax papers and other things that have been piling up.
Sort of? Still need to shred stuff, but we did get a new filing cabinet and most of it's been filed away.
Put away needles: Uh, yeah, gotta get on that. I have a plastic
container where I put all my now-empty circulars, but they actually
belong in a receipt folder (one of the plastic ones from Walmart). I
need to 'file' them away properly.
Success! I have been putting them away all year.
7. Obviously, pare down the WIPs.
Success! I have fewer WIPs than I did last year.
No timelines here. I'm not that insane. Let's see what I can do this year.
I think I'll definitely continue to sort through my photos. I also want to actually tackle the 'needs finishing' bag and not just look through it. Still no timelines or pressure; I'll have enough going on in a few months!
