The January Paper Purge continues! After pulling out all those Army files the only files that remained in the bottom of the filing cabinet were full of instruction manuals. That kind of looks like a lot, huh?

I went through each file and recycled all manuals for items we not longer have and ones that we will never, never need. I know how to use an alarm clock, don't you? There weren't a lot of extras, but enough that made it worth my ten minutes of time.
I have file folders within the hanging folders. I ended up consolidating some folders into one hanging file and was able to eliminate two hanging folders! Less that has to go back in the filing cabinet is a good thing.
How is everyone doing with January's decluttering challenge to be doing something towards your goal everyday? Do you feel it is manageable? Are you stuck or overwhelmed? Or maybe your are doing more than you expected?
The paper purge is going so well here that my husband brought his Army files back upstairs to work on again. This has me almost in a state of shock to see him motivated to help with that task. I'm doing the shredding, of course!
Do you keep instruction manuals? If you do, how do you store them? If you don't keep them, what is your thinking about tossing them?
