Partly-used containers of lip balm:
OK, I realize that six is not that many, numerically, but it looks to me like five more than I ought to have – especially since I am sure there are more lurking around someplace.
Rolls of exposed but undeveloped film:
There’s actually another one, also. I found the fifth hiding in a pile of blankets after taking this photo. These must all be from my poor-student phase of loving to take photos, but not always budgeting for the cost of development.
All souvenirs of one sort or another. All lovely, especially when wet. But perhaps I only needed one from each place….
Outdated road maps:
Boxes of notecards:
My problem here is that I end up loving a certain set of cards so much that when I get down to only a couple left, I stop using them. Bad!
Unfortunately, the bags pictured here…
I think I may not need any more bags.
However, we are definitely making progress! I took quite a large load of poor-fitting clothing and no-longer-needed items to a donation center just a couple of hours ago, along with two huge bags of cloth recycling. Hooray!
(Also – my apologies for the photos. I was concentrating on the de-cluttering task, and completely neglected useful things like, say, white balance. The photos were taken in different spots at different times this morning, which is why the carpet is a different color in almost every shot.)
