I didn't realize I was such a pack rat. It was very difficult sorting through old files and other stashes of "treasures." I knew it was going to be difficult, but not this emotionally stressful!
I didn't feel the need to scan everything and save it digitally. I just needed to let it go. Here are files of past Smart Martha seminars that I combined into one photo and one Excel file with all of the information stored in all of these folders. I tried this for lots of other files--but when I could find the strength---I pitched as much as I could!
but yes, after lots of sorting and clever reductions, I finished.
Mother's Day is May 12th. If you don't get to see your mother, make it easy and send her something special, but not too hard on the budget. Books are a great go to--as are candles, kitchen towels, or something else unique and special to her. Here are suggestions from Amazon. This covers shipping, too, if you have Amazon prime. Put something in your cart, and mark you calendar to pay for it and ship it on the Wednesday or Thursday before. I often do this for birthdays of relatives I don't get to see. It doesn't really cost much more than a card. It just lets them know you are thinking of them.
