Very true, Laura. It is really shocking how much people are paying to store things they simply can't give up.

Elaine, books are my downfall, too. I have learned to cull some out, even if it kills me. But I always seem to be picking up a few more. I think I need to apply Hank's method -- keep my favorites and let the others become someone else's favorite.

Cathy, I admire how dedicated you and your husband have been to the idea of not collecting too much. I admire your discipline!

Mark, I really understand. My books are exploding, and for years my solution was always to buy another bookcase. Now I really don't have any more space for shelves.

Hank, what a wonderful perspective! I love the idea of giving someone else something that will be their first choice

Susan, I understand completely. I love having being surrounded by books, too. And it sounds as if your husband needs to be surrounded by the things he loves, too. I'm sure you two will work that out. Hope you'll both be happy in the new home.

Art, what a good way to do it. Thanks to both you and Margaret. With just disposing of one item a day, I bet it doesn't feel like purging.

by Kris Neri at the Femmes Fatales I have a confession to make — I’ve started purging. No, I’m not confessing to forced barfing. What I’m trying to say is that I’ve begun shedding stuff. I’m building up bags and... Continue reading

Thank you, Mark. Too true.

by Kris Neri I’ve never been really big on New Year’s resolutions. Some years I’ve made them, some not. Rarely have I followed through with them, not right after the start of the new year anyway. When it comes to... Continue reading

What a sweet Christmas story! I'm sure Chelsea's going to love it.

Cathy, I envy you that perfect spot...sigh. It sounds lovely.

Kate, good for you for thinking about it, even though it was so hot. You weren't nuts, you were smart!

Anne, what a clever idea! We don't just decide where to put it based on our home designs, but on our family situations, too.

Donna, it sounds as if you have that perfect front window, but I don't envy you moving those boxes. My own decluttering has to start one of these days.

Elaine, we all make adaptions based on our pets' behaviors. We once had a cat who dragged boxes out from under it so she could attack the bows, and a dog that would rip off the wrapping paper. I can't imagine hearing the tree coming down at 4 am!

Catroina, that sounds like the most divine spot! How wonderful it must be to see your tree from so many locations.

Mark, good for you for thinking about tree placement when looking at condos. Your two trees on opposite sides of the slider sound heavenly!

Cathy, I agree. I also gave a shout out in my positive review to a new employee who went above and beyond for us. It's true that surveys do give us the opportunity to reward especially good service.

Charlaine, it sounds as if the upper management in that hotel cared how their guests were treated and wanted them to feel good about staying there. The difference was that I didn't hear from anyone, which told me, as I'd already concluded, that they didn't care.
