Good ideas Jan and Kara... I know it really helps me to team up too, and the music and boxing clothes items are excellent ideas too.

Pairing up for 15 mins. It works.

At this moment I am oplaying a CD I found of zumba music. OOOOH does is make my body move whilst de-hoarding oooooh yeah.

If I didn't do the 15 mins with Mare and Karl last Friday I probably would not of continued again on Sunday.

Encouragement help with a friend. Helps to focus the mind on one area. Music is a plus.

It is easier to work in teams.

I'd love to find someone nearby I could work with in my home. Someone to help me make decisions on what to keep and what to donate or dispose of.

With clothing, I try to keep a donation box on the floor in the closet. When I buy a new blouse or slacks, I have to put one of my old clothing items in the donation box. When that box is full, I take it in and make my donation.

I find it really helpful to team up with someone for 15 minute stints for doing a chore, picking things up, putting things away, cleaning, etc.

If I am here we can go to the chat area or just post, whichever is easier.

Even when no one is around I find that posting my goal and then my success can still work because I have it in black on white so to speak.

When I get up next time (from my chair that is) I will:

Put the groceries away.

Other tasks I need to do are:

Putting up the shower curtain including the rod and hooks.
Eat something (ugh).
Take the dog out periodically.
Put the new vacuum together.
Put down the new area rug!!! So happy I could get this today.
Hang up new blouses.
Unclog, with the stuff I bought to do it, the tub drain.
Look at the boxes and bags I have in the second bedroom.
Get someone to bring me the toaster oven microwave from the farm basement, hook it up, read the instructions.

I think that is enough and maybe too much to do in one day so I am not going to stress over it and just do what I honestly can.
