Happy New Year everyone!
First day of 2016.... who can tell me where 2015 went?
2016 is going to be a watershed year for me. Among other things, I've decided and committed to myself that this will be the "year of the purge". Time to de-clutter, organize and continue to prepare for my build, both in the shop and around our home.
We've got so much stuff around the house that we never use, or had great plans for when we bought or obtained it. As I continue to tidy and organize the shop I realize how much space I've actually got to work with.
The purge is not going to be an overnight process, but it IS a new (or at least better) way of thinking.
For example, taking a break from the shop clean-up today, we reorganized the home entertainment / media centre. The jumble of wires gathered behind are now consolidated and labelled. The dust-monsters have been banished.
We got rid of the old non-functional computer speakers we were using as a sound-bar and they are heading to the library scrap electronics fundraiser. Substituted in it's place we put a component stereo system we weren't using elsewhere. More shelf space for books and pictures, and the TV sounds awesome!
The key is to be ruthless. I think most everything I'm not using can find a home elsewhere. Sell, recycle, up-cycle, donate, or trash in that order. Simple rules to live by.
Yup.... 2016 is going to be great!
