I noticed that we mostly concentrated on clothing and various household items, but in this 'paperless" time my focus is ridding myself of paper. Some tips that have worked for me. 1. My first stop after the mailbox is the recycling bins. Most mail doesn't even make it into the house. 2. Join https://www.catalogchoice.org and use it. It's amazing how much junk mail you can stop. Referring back to number 1. If it's a catalog that you don't want then send that information to Catalog Choice and then recycle. 3. Have your files set up to accept those items that you want or need to keep. 4. I have six bins of various colors (you may need more or less) where I keep paper items that I use often. Of course each bin is a different catagory. It works great. You're even allowed "need to file" and "need to finish' bins. 5. All newspapers and magazines have a time limit and are either recycled or passed on by that date. If you want to keep articles, you don't need the whole publication, just cut out your article and place it in the correct bin or file. This system has really helped me.

flgrandma, I totally agree. Most people don't realize how much space paper takes up in the house. Over the last 4 years, I have been purging the paper collected from a 25+ year small business, which led to the purging of personal paperwork as well. Moving from one state to another really brought it home, as moving companies charge by weight.

I was introduced to recycling in CA in the early 80's, and brought it back home with me. Newspapers go quickly. I send all magazines with my husband to his workplace so others can enjoy. Catalogues go into recycling same day.

I've set up folders on my computer to store digital files of bank and credit card statements, as well as any other tax related or important information. Whenever I have a an hour or so during the day, I'll open a drawer and purge. It's amazing how much is unneeded.

Spectacular makeover ... BRAVO ! I live in the Dallas metroplex & have been looking for a commercial painter who would paint kitchen cabinets, as well as furniture. Could you share the name of your painter or do you know someone who does commercial spray painting of furniture ?

It is so worth saving an old house...town homes & apartment blocks have their place but not in an old neighborhood like the Heights, the first 'suburb' of turn of the century Houston(and earlier). Thanks to people like Brie and Scott, whose house is absolutely gorgeous, the Heights is full of families with children now who have chosen to 'save' the old neighborhood. Well done!! As for the white...a tastefully done choice, Houston is very hot in the summer, and this house is bright, cool and cheerful all the year round. White reflects heat :)

P.S. I meant the 20th Century, not the 21st!

Maybe it's just me but I need a rail where I don't feel I'm gonna fall off! I like the idea of these transparent ones but too many are too scary!
