Almost back on the wagon

August 15th, 2010 at 04:01 am

All in all, it's been a decent week.
I got paid for a freelance gig I did in February, and I put all of it-- $387-- to my IRA.

I also got a check for June freelance to the tune of $750. I have to pay my self-employment taxes, but will be making a transfer to the IRA later this week, after that chore is done. It feels nice to make some progress.

Also, made $5 on my online garage sale, and if the guy who is supposed to buy our old futon shows up tomorrow, we can add another $75 to that. So, $80 to the online yard sale, for a total of about $160. Not too shabby. The money will either go in the tiki fund or to the kids' extra college fund.

I dropped off three more boxes to the Goodwill. I'm thrilled to be clearing the house of more things we can easily do without. I do wonder if it will ever end, if we will ever live something remotely close to the clean, uncluttered life of my fantasy...

    We've been decluttering for a while now and it's a continuing process I believe, although we've gotten it down to the nub end that just needs monitoring as we're getting ready to sell our house. My house is looking very spare to me, but there is still a bit more that could go, although sterility is not my main goal. Just staying on top of the "one in, one out" rule may have to become a lifetime committment.

    Good luck w/your futon sale.

    I'm rather obsessed about - I envy it, yet am repelled by it all at the same time ... this may actually incite a major re-purging of my house ...
