Subject: RE: Declutter & Exercise - NOV````2012
I have a short shopping list and I think I can get to all of my stores without passing nearby a mall (thus avoiding any traffic jams).

I'm going to do a mix of online and local merchant shopping this year - I've gotten to where I bundle enough things in an Amazon order that I can get free shipping. They are charging tax now, but it looks like they only charge the state tax, not the local county or city part, so it is still a little less expensive, and I don't have to use the gas to drive to the store.

Laundry is about finished, and now that I've gone back to using that annoying little tweet on the dryer during the permanent press cycle, I can get things out in time to avoid having to do much ironing. I'm headed out to purchase a sweater dryer rack, that's something I've needed for ages. Now that I'm in the office more, I'm revamping the wardrobe to look a little more in place over there.

I've thrown out a couple of things that were so worn that I shouldn't even wear them at home, in case I forget and go somewhere to shop. A pair of gardening trousers that were patched and grubby, and some yard shoes that again, I have forgotten and worn off the property and been very embarrassed by. Sometimes it is best to retire them earlier rather than later. ;-D
