Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House

There are a number of practical decisions I've been trying to make lately that have only resulted in hand-wringing consideration of options. So I've begun delegating decisions I can't make quickly, to others. The first one involved our mattress, for which I identified 8 great options... which chased each other thru my head MOST unpleasantly. I delegated that one to Hardi, who decided instantly that we would choose from those options and implement one, together, once he gets here in July. BOOM!

The next one involved comforters soiled by the Horde. One narrow one stuffed with feathers, one nice twin (down), bought in... 1995... and pretty nasty. Wash? Have washed? Dry clean? Goodwill? Trash? BOOM! Bagged and on the way to trash night. That leaves one of those original 1995 twin down's, IN the now-dusty duvet cover I bought for it after my 2012 botched surgery (Keep!!! Wash cover!).

I don't need help thinking through options (a la Hoarders crews). I need people willing to DECIDE. (Like I happily delegated most of my wedding decisions when we decided on a 30 day engagement!) It's a LOVELY opportunity NOT to be in charge all the time!
