The Shredder...........

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I have so much paper. I got rid of so much before my move to Massachusetts but I have no more space in any of my cabinets. So I ordered a good paper shredder and it arrived today. OMG, it is a lot of work. I have just filled two garbage bags with income tax returns from thee and a half years. Once I have gotten rid of the old ones, I can more the more recent ones to the box in the basement and reclaim my cabinets in my office. I am so looking forward to that.

I have reached that point in my life when I am parring down. It is both a happy and melancholy time. It certainly needs to happen and I am glad to finally have a tool that helps with this process.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Sheila,

We love our shredder, did you know you can use it as compost?  Like you we have pared down...and love the vacuum it has created to attract new adventures.  A

Sheila, I have been the proud owner of a shredder for well let's just say over a decade... and have been dropping off cases and cases of paper to my office and Diane's Office when they had "free shredding" days.... with that said I still have a lot to shred....Endre

Hi Endre. I have had one in the past but this one is better. I have one more year of taxes to do and then some shifing of the last seven years. After that I will rid myself of things I know I will never use again and then one day at a time. TY    Sheila

We have purged as we go and as we get rid of more it requires a trip to the shredding facility...a freeing activity !

Good for you, less is more in my book and I try to live as simple of a life as I can.  It seems like everything can be stored electronically these days, so not a huge need for paper copies.

I've been on a declutter binge for several days.  It has included quite a bit of shredding as well.

Sheila - shredders are good if you do it on a regular basis.  If you have mounds take to a shredding place or you will be forever and end up wearing it out.

Hello Sheila - I can understand the feelings of melancholy and joy occurring at the same time.  Go with the joy - it feels better.
