This morning I flipped my desk calendar over to a new month, a new year, and it hit me! 2008 is here. This is the year I’ve told the blog world (as if everyone on the blog world reads MY blog!) that I’m going to reduce my stash. There’s something about telling everyone you’re going to do something that makes me either want to make darned sure I do it or . . go back to bed and sleep til January 1, 2009.
I live by lists and spreadsheets. Because I use two computers, I can easily confuse myself with the document I need being on the laptop when I’m working on the desktop. I set up these spreadsheets on google to keep track of the fabric I buy and the fabric I use and I can simply sign on to my google account and access these documents from anywhere I might happen to be.
There’s something about keeping a list and telling everyone that helps keep me on track. So . . here you see it .. January 1 .. a nice, clean slate — nothing used, nothing added. Maybe I’ll post copies of my spreadsheets on the first of each month.
