    I am going to bookmark EcoChallenge on  my computer so it will make it easier for me to check in each  day!

    I was able to sort through books, files and some photos. Lots of momenteum gained from this challenge.

    As I am purging . . . I am looking for a high school teacher in the Portland, Oregon area or  a nonprofit that would be interested in some West and East African clothes and art to use for educational purposes. Email me if you have ideas, elaine.cole16@pcc.edu

      Do you know about the Buy Nothing project? There are facebook groups for each neighborhood in Portland and they are large communities focused around sharing things, and maybe there would be a teacher interested!

    Looked up where I could test drive an electric car in my area.  I will need to make a special trip into Beaverton to do this.

    Kids went to a birthday party today and I asked them to get somethings they could pass on as a gift.  My son found some perfect books he knew his friend would like and my  daughter made an origami crane chain.  They are learning they  don't need to buy more stuff and a home made card and toys, books, clothes or other items passed on are just as good.
    My husband and I are doing some scanning today too.  A box awaits me to sort . . . .

    My goal is to purge and I have my next box ready and waiting in my home office when I get home tonight.  I have a date with the scanner tomorrow!!

    Trying to sort through one pile of stuff or papers each day of the challenge. Today it was a box of papers from college. I will start a scan pile now for the papers that are hard to let go. Handle papers once.

    Got up early and sorted one box of old trophies and plaques.  Need to call Metro Recycling 234-3000 to figure out what to do with the rest of stuff.

      I LOVE this recycling line - figured out what to do with old paint cans left in our garage!

    I have two boxes on my list to go through when I get home today.

    Took 4 piles to Goodwill on Sunday!
