It’s all in the numbers …

Emily is here. We are purging and organizing and I am feeling a little battered, but I’m hanging in there. I’ve not seen Clean Sweep, but I’m feeling that what we are doing may well qualify. I know if I persevere I will feel so good and so FREE —

Emily

my new color bins — so pretty (and so clean) I’ve leave at that.

Let’s give away a copy of my book, shall we?
All week, every day (sometime before midnight) we are going to play a "numbers game" and the winner will get the book.

Since 9:00 am this morning, Emily and I have emptied many drawers.
Today’s winner will guess how many drawers (hint: not more than 50)

ok, guess — first person wins.

    Great job on getting organized!! It does feel so wonderful, doesn’t it?!?

  238. I guess 41.

  239. OK, just saw that my guess was taken (41). The only numbers not guessed were 1 and 2, and somehow I don’t think those fit the definition of “many” – unless they are really, really BIG drawers, with lots of compartments, which I suppose is possible.
    Anyway, happy organizing today!

  240. 44!

  241. after going threw and seeing what numbers were taken and seeing as only 2 numbers haven’t been picked, I’m going to go with 2. I know it’s more then that. But it’s exciting to have a unique number.

  242. Love the bins! How about 32?

  243. I’m going to go with 2. I went threw and that was one of 2 numbers not taken.

  244. I’ll say my age and guess 37?
