Good riddance

January 30, 2012 | My Jottings

Seven more items have left the house this week as part of my effort to donate 365 things in 2012.

Michael and I owned income property off and on for years. Our last building was a big Victorian five-plex that Michael worked hard on, but we sold it when his Parkinson’s began to affect his energy levels.

I used to keep our income property records in these specially ordered books, and I found six of them in a desk drawer last week. They’re way past the seven year record retention time recommended by the I.R.S., so out they go.

And the little purple zippered wallet has never been used — that was donated to our local Goodwill.

The schnauzer on the couch stays, though.

    You’re plugging away at it too, Ember! 🙂
