Project Cleanup has of necessity been on hold while I've been in Las Vegas covering CES. However, before I left town I did make one long-overdue investment that should help me sort out even more stuff and minimise clutter: a scanner.

Since the last Project Cleanup post, I've thrown out another 10 garbage bags of stuff (with some family assistance) and cleared everything unwanted from my garage. But the biggest step forward has been disposing of an unwanted (and space-consuming) weights bench courtesy of Freecycle.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
In the month since Project Cleanup started, I've made a fair bit of progress on reorganising my life. Sadly, the progress on actually getting the flooring replaced has been a lot slower.
It's been a week since my last Project Cleanup post. The silence isn't because I haven't been spending a fair chunk of each day continuing to sort through my goods; it's because I've reached that tedious stage between the initial excitement of getting into the task and the point where I can start doing substantial things like repainting or digitising or buying new furniture.
The first stage of Project Cleanup is going through my many possessions and working out which ones I should keep. And while there's pleasure to be had in rediscovering old treasures, there's even more pleasure to be had in chucking some of them out.
