...I look for a natural partition point for breaking it up into manageable sizes. One of them is my own time: for instance, I may decide to allot two hours to accomplish whatever I can in a particular effort, and whatever gets done, gets done. Another is external constraints: if the garbage bin or the yard waste bin are full, it’s time to stop cleaning the garage or the yard for now. (It’s pretty easy to keep the garage from accumulating clutter faster than 1 bin per week. In some seasons, the yard is a bit more challenging.)

obsessivewoman and I filled both bins today and took a trip to the recycling center. I’m calling the day a success.
