I work in the History department. For some reason the people that worked before us never threw anything away. There are guidelines for how long you need to keep stuff, and most of those guidelines say to throw the crap out!

Since the summer is very slow for us, and Fridays are even slower, we decided that it was time for some things to go. We filled up 3 copy paper boxes, 4 trash cans and 3 recycle bins. Seriously... that's a lot of stuff! I moved things around, got rid of empty binders and generally tidied up.
Now... I need to go home and replicate this!
After I shower... I feel like I'm covered in dust.
