Every week I post about a clutter hot spot in my home. I’m currently working on my desk, including a box of paper clutter I filled up from the desk a few weeks ago.
Here’s my desk picture for today:
And….. I don’t have an after picture today for the desk. But I did do some work on my paper clutter box.
Here’s how it looked last week.
I worked on it for 15 minutes (timed) and here’s how I did (That recycle bag was almost empty when I started):
See that pink date book in the box? I had it in my hand, and then I put it back in there because I couldn’t decide what to do with it. It’s hard for me to get rid of old datebooks. It sort of tells about my life for that year.
But maybe it’s not telling about the really important things.
On rare occasion the old ones have helped me with tax information or birthdays.
Now I’m thinking maybe I could let myself keep them for just one extra year. What do you think?
I did take time to deal with most of the sorted piles. But my Take Action pile on the desk is growing faster than I would like. I did take some action on dealing with some health insurance stuff today though!
Even slow progress is still progress, right?
Maybe I wasn’t super inspirational today, but I can direct you to someone who inspired me with her attack on paper clutter. Check out what Megan did over at Declutter Daily.
I have some friends coming over tomorrow after dinner, so you know what I’ll be doing with any spare time I can find! I have a feeling the desk will look a little better by tomorrow night.
