My desk in January: My desk a few days later:My goal: to spend 10 minutes a day cleaning up and then maintaining order.
The reality: two weeks of overall improvement followed by six and a half months moving back and forth between photo 1 and photo 2.
It's all over now! This is how I spent a large portion of my holiday weekend: Look, look! No boxes underneath! Everything has been sorted to its proper location (mostly other areas of the house). I did pile some papers on the school table, my next area to conquer.
Lots and lots of paper went into the recycling, too. If you keep it around long enough (I found some 2007 material!), most of it becomes obsolete, anyway. I did some actual decluttering, too.
This sight will keep me smiling for days.
