All Things Are Possible

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.

WOOHOO BARBARA!! It looks awesome and you mus feel such relief. You have inspired me to keep plugging away at my own clutter.

How great did that feel?! Now the challenge is to keep it up and that is where I fail too often. I clean it up and organize and then I don't maintain it past a couple of weeks or so.

Thanks for the challenge to keep my 'paper monster' under control!!

Great job!

Way to go Sweetie! I have several junk drawers that need an overhaul not to mention my desk. Somehow, I just seem to shuffle things back and forth from one place to another. You give me hope.
Lots of love,
