I spent the last hour cleaning off my desk and trying to clear my part of the office of junk. I have a large desk where my computer sits but I was trying to use if for all of these purposes:
- Make-up and hair drying
- Vitamin storage
- Personal paper correspondence (cards, stationery, stamps, address book)
- Work of my kinds
- Exercise clothes storage (what?)
- Medical records
Good grief. No wonder I was over-whelmed.
I've cleaned out everything but the work-related stuff. I have to find another place for all that other junk. I threatened on Facebook to start a bonfire in the middle of the street and start tossing.
I could use that TLC show about clutter...their team...to come in and get me organized.
Now I'm down to four piles.
- A current work pile
- An on-going work pile
- A personal pile
- A miscellaneous pile
Our house is too small to maintain this level of shit accumulation. It's a constant battle to keep the common areas free of junk. I have given up on the basement and the back porch. No, that's not true. But many days I don't have the gumption to face it.
The article that I have but keep losing is now on my desk. Front and center. How to Tackle Your Clutter. There you go.
