I remember once upon a time when I used to be neat. This was maybe 20 years ago, before I had so much "stuff." As I got older, I accumulated more and more things, which led to me becoming the clutterbug that I am today.
Aside from watching a ton of movies, which weren't on my holiday To Do list, I had a number of chores I'd been putting off for-ever, including #6, tackling my "desk clutter" and that's what I spent a good 8 hours - no joke - off and on dealing with yesterday. I filed, recycled and shredded and this is what it looks like now:
I didn't have the foresight to take a before shot as I hadn't thought to blog about it but I'm just so proud of how it looks. Seriously. I'd forgotten what the desktop looked like since the last time I saw it was over a year ago, when we first set my study up. It makes me smile, that's how happy I am to be able to actually see the surface!
Now, I'm not really into New Year's resolutions because like 99% of the population, I tend to break them - and also because I always see September, with it's association with school and my birthday, as the true start of the year - but my goal is to keep my study as neat through the year as the day it started. Impossible? Time will tell.
Next up on my To Dos: de-cluttering my living/dining area.
