Well . . . How did you do on finding a pile to eliminate?
I was a slacker, and chose my easiest pile — the pile on the landing. Actually, it was the one that was the most in my way, and I was tired of tripping over it.
In that pile, I found fabric that needed to be put away, pieces and parts from 3 different projects, a quilt top that needs to be quilted, a half-finished pillow kit, and some more thread.
Sadly, some of that stuff just got put into another pile, but I did put away the things I knew I had homes for. So small progress, but better than nothing.
And things are in such a mess around here, that I need another such task this week. I’m sorta leaving this one wide open for you — you get to choose for yourself:
In all the organizing you’ve done so far, is there still one area that you just keep skipping over?
An area that you just keep adding to?
A pile you just haven’t committed to dealing with?
A mess that’s just become such a fixture that you don’t even notice it any more?
I have several of these. But the one I’ve chosen to work on this week is the top of the file cabinet in my office.
I can see at first glance that most of this stuff just needs to be dusted off and put away.
That “fluff” you can see on the top surface is from the attic. The hole for the attic is directly above the file cabinet, and the guys needed to climb up there for something. Every time they do, that “fluff” comes wafting down and gets all over everything. Obviously, it won’t clean itself up, either!
I also evidently thought that piling more stuff on top of it was a good solution!
It’s time to deal with it.
What about you? I’d love to hear what area you’ll be tackling this week!
