Working on the mess


Well I have been working on projects in my house for the last several weeks.  Projects to get rid of clutter.  I can't stand it clutter and I seem to be building up alot of it.  Last weekend I started on my bedroom.  My bedroom is the room that has the most clutter because it is the room that I put everything that I think I need to look at later, ie...magazine articles, magazines that I don't have time to go through, books that I want to read....well I managed to get it all cleaned out, the closet included, but now I have piles of things in my room that I have to take care of.  Even I was a little shocked by the extent of it. 
In my room I have now have the following piles
46 actual magazines
8 sales catologs
49 books to read
5 books that I have started but not finished!
Well I know it is going to take me alot of time to go though all this stuff, mostly the books to read.  The magazines I can go though and clip out the pages I want to keep for recipes and such.  I have manilla folders that I keep certain articles I want to keep and file them in the file cabinet.  The recipes I put in a manilla folder until I am able to add them to the computer.  I am hoping to get alot of this done this weekend!  Keep your fingers crossed that I will be able to get though at least the magazines. 
HUmmmmm do you realize this means that I will be able to sit on the couch wrapped in a blanket all day and still accomplish what i want to accomplish???

You sound like me!!  I am in the midst of some major cleaning and decluttering but I am leaving the master bedroom for last as it will be the worse (now that I got out junk/storage room cleaned out!).

I like the way you think! No need to rush through like a lunatic! If you go at it to quickly, you wind up throwing away stuff you might have wanted!

Happy Thanksgiving!
