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???
