52 weeks of Organizing
February 18, 2011 11 Comments
1. Let’s talk stuff! What have you tossed out this week? Lots of paper and 2 shirts with stains on them.
2. Have you ever regretted something you’ve gotten rid of? Why? Yes actually my first sewing machine… I think I could have had it cleaned and serviced and it could be my backup machine now.
3. How tempted are you to rush out and pick up pretty organizing containers first? I have bought some first, but just a few that I knew I could use.
This week was taxes week. My appointment was yesterday and I always wait until the last minute. Well this time I gave myself 5 days. Um…yeah, I was still working on them at the last minute. Pulling out my tax file from the top drawer of my file cabinet pushed me into starting on the files. I need to clean out and oganize my 4 drawer filing cabinet. Here is what the top drawer looked like:
My dining room table looked pretty much like this all week:
Why am I saying “pretty much”. It did look like that all week. However, last night was my tax appointment right after my chronic pain group. My accountant is a very patient man. His daughter and my youngest daughter went through grade school together, so it is a time of catching up too.
Finally this morning I was able to put everything leftover away, took off the tablecloth and took this lovely picture of my table with the tulips and wedding reception vase from my neighbor:
Aaahhh much better!
I spent a lot of time with the shredder this morning! My top drawer is not finished. I still need to make labels, which involves changing the batteries in the label maker, which I need to go buy!
Slowly but surely I am making progress and it feels really good! Now to go see what everyone else did this week!
