Day 2 - Desk

OMG.  My desk was a MESS.  I hoard office supplies, so I had to force myself to get rid of pens & other crap that was just collecting dust.  Why did I think I needed to keep a box of business cards that had NONE of the correct information on them?  Why were there 3 staplers and 2 broken calculators sitting around?  And WHY were there 2 empty "2009" Christmas ornaments stashed under the pencil organizer? I don't know.  Here's the "before" shot.  Ugh.



And (almost 2 hours later) here's the "after" shot.  Much better.  I hope future challenges will help me get the rest of my bedroom/office/craft area cleaned up.  Note to self:  Throw more shit away!

    "Throw more shit away" needs to be my new mantra. :)

  2. Seriously. I'm not usually into keeping things for sentimental value... Hell, I didn't even keep the cards I got for our wedding or our kids' first Christmas cards. But for some reason, I just can't make myself throw away pens, paper, or other office stuff. I'm an addict!

  5. I'm stuck at work and want to do my "home" desk. Throw MORE Shit away will be an excellent Mantra.
    Good Job there.

  8. You are like me you put whatever you are working with on your desk. I'm constantly picking up yarn and stuff off my desk. Between you and Amy I'm going to get motivated.
