We’re in the middle of decluttering and simplifying this month. I’m focusing on my home office, but you can find a checklist with a room-by-room quick decluttering plan linked at the end of this post.
So here’s my progress from this past week.
Bookshelf Clean Up
My main goal during this challenge is simplifying my work space to make it function more efficiently for me. I moved everything off of the bookshelf to the left of my computer desk so that I can place the items I use most often in the most convenient location.
While I was rearranging my book shelves I took the time to go through the books we currently have and select several to give away. A few of them are pictured above.
I truly love books and I especially love hanging on to books that have an emotional memory attached to them, like the books I read to the kids when they were younger. I’m keeping a few of the most special ones, but the rest are going because there is absolutely no reason to keep books that we are not going to read again.
Not only am I a book hoarder, I am a paper hoarder. I have probably 20 binders where I have gathered “important” and “helpful” information, as well as notes from previous projects.
Yep, I’m like the cat lady except with binders.
So I did the brave thing and started going through the binders to see if there is anything I actually need to hold on to. Not much, as it turns out.
It was a challenge but I recycled all that paper. (If you need help getting started on your paper piles, check out my 10 Minute Paper Pile Fix HERE.)
