31 Day Declutter Challenge
Well, we’ve made it through three entire weeks in the 31 Day Declutter Challenge so I wanted to give you an update on my progress and hear about yours. (Be sure to leave a comment or a link below.)
Decluttering Challenge Update
This week I focused on the right side of my office.
Office Corner Before
I had papers to go through and file, supplies that needed to be gathered and stored away and general disorganization to remedy.
I used my Quick Sort Paper Organizing Method (read more HERE) to quickly organize the papers into categories. I shredded some, recycled some and filed some.
I’ve been scanning some of this information into Evernote so I can throw away the papers, and I’ll be continuing that process over the next few weeks. (See How to Organize with Evernote HERE.)
Office Corner After
A great way to hide “clutter” that you need (in my case, office supplies, reference papers, notebooks, project supplies) is to “containerize” them by placing them inside of baskets or bins so that you have a simplified look, but the individual items are out of sight.
I previously purchased most of the baskets at the thrift store and a couple of them at Michael’s, but they were in different locations around the house. I like the clean, unified look of the baskets rather than a lot of miscellaneous items strewn about the shelves.
Looking at the shelf now helps me focus when I need to get work done, but all of the items I need are right where I can find them.
I didn’t have time to photograph my donation items this week, but I’ll give you a full update on those in next week’s post.
