I started following along the first couple of days she was doing it in March (but didn't find time to blog about it) but then we left on our trip and so not much progress was made - but this week I am ready to go again. :-)
Crystal has various assignments that you can print out and check off. Since I find that rather fun to do - I have done that.
This week is a busy one for us as we have a church Retreat this weekend and we are helping out a lot with that and will also be having friends stay with us while they attend the retreat with us. So I have projects to finish for the retreat and then a house to get clean as well. It was nice to sit down and write out a list of things that needed to be accomplished to be ready for this weekend.
In the assignment we are told to find 7 things to declutter. I have found that sometimes I find it a little hard to get started on this but once I do and can really get going and find far more than the required number. Though I tend to collect stuff and like to have plenty of things on hand, I have also started to realize how freeing it is to have less. There is less to clean and less to think about - that translates into more time for me to do other things besides dealing with stuff. I like that.
Besides the physical stuff another area that I have really been working to declutter is on my computer. I have been working to keep my inbox emptied out -Yesterday I finally got it all empty - Yeah! Of course it doesn't stay empty so it is a constant project to try to deal with things as they come in and then get rid of them. I have also been trying to go through, weed out the bad and organize all the photos on my computer - that is a fun (though time consuming project) and makes things so much easier to find. I love it!
And this doesn't have to do with organizing at all....
How did your day go? Would you like to join me in trying to get more organized or are you already there?
