I did not get to the "memory box" stack but did clear out other items and have the back of my car filled with bags, older printer for goodwill. DH is dropping off a fair amount of donations we've assembled for the local humane society. I can't drop off as I will want to take something home.

Tonight I'll try to get to that memory box project if time, but might have that be for mid-week. Remembering to drop Goodwill will be a plus.

May I join in?

Micro-declutter goal: Find another place for the extra coffee pot that takes up precious space in my office - perhaps Goodwill.

Half the kitchen table cleared and also managed to clean out my refrigerator of some "lab" projects that had been developing for some time . Also managed to finish up my pantry organizing (for now). I've slowly been moving flour, sugar, and other baking goods from their packaging to more efficient and space saving canisters. A few items still need to be transferred but I don't have canisters for them yet. I'm pleased with the results and thankful that Google and Pinterest exist from which to steal worthy ideas

It will be a busy work week for me so my goal is to get the other half of the table cleared. I've set a reward of fresh cut flowers for it but only after it's cleared and not a moment before!

Hello
Thanks gardenerjoy for starting the week for us. And good work in your decluttering. I see maintenance status in a few areas.

Hello to everyone back at it again.

I've been sick the past few days but after a miraculous healing nap this morning I've turned the corner. I think tomorrow I may be able to get back to the studio and make some progress.

I need some end goals for my studio space which I will aim for week by week until I make it happen.

END GOALS FOR STUDIO
1) clear table surface completely
2) gather like materials together
3) store like materials together
4) store loose artwork in tubes or bags or portfolios
5) move items to be stored out of studio and into storage space
6) clear desk top
7) clean coffee maker
8) remove flooring and wash it
9) replace flooring
10) install mini chandelier as visual reward for cleaning and setting up studio for the new year

I'll be back tomorrow with what I think I can accomplish in the next 24hrs.

I did it! I put it in a backpack and routed my walk past Goodwill. And there it sits for some proud new owner.

Thanks, guys.

Even though I am somewhat over-committed to challenges this month, I would like to join this one.

Starting off easy with a goal of clearing the dresser tops in the bedroom. A collection of papers and Things To Remove From The House is resting there.

At least I feel I'm making forward/continued progress here if not in weight loss. I went by Goodwill too, and dropped off a good sized load, and surprised DH who, I think, thought I'd forget.

Dishes were done and table set back up nicely after dinner - kitchen IS much nicer with completely cleared off counters (except for the items with permanent status - toaster, tea canister, fruit bowl, etc.) ... that remains my target for every night. Funny how it was done in my house growing up with my mom never once thinking about it - it was just how she kept the home.

Another day to spend with a sore throat. Did not go out to studio.

Happy to read of everyone's progress and of our growing group.

A little does go a long way.

onebyone, I hope you are feeling much better today!

I continue my daily process and have not gotten to posting. Last week in Glenwood I took my 2 boxes to thrift. They had been sitting in my office for awhile. I also grabbed my trash can full of office paper and dropped it off at recycle while running another errand. I'm headed back there today and it will be nice to have less clutter in my office.

It's been a harried week and while I kept up with laundry/dishes and kitchen counters clean....paperwork and other stuff started to build up. I didn't feel like doing any of it last night after work so I just went to bed early and got up early. I've been sorting/filing/purging/paying for about 2 hours now. I'm caught up and my space in my office feels so much better.

Clothes are in the dryer. Important since I need my work clothes to be clean and ready to go when I return.

I'm heading down to enjoy a cup of coffee and attack clutter that has built up on the dining room table.

I could have headed over to Glenwood yesterday after work but it is really more important to me these days to get my home back in order. I really notice the difference when I walk back in the front door after a trip over. It's either, yuk, or a happy feeling depending on the effort I have put in. I like that. It's my choice.

Onward and Upward!
