This quote really says it all.
I’ve been removing more little things that are just clutter. Old pictures that are duplicates( like @ 200), old pens, those old family books I mentioned in another post and more.
I’m up to 600 items. Of course, 6 pens is only 6 little items, but I still count them. I also count stuff I throw away like old files and papers and junky little things. I figure it’s all part of decluttering another layer.
One of the most helpful things I’ve done is take pictures with my iPhone and then look at the space. This has been very helpful in really seeing the space from an objective view.
Right now, I’m trying to work on my desk area. My desk is a Heywood Wakefield double wish bone table that I have the one leaf folded down against the wall. I have my printer, 2 plants, an orchid, my Mac book and then a desk organizer for bills etc. That’s the problem area. I need to figure out a way that this stuff isn’t so visible. I also have a bin that was on the floor with files and that too looks too messy I realized after looking at the pictures. I think I might try getting some magazine holders and see if that works.
I took off the wall folders so that looks better. Then I moved the file box to my Ikea cart. So, I’ll take another picture and see if that looks better.
