The Decluttering Challenge

The Decluttering Challenge - student project

Here's my before image....my office space shares space with my bedroom.  Until recently, they had been struggling to extricate themselves from one another.  However, with the help of this class, I was able to get rid of several things that were not fueling...well....anything, much less the work I want to get done.

I still haven't really narrowed down what it is I want to accomplish this year....there are many things.  The main one being making more money!!  I think I need to take your other class, on finding your life's purpose, next.

Here's a photo of all the stuff I moved, in order to clear out my space.  The whole container will be making it's way to the basement soon.  I also managed to put away my clean and dirty laundry, which made an appearance in the before picture.

And finally.....my after photo.  My handy dandy father helped me put the t.v. on the wall, and I went out looking for a stand to hold my laptop on, and came back with a, (much CHEAPER wire filing unit), to put it on.  It works just fine, and with the money I saved, I also purchased a wireless keyboard.  The kind with the USB receiver, not the blue tooth.  It was on sale for 25 bucks, at Staples.  So now, I have a place to stash notebooks and post-it notes on my desk, a YUGE monitor for my laptop, and when I'm not typing, a place to put notebooks to write, draw, etc.

This was a very handy class.  I would recommend it to anyone looking to declutter their work space!!  Thanks for posting!
