Do you have one of those rooms where you put the things you don't know what to do with or just don't want to deal with them at the time? Or maybe it's a place where you stash when companies coming over. I have to admit, I have one of those rooms. It's a small bedroom that we were using as an office, a computer room, and quiet room. Now, it gets used for none of those reason, it's become a catch all room, a room we shut the door to and pray that the house fairy will come and clean it some night.
They say when you have a problem the first thing you need to do is admit it to yourself and others, so: My name is Sheryl and I have not a junk drawer, not a junk cupboard but a junk room.
So, there you have it, I'm a closet junk room junkie.
My filing system has been one of the most basics for the last 1 1/2 years; pay the bills throw the papers in a box - all together.
***rolls eyes here***
I decided this room would be my project while I am between jobs.
I grab my "filing box" and head to the living room so I can at least watch a movie (or two) as I sort.
I wasn't without company, Jake and Sami enjoyed the fresh air.
And TJ came later to see what he was missing.
Not all of the company was useful, actually some of it was down right distracting:
After an afternoon of Flylady - 15 minute sessions I was able to reduce my file box to this (and these papers already had a file folder - why didn't I just put them there to begin with?):
The question remains: Why do we think we need to keep the things we keep some times?
I have my heart dead set on finishing this room before I go back to work.
Hummm...wonder how much I can get done in that room tomorrow afternoon?
What about you, what are you holding on too?
