Here are the results of another day of working to eliminate clutter from our lives, that we may make room for people, for beauty, and for order. Even though I found so many more than 5 items yesterday, there was no time to slack off today! You see, the challenge is to: recycle, throw out, give away or give back 5 things per day - regardless of what happened the day before.
This picture includes . . .
1 pile of papers for recycling
1 pile of papers to throw away
1 mat I ruined by putting it in the washing machine yesterday (yes, the homemaking mishaps have not stopped)
1 box of things to give back to my Mum
1 bag of things to give back to a guest who is coming tonight
Much of the paper pile was sourced from this paper-catchment area on top of the microwave . . .
Which is now looking a little more presentable . . .
Dave says it looks the same as before. He is a man (and I love him).
Tomorrow's tasks include emptying these paper pile drawers . . .
If you have joined with me in this little challenge, and posted about it on your blog, why not put a link to your post in the comments section?
The basic principle is . . . if you don't like it or find it useful, send it out the door!
