31 Days to Clean - Day 5

Today's assignment is about organizing my work environment. Well, like the living room, this was a fairly easy one. My desk is in our dining room, which we treat as just an extension of our living room. Over the past few weeks, I've been spending time each day cleaning off my desk, getting rid of things I don't use anymore, and filing paperwork. So today's assignment really just felt like an excuse to tidy up. Fun!



I put away a clean pair of socks that had ended up on my desk, wiped off the cat hair from Bruno sleeping right next to my laptop, and filed some recent mail. The notebooks on the top shelf of my desk are 1) a pretty spiral bound notebook I use at church to take notes on the sermons, 2) July's morning pages composition book, and 3) a new composition book for August's morning pages. The notebook sitting next to my laptop contains my six most important things lists.

Someday, I'm going to accrue enough Amazon gift cards (from filling out online surveys) to purchase these cat bookends. I want to store my composition notebooks, reference books, and my current reading books on the back of my desk and need a way to keep them propped up!

It looks like day 6 is a continuation of the workspace cleaning challenge. On Sunday, as I'm taking tomorrow off for the Sabbath, I'm going to rifle through my file box and purge the really old files and paperwork. I think I have tax records dating back to 1999.

Ha! yeah, i'm looking forward to cleaning my desk tomorrow. although mine is just a little table. I dont' get a pretty desk... although I don't work at my "desk" either. Too bad you didn't have a before picture from before you started work on your desk earlier!
