The Purge Week 1: Office

So appropriate.

So appropriate.

 
Alright, guys. Are you ready? ARE YOU READY?! We are going to organize. Prioritize. Declutter…ize. I really tried to think of a third word, but it wasn’t happening. Regardless, we’re starting “Week One” with YOUR OFFICE! Your work space. Your creative corner.

Maybe you don’t have an office. Maybe, like me, you just have a desk. In your kids’ playroom. That’s always getting covered in stuff, because, well, you have TOO MUCH STUFF. Don’t judge what you’re about to see.

I know exactly where everything is. The newer stuff is on top, the older stuff is on the bottom.

I am notorious for just moving my piles from place to place. If I move my massive pile of books and binders to a different surface, then my desk is clean! Don’t talk to me about how that doesn’t make any sense. I don’t want to hear your rational thoughts.

But not today.

NOT TODAY!

Today, I put away each of those books. I found a place for every binder. And, I threw away two plastic sacks of papers that I didn’t need. Why did I even HAVE two plastic sacks worth of papers that I DIDN’T NEED?! And you know what? It took me twenty minutes. Five of those minutes I was cleaning pee off of my bathroom floor (My three year old son is potty training. Woooo.) I even DUSTED. I hate dusting. But I did it. It’s done. Don’t give me your excuses. Get busy!

This blog is full of memes because organizing is hard, and laughing helps.

  1. Why, oh why did you start with the office? I was reserving that for later on in the challenge. Like much later. Acckk! Well, I guess you knew what needed done most.

    1. Haha! Because my bedroom closet is HORRIBLE, so I couldn’t start with those 😉 Can’t wait to see your before and after, don’t forget to post pictures!
