Cleaning Out The Clutter

Okay…

 

Last night was the beginning of a much-needed task and it is yet to be completed. Last night I started getting ready of old papers and bills. And not stuff that recently has been there but things that I bought with me to my apartment over a year ago. I thought that I was putting a dent in this myself until it was bought to my attention that I was not (thanks to the other half).

 

So last night it started with just shredding random papers that was on the counter. He started with any of my bills that were past 2 years old. Any print-outs I had that I may have bought home to read. News papers and magazines placed them to the side and put any of my books in the boxes that I have. I already have file folders for the up to date bills. So I just placed everything in its right place for the meantime. We even had the little one involved. She had a lot of papers from the last school term that she really didn’t need. Anything that she could not use again I we had her shred.

 

It is amazing how much lighter the place felt after getting rid of a couple of papers and putting things in its place.  After getting over the initial attitude behind the other half taking the initiative in doing this for me I was glad that he did. It really help me to see how a lot of what I was feeling had to do with the fact that I wasn’t able to get things in order the way I want to. I still have a long way to go but at least I can say I have begun.

 

What are some of the things you do to keep the clutter down?
