Start With a Corner of Clutter

It’s easier to tackle a corner of clutter when you have time on your side, which isn’t often when you are a busy working parent. Usually it’s something that you walk by and say under your breath… if only I had time to sort that out. You know it won’t take long, but there’s always something pulling you away from it.

Today, I sat at the breakfast bar looking at the dining room area and knew that I wasn’t going to have the time to declutter the whole thing. So, I focused on this pile of magazines and papers in the corner…

… and recycled the ones that I didn’t want, leaving just a small pile for reading.

This motivated me to make a start on the other mound of stuff sitting next to it – most of which ended up being split between plastics and cardboard which I took straight out to the recycling bins.

After a quick sweep of the floor, the dining room corner looked much tidier.

That’s it for today’s challenge.

Until tomorrow…
