Look at this:
Pitiful. Just how long ago was it, that I posted about my spot ‘o purdy??
I know it can’t have been that long ago. Oh no, <groan> now I’m going to have to do research. <shudder> A word that is so close a cousin to math, that it gives me the heebie jeebies too.
Groan, it was only June 27. Yes, this year. Amazing how fast clutter accumulates!
So, once I recognized the problem, (That’s the first step, right Gary??), I determined to restore the spot’s former glory.
- Put garbage bag in the can. Naturally after taking out the full one. I even went all out, and took the kitchen trash too- all the way outside to the bin!!
- Replaced the filter in my Brita, put the rest of the box in the pantry. (Where hopefully I will remember to look for it, next time I need it!)
- Filed the blue, and purple polka dotted calendar, along with the bills, and the check! (How in the world did I end up buying an extra $69 money order for last month’s rent?? Well, you know how me and math don’t get along!!)
- Put the glitter glue away in the craft cabinet. I actually have a place for it now!! Yoo hoo!!!
- The little pink box in the back is baggies, so kitchen cabinet. They even have a designated spot, too! I’m on a roll!!
- Unpacked the cardboard package, and put stuff away in bathroom.
- Placed stapler in desk cubby.
- Stashed the 4 magic towels. Just don’t ask me where…..
- Put pink box of new earrings, in donate spot. And they’re already gone!!
- Trashed the $1 microfiber towel, since I’m selling Norwex now. (And then what happens just yesterday?? Barb, from De-cluttering the Stuff, challenged me to do a side by side comparison between a cheap microfiber cloth cleaning job, and a Norwex one! Herp derp! NEVER throw anything away!! No, wait! Wrong lesson! Do get rid of anything not useful, or beautiful. And it only costs a dollar to replace. And it’s only 1 item I’ve regretted getting rid of, out of about 1 million[??]. So, I think I’m on the good side, there!)
And then, Ta-Da!!
Here we are, back to Purdy!!
