I purchased this basket from Trader Joe's after Christmas with a gift card of $5!! That was price of basket! I have it sitting on an unused chair in the dining room in an attempt to keep clutter at bay. I had a pile on the dining room table and I didn't like it. Mail, coupons, receipts. This basket helps manage the pile. Junk mail goes away fast. I am a pile-it so I have to manage to keep papers/cards/coupons at minimum. The pretty folder is from a $1 buy at Michaels some time ago. There were 3 folders in the package. I find it cheery.
Points to Ponder:
1> Do I know what is "good enough" for my house? The floors need cleared and sitting surfaces free to just sit down, not have friend move papers or stuff. Beds made, bathrooms clean. Decluttered tables so you can set something on it.
2>What did I organize this week? I am decluttering my counter tops.
3>Areas that I am struggling with in this challenge? Deciding what to let go of and finding time to do it all. I have just been using a few minutes a day to attack the project at hand.
