Sorting things in the office/spare bedroom/everything room, AGAIN! STILL!
Finally showing real progress!
What helped the most was having boxes (OR AREAS) labeled GARAGE, BASEMENT,SMALL BATHROOM, BIG BATHROOM, BEDROOM, LIVING ROOM, KITCHEN. BIG, VISIBLE, TYPED LABELS!
Instead of running aroun putting each thing away, I could put it in a box ans later take the box to the correct room. Wow, this idea saved me so much time! Thanks to Flylady!
Also, last year, I bought shelves to go on the desk. These shelves take care of lots of things I want out in the open.
Today I found a box of files from 2008, 2009, 1010, and 1011! Yes, this was still upstairs cluttering up this room! GONE!
A big, wastebasket of stuff got thrown out.
Lots of items were found and I can actually use them!
I was always overwhelmed with keeping papers organized but in 2006 when I was still working full time
, hubby had a stroke.
I handled moving from a huge house to our one floor condo. I NEVER , ever want to do that again! Plus just handling his care threw me for a loop. Now I am retired in an easy to clean condo and can attack those things left undone for those last few years.
I have been working on this room--uh, for a couple of years.
I have fibromyalgia and and lived here while working full time and caregiving , and, and... so I found this really hard to do.
It is tax time and all this stuff makes doing real work very difficult. I used to put a table here in the midst of the clutter and sort tax stuff on it. Well, the cat
would scatter those papers and make things worse!
But I don't need that table this year because I can work at my desk!
Hubby is still in bed, but I hear the TV so he will be ready to get up soon. My peace has ended.
It is like having children wake up and start needing Mommy...
