I think I will switch to my bedroom. That is a bit more do-able for a short time frame.

Technically, I have finished this challenge as everything is out of the bedroom closet. However, there is a bunch of stuff that needs to be relocated, donated or recycle sitting in my living room.

There is always something.... emoticon

What a great idea! Just saw this challenge. SO behind on Spark.

My alleged "formal" dining room is actually the house catch-all spot. Going to unearth it. Or try. emoticon

I put some time in on the 52 missions. Put my Fastbreak SparkSheets in their section so the desk top is clearer. Plan on mail catch-up and some more filing today. Marginally better than start of challenge. Notice my tolerance of the chaos is diminishing. Impatient in a good way.

There are some knick knacks that are now waiting for a place to rest, storage, or the trash. But other then that my pile is gone. They are up in the study, so you might say that the pile only got smaller and moved BUT. I'm quite pleased with the progress emoticon emoticon

With my recent move I have come to appreciate de-cluttering even more. The areas that I was on top of moved easy, found a place in the new home easy, it's the clutter, non essentials, that are still sitting in my dining room.

I will do 15 minutes on the timer and come report back

I hear ya! This is a great challenge, but I know it may take a few more days to tackle the problem.

Holler if you have managed to finish your project! But if you need more time - keep it going!

I did good for a few days, but after the weekend I fell off the wagon. I'll have to make a concerted effort over the weekend to work on my office. My work week is busy enough that when I get home it's real difficult to get motivated to do much more than I absolutely have to.

I did a bunch yesterday and feel motivated today, the pile looks a little smaller.

One of my weaknesses is to make a call, or find a place to donate stuff. Then it sits in your house and gets re-absorbed! But my friend has a friend who owns a charity, she is setting up a collection, now I have a timed goal, this is good and bad lol.

Our bonus room...I am embarrassed to admit it has become a catch all over the last year full of out grown toys and clothes. There is a kids consignment sale next Wednesday. My goal is to get as much as possible out of that room and into the sale. It is an awesome big room, but totally unusable at this point.

Since I just moved I have all my clutter out in the open, no hiding here, lol. Every time we found something that didn't have an obvious place we put it in the corner of the dining room. That is my spot!

I was planning on leaving it til after I finish more urgent piles but 15 minutes will make me feel better emoticon

My spot IS my office. Don't know how much progress I can make in 7 days, but I'll give it a shot.

Funny, I just read about this tonight, but I got up early this morning and spent at least 20 minutes working on a stack of papers on my desk. Tomorrow, I'll finish the stack.

I don't do this often enough

My spot is my computer area - I spent a few hours a while back cleaning the area but created 2 piles that haven't been dealt with. Need to as they are really just in the way and the cats are constantly jumping up in that area which messes things up more.

Come on, confess up. You have at least one spot that is just plain scary messy. It might be that catchall spot where everything ends up, or a single drawer, or a closet or an entire room.

This challenge addresses that issue.

Pick a spot, drawer, cabinet, room, closet or whatever is full of junk that belongs elsewhere or out the door.

Set a timer in increments of 15 minutes

EVERY day clear, sort or work on that spot for at least 15 minutes.

Do this every, SINGLE day for SEVEN days.

I promise you, even if is not completely decluttered or organized, you will feel better. (And certainly you will deserve a goodie!)

Ready, set and go!
