One of our challenges in my 5% weight loss challenge is to declutter this week. Well, it's best that I show you all the before pictures here in this blog, since there are so many of them.

I will do my best to get done what I am able today, as tomorrow, my friend comes to house sit and I am off to the Mayo Clinic, yet again, and it looks like I will be there all week. I pray not, but we will see.

I will post another blog, just before I leave tomorrow, so you can see the headway that God and I made. Without further todo, here are my pictures, in all of the mess that I call my computer room/office.

This is standing in the doorway of the room.

This is venturing a bit more into the room.

Looking at part of my computer desk.

Stuff on the other side of the chair and under the chair.

My computer desk.

My filing cabinet and things on the floor in front of the cabinet.

More of a mess and my shredding and printing area.

More of my computer desk and my printer.

My filing cabinet and the mess on the floor.

Now you see everything in my computer room/office, and as I said tomorrow before I leave I will show you the headway that God and I made in DECLUTTERING this MESS that I made and I will TOLERATE NO LONGER!!!!

    Purging is so cathartic .... and liberating. Blessings for your visit at the Mayo Clinic ..and may you not have to stay for the entire week.

    I think we have "twin" rooms!
    Our "office", "computer" room is more of a "junk" room and all the things I don't know what to do with end up there. We started work on it, too. My plan is to work on big things first and then lastly do files, which don't show as much, but take a lot of time. Do you have old CD's, old tapes, pictures, etc. in your office? Our computer there quit working, too and now we have laptops we use in the living room, so we got rid of that.
    Good luck on your plan! emoticon

    You will feel so good once it is all cleaned up. Love the pictures. It might take you a little longer than a day.

    Thanks for sharing, fellow Challenge member! It's encouraging to be reminded that I'm not the only one-- AND that I don't have to do it alone! emoticon emoticon

    AWESOME, Nancy Jean! My office/sewing room/store room looks even worse. I'm hitting the same project. First I'm tackling the surfaces and obvious trash and then I'm diving deeper. I probably have 1000 books in there, three six-foot tall shelving units and stacks of books on the floor. Well, I need to USE this room so I think I have reached the same level of determination as you. Let's do it!

    Hope your trip to Mayo has good results.

    You do have a task ahead of you but you will feel so much better when it's done. And I saw a yoga mat in those photos - you can make enough room to use it. My question is this - why does all this stuff always end up in our offices? I tackled my office a couple weeks ago. Just couldn't stand it anymore! Every time I clean the house the stuff that I don't know what to do with ends up in my office and/or on my desk. I finally decided it had to be thrown away or I needed to find a place for it!

    Good luck with your visit to the Mayo Clinic. I hope you don't have to stay too long too! I will send up some prayers for your health.

    Bless you, I hope all goes well at the mayo clinic. I have the same problem with my house, I need God to help me declutter too! Wish you all is well and have a great week!
