HELP What do you all use to motivate yourselves to clean up your desk? I have been trying for 2 weeks and I am just NOT motivated. Nothing is lost, like scissors or special pens that usually spurs on a tidy. At the weekend I sorted out and donated unwanted ATCs and swap postcards that were 5 or more years old. This was a cat induced activity as she wanted the box to sleep in.
So here is the low down, My problem comes from all those bloggers, classes, teachers etc who say never throw anything away. Friends, acquaintances and visitors....NEVER listen to this advice. Unless you have an organizing system for scraps that has categories for color, shape, size, type, etc etc etc. You will never find that one inch blue scrap of paper with a great floral design when you want it. Only after you have glued, stitched or both from a handy large piece will that scraps location be revealed. AND now you have added to the scraps!
My workspaces this week as of Tuesday 10.03 am CST!
With these few remarks I will return to desks and workspaces to attempt..... clean up. If, last weekend with hubby away, had I resisted the lure of Acorn TV and the wonderful BBC series like brief Encounters and Lilies this task would be complete.
So have fun visiting everyone this week. memo to self post this wednesday.
Tried to post at 1am but you were mot to be seen.
