Days 22-25 of the Clutter Free Challenge go together well for a single post. And since half of them were done previously and half of them were digital, there’s not too much to report on.
Day 22: Home Office Day 23: Bills/Paperwork
I already reports on this on the Master Bedroom day since my new home office resides in a corner of the bedroom and the setup is still working great for me. You’ll notice that underneath the little table is a file box. I keep all my paperwork in files inside and bill paying supplies right there. When new bills come in, they go all together and are easily pulled out to be paid once a week.
Day 24: Digital Data Day 25: Photos
There is still much to do here but I consider these days accomplished since I spent several hours and have things in much better shape than they were before. I removed a ton of old files from my computer that I used in my old business and no longer need and cleared the computer desktop of so many icons that when I looked at it later I had a momentary panic that all my stuff was gone 😉 My husband, as a computer guy, is always frustrated at the messiness of that desktop so I had to show off to him and he said he’s never seen it so clean. We’ve backed up all photos onto an external drive and I’m in the process of sorting and getting them saved over to Dropbox. While I was at it, I also did some cleanup of my email inboxes and went from over 1500 unread messages to under 900; it’s amazing how good that lower number makes me feel.
