Clutter Cutter

365 Items in 365 Days Challenge

I really wasn't planning on joining something else this least not for a while.

You see, I've joined umpteen reading challenges.  I'm posting book reviews on my blog now, both independently and from tours and authors who have provided me a copy of their book for free in exchange for my honest review.  And I'm doing the winter Blogathon Bash this weekend.  And the Winter's Respite Read-a-thon next week.  And I'm taking a full load of courses at college.

So now, as much or more than ever, I need to be organized.  And there is too much stuff around to be organized.  I am SO glad I ran across the above challenge, hosted at the From Overwhelmed to Organized blog.  After reading the challenge sign-up post, I did a little work on the right side of my desk and can actually see the surface of the desk several spots.  Yes, it's that bad.

So, you can 'see' why I'm here.  I'm figuring on making updates in a weekly Saturday post


  1. I am impressed- organizing is difficult, especially when you are busy enough already and love to write

  2. Thanks Melanie! That means a LOT, coming from you! :O)

  3. What a good idea to tackle clutter. I've noticed that when I focused on the task of ridding clutter, I immediately became more organized. Good luck on yours!

  4. That is a great challenge. I am working on organizing our home and getting rid of the clutter we have gained over the years. Its amazing to see home much can fit in one little closet. I wish you the best in this challenge. Thanks for stopping by. I started following on GFC.

  5. Oh! Maybe I should look into this. I definitely need it for my mission to declutter and downsize this year. It's not going as quickly as I hoped it would.

  6. @Wendi - that's kind of like when I stop looking for something, I find it. :O)

    @Grandma Bonnie - We just moved in here last summer and we've got too much stuff already! Good luck with your organization as well!

    @Toni - Mine either, Toni. But we do what we can. And we can do it!
