My desk is in a terrible state this morning and sitting here, feeling sorry for myself and woolly headed because of my cold, I thought it was time to do something about it.
I figured that it’s one of those minimum effort/maximum results kind of exercise – or at least, that’s what I hope.
I was further motivated by this article, found whilst I was procrastinating (mooching around the internet) and especially liked the idea to hide any stray post-it notes under the keyboard.
I thought of that one already!
It’s interesting that any “how to declutter” article includes pictures with empty – or nearly empty – shelves in it. Now, if we had empty shelves and places to put things, perhaps our desks wouldn’t be quite so cluttered? Which brings me to think that I ought to clear some space in the cupboards in my studio and empty a shelf or two…
Suddenly I feel even worse than I did when I began this series of thoughts. Today is definitely one for the Breadbox Test and any further, deeper measures to declutter will have to wait for another day.
