Exterminate the clutter bug ~ Balance Challenge #3

Are you a clutter bug or a neat freak? Pile maker or pile organizer? Do you prefer order or revel in chaos? There is no right or wrong answer. People are different and there is room for everybody in this big world of ours. In light of Balance Challenge #3, I admit I’m out of balance in the organization department because I’m a clutter bug. My house is clean, but please don’t open up a drawer or look in my closet or cupboards. My hidden spaces are embarrassingly messy.

My Balance Challenge this week is to pick one drawer, pile of papers or cupboard and organize it, clean it out, disinfect or do whatever it takes to reset my off-kilter-ness in this part of life. It’s a daunting task to do a lot at once, so I’m starting small. One thing a day. Just one. After a week I expect to feel less disorder in the nooks and crannies of my life.

Yesterday I started with my closet shelves and will attempt to clean a bathroom drawer next. I’m almost afraid to straighten up the kitchen drawer next to the phone, so will put that off until later in the week. Can you relate to hidden disorganization? Jump on board and let’s push ourselves to exterminate the clutter bug hiding inside us.

I'm doing the same thing. Slowly. A little bit each day. A friend of mine calls it "decrapifying". LOL Well put, I think because I seem to have a lot of "crap" everywhere. LOL

Hugs,
Kat
