Still not great at the balancing thing, so I only got a drawer done today. One drawer, and it is very hard to see the difference, but it is something. And the reason I didn’t do a lot of cleaning — finishing the galleys for The Nearly Notorious Nun; writing a poem for an anthology; submitting a proposal for an article — those were all GOOD things.
Anyway, here is the drawer, before and after. I also cleared a couple of almost empty boxes out, but that was so little that I didn’t even take pictures…
cluttered at least somewhat de-cluttered
If I get more energy, I will do more. Right now, I am wiped out from the last few days of proofreading. It is amazing how draining that can be.
EDIT: So, I managed to go through another drawer. I’m halfway through the drawers in the kitchen, and about a third of the way through the cabinets. Those are mostly hidden spaces, but having them organized will make it easier to keep the outer surfaces clear too.
Anyway, I got the worst junk drawer organized:
This drawer collects a lot of junk. And a good deal of it has better places to be. I took all the stuff that really didn’t need to be in the kitchen out and left the tools that it might be handy to have close to hand…
Now I know where a flashlight is if I need it. 🙂
And it even has batteries!
