Weekend Mini-Organizing Challenge: Top of Desk


Need some organizing motivation and inspiration, or a gentle nudge? Subscribe to my blog to receive mini-organizing challenges several weekends a month. They will be automatically emailed to you so you won’t have to remember to visit the blog.

Mini-organizing challenges are doable and will focus on de-cluttering a tiny area of your home.  If the weekend challenge “speaks” to you, then set your timer for 30 minutes and start organizing/de-cluttering. Stop when the timer goes off and enjoy the rest of your weekend knowing that you accomplished something!  Of course you may continue organizing if you have gained the momentum you were looking for.


Mini-Challenge: Top of Desk

I really like my desk, in fact I bought it from a lovely client who happened to be downsizing:)  The 4 drawers are awesome and provide more than enough storage, keeping things at my finger tips. As you can see, the top of my desk isn’t clear….but I’m working on some writing projects and those are my notes.  The pink binder will go back on my closet shelf and the papers belong in a folder when I’m not working on them……I have to admit they usually remain on my desk.  The height of my paper pile is minimal and more importantly I can find what I need so it’s okay with me.

If you aren’t able to see the surface of your desk or able to find what you need, this is your challenge.  Spend 30 minutes putting stuff away and tossing/shredding papers.  I swear, 30 minutes will make a difference.

Your desk top should hold things you use everyday, not clutter you rarely look at.
