Household reclamation / road to an office  
Interesting, unexpected, and intriguing side effect: as I was driving home from my meeting, I started thinking about doing a decluttering ritual tonight, and immediately got a burst of energy. I'll take it, it's good positive reinforcement, but now I'm wondering if I'm maybe not putting everything back when I'm done with it, at the end of the cleaning session.

Still with sweet decaf coffee. Put in about an hour and a half.

Today's before picture is yesterday's after picture.

The white box turned out to be full of stuff -- including, she says with much joy, some of my filk songbooks! It was also full of pencils and pens and markers. All of that has been shifted downstairs into the Freecycle this pile. The boombox has been moved elsewhere, since Dale says that's the better one and we should keep it. The bottom shelf was emptied and dusted, and books were dusted and replaced.

The brown box in the lower left is books to go to McKay's, and the one on the right is stuff I want to keep but don't have a place for yet.

Isn't motivation a great thing?

Its great watching this shelf taking shape... it already looks so much better.

I like your temporary boxes too, they don't look too cluttered... its a good way to keep those items that will soon find a new home!

Motivation is wonderful!
