Tackle it Tuesday - organising giftwrap & bedside table


Tackle It Tuesday Meme


I usually do my tackles on the weekend since I’m at work during the week. This is one of the systems that keeps me on track since I’m constantly doing something in the decluttering/ organising area to keep my house in tip-top shape. Well…mostly.

This weekend I was drugged out on Nurofen so I only did a couple of small tackles. They are what we in the coaching world call tolerations. They drain your energy a little bit every time you see them. So I felt almost compelled to tackle them this week because they call to me everytime I pass them.

Mini tackle 1
These are my rolls of wrapping paper and some other bits that also found their way to this spot.
Before

After - nice, neat wastepaper basket



Mini tackle 2
Bedside table with too many books, too many Bibles, too many bookmarks, notepads, etc.

Before



And after. I know it won’t stay this way for very long but it’s satisfying while it lasts.


Mini tackle 3

And then for the third project, I tackled some long-overdue blogging. This is a blog we made for our friends and then I also had to update the ministry blog at church.

Mini tackle 4

And last but not least, I got all up to date on my end-of-month business tasks like balancing the account, updating client lists, responding to emails, and so on. I won’t bore you with the less-than-cool aspects.

That’s it for this week. I’m leaving the handbags for next week.

I love the organizing blog you have over here!! I'm a FLYLady fan and I've always wondered what to do with the wrapping paper. Well done. Now I must run out & organize mine in the garage....
