August declutter challenge - day 29

Only two days left...

I run Virtual Organising Seminars for people all over the world. Isn't the internet amazing?! During our time together, we organise your desk, get your paper and emails organised and set up a planning and priority system for you.

During the last one, I decluttered paper from about 6 file binders that are now totally empty. I'll repurpose the other files...

but this one is going. For me, filing is the same like carrying handbags - the bigger the file, the more paper you collect. So out it goes. Together with a few odds and ends found around my office space. Which just goes to show, there's always room for improvement, even in an organised office :)

Over this month, what have you decluttered from your office? How much paper has gone?

P.S. The next VOS happens on Tuesday 16 Sept at 12PM EST. Are you joining me?

That paper looks strangely familiar! lol... we all seem to manage to collect so much of it! My desk is the one area that I still need to get to but will shortly. I am thinking of making it my procrastination challenge hosted by Virtually organized! It is such an important area! A lot of our life line is there, our finances for the most part!

I am hoping to be able to post pics later this weekend of my laundry closet. I have not been able to do quite as much with the baby being here but still have managed to keep up the journey of decluttering! The momentum is still there! Again, thank you for your motivation and encouragement!!!!!

Honestly, I have not even looked at the files in my filing cabinet. The top drawer is stuff from my daughter (I think) and so my plan is to put it in a box and then start fresh . No clue as to what's in the bottom drawer. :-(

Thanks for your example though.

Can hardly wait to see your laundry area. I hate the look of my laundry area right now a table is piled with clothing but I am going to be folding and putting it all way this weekend.
It feels good to get rid of stuff!!!!!
