August Declutter Challenge – Day 14

. at . 5 comments

Today’s Decluttered Area: the six 3.5″ tall, 3″ diameter coloured glasses that hold my writing utensils and an assortment of stuff!

First, I put all the contents on the table.

Second, I sorted and put like with like.

Third, I threw away anything that was broken or out of ink/lead. Into the trash went 2 mini correction pens, 4 ink tops, 1 rubber band, 1 pen, 1 gnarly-broken pencil and 1 cough drop.

Fourth, I put the similar contents into 1 of 6 jewel colored glasses: pens, pencils, markers, colored pencils, misc. office supplies like hole punch, scissors, pencil lead, pocket knife and misc. beauty/health aids: inhaler, eye drops, nail file, lipstick, nail clippers, nail polish.

Done. It looks so neat and organized. In the past I would have put the beauty/health aids back into the linen cupboard or medicine cabinet, knowing that within days they’d all be back at my desk. So why fight it? I now have a place for them, where I use them and they are organized.

I didn’t forget my tweezers. I keep them underneath my computer stand. 🙂

So, how did you do with your decluttering?

    Can you email me your address again? I deleted your address after I sent it to the vendor for the Frownie pads you won…but they sent them to me. Sorry!!

    Yes you are right no use fighting it . I have a nailfile right next to my computer. I have nail polish in a small basket on a table in the livingroom and lastly we have a our hairbrushes on a end table too in the livingroom. We find we try to put them other places but they are more useful in the other spot.
    Great job!

    Amy – sent me address to you. Thanks, I can hardly wait to recieve it as I am looking forward to looking younger. 🙂

    Diane – Glad I’m not the only one who does this. And look, you already had the idea of putting the items in a container. At least I’m getting there. 🙂


  • Did my comment post on the other post?

    This is a great idea – it’s organising according to your style!

    Marcia, Yes, I found your post in the spam catcher. It has been restored and so all is right with the world again. 🙂
