Day 27: Second drawer spiffy, moving on to third

Second drawer was easy to tidy. (Forgot to take a before pic, but here’s the after.) Started on third. It’s going to take a bit more time, as you can see from the image below, but in the two drawers, I’ve already found–and put away–some “lost” and much-missed items.

Finds:  A baggie full of recycled rubber bands; an old pair of glasses in a case; a handy dandy, tape measure we use for a quick read when planning a project; and DP’s calligraphy pens which, amazingly, still flow perfectly with ink.

Third drawer is a bit messier than the second

How I feel: Rather amazed how much lighter I am each time I do this. I arrived home flinching with back pain as I dragged my sorry self up three flights. After nibbling away at the clutter and achieving this tiny success, I feel as if a weight has lifted, far larger than the work accomplished would warrant.

Strategy update: Next time I feel I just cannot do the fifteen minutes, set the timer and give it a whirl. Clearing clutter energizes!

Next: Finish Drawer Three and, time permitting, begin Drawer Four.
