Day 28: Third drawer neat and useful

Third drawer is a bit messier than the second

Oh boy, this is getting better and better. Clearing the third drawer, I found a motherlode of scotch tape in every type we might use, a ton of post-it-notes, and our entire supply of paper clips–large, small, fancy, plain. For at least six months, I’ve had to dig and dig to find a clip when I needed it.

How I feel: Maybe it’s the time of night that I post here, but I feel giddier and giddier at the prospect of eventually getting everything in my house as tidy as these drawers.

Strategy update: There are some things, like dead batteries, that I simply do not know where to put. Think overnight about a strategy to handle things like that so I don’t spend half my fifteen minutes trying to find their true home in the chaos of the rest of the house.

Next: Start clearing Drawer Four. There are five in all in the tower that serves our desk, so getting close to the last.
