Day 29: Last two desk drawers looking pretty

Got through the last two drawers quickly. Recycled notes and business cards no longer of use, shuffled pens, hanging file tabs, paper clips and post-it-notes to their respective homes elsewhere, and voila, tidy drawers.

Much better.

That’s the last of the desk reorganization. Small chores, easily accomplished in a few fifteen minute sessions.

How I feel: I’m relieved to have completed clearing another entire area, no matter how small. This is going to work.

Strategy update: Followed my own advice and set the timer when all I really wanted to do was change to my jammies and crawl under the covers with a cup of tea. I still need to solve the problem identified last night of what to do with items that have no designated home, like dead batteries waiting to be carried to the recycler.

Next: Tomorrow is Saturday, but I’m planning a fifteen minute maintenance session with the desktop this weekend. More to come on the why and the what of that.
