I said it yesterday and I will say it again: I like to de clutter. I have done my home and I feel great. I am a teacher and teachers tend to be pack rats. I am not one of those teachers. If I don't use it, then it is tossed or given away.
Well, there is a kinder teacher who's room looks like a tornado blew through. She is a pack rat and wont throw anything away. There are stacks and piles of papers, binders, art supplies, craft supplies, paint, and everything else just laying around her room. I have no idea how she or her students can A. concentrate, B. find anything. So I told her about a month ago that if she would like I would come and help her organize her room. She said yes. So for the past 2 mornings before school I have gone into her room to help her get organized. Let me tell you I have not organized a thing, we are still in the throw away stage. There are things that have not been used in 5 years that are laying around. I got dust in my eyes and had to use eye drops when we were going through the piles.
I was in there for 15 minutes this morning and we already had a trash can full of stuff. Plus, she loves it. She is seeing shelf space she has not seen in years! I feel like I should be on one of those HGTV clean out shows.
I feel that if you are in a tidy and organized space, then you are more efficient and productive. You are not wasting your time looking though a maze of things. It is calming and peaceful.
So wish me luck on helping my friend.
