The night before my entire extended family came over to my house to celebrate Christmas I took a large cardboard box and filled it with all the clutter in my office.
I then lugged that big box to the basement and shoved it into the back of a closet and closed the door on it.
What can I say? I was out of time and my office is at the front of the house, people were going to see it and I needed a fast way to tidy it up.
It might not have been the best office organizing idea but it sure made that space look a heck of a lot better.
Now, about a week later, I am still enjoying a less cluttered office and I’ve just realized that I have not yet missed a single thing that I shoved into that box.
A minute ago, when I remembered this box, I contemplated going and digging it out and rummaging through it to see what I actually threw in there.
But I have now decided that I should probably just put the whole box out for trash pick-up or donate it to a charity shop. If I haven’t missed it yet then I probably don’t need the stuff in it, right?
And I’m also contemplating doing it with every other room in my house. I wonder if anyone in my family would even notice?
The sad part? I honestly don’t think they would.
