Decluttering Like Mad

I’m still decluttering and am thoroughly enjoying myself.

Over the weekend I went through my pile of CD’s that I have collected over years. These CD’s are PC related. So software, drivers, games, upgrades…that sort of thing.

Even if I say so myself, I have kept some rubbish.

Thing is, you load the software and safely store the CD away. Years later the software is out of date but you’ve kept the CD!

No longer!

I dumped all the ones I no longer need.

The photo is a bit dark but trust me…there are about 20 CD’s in that picture.

Then Sunday and yesterday, I went through my filing cabinet.

This is the cabinet where I keep all my ‘household’ documents like insurance, car, policies, tax, savings, etc.

It took me 3 hours to complete but I must have thrown away at least 500 pages of paper. It felt really good throwing most of it into the recycling. Some I shall have to shred.

I’m looking around thinking…right what’s next?

    I’m impressed! I did this at the end of last year, and scanned any paper I needed into the computer which is stored in my free Evernote account. So I do have a paperless office, thanks to my whiteboards. Not counting multiple post it notes of course!

    In America, we have a TV show called “Hoarders” about (as you can imagine) people who can’t part with their old/unused belongings. I guess what you’re telling us is that there’s no chance you’ll ever wind up on that program…

    Hey Andrew, Even i try to declutter once an year, but you know for me it is one of the most dreaded tasks, I am emotionally attached to my old things and really dont like to throw them away. I am perfect gfor the “Hoarders”, sonny.

    Hi Andrew

    It seems like you actually get the job done, everytime i attempt to declutter in ends in a half finished job with more mess than i start with.

    I recently went through my loft in an attempt to get rid of all the rubbish i had been habouring, all i effectively did was move things around Lol

    Whether you work at home or in the office, you need a clutter-free area to do your best work. You can still keep your resources, office supplies and accessories at hand, provided you keep everything organized.
