  1. Lots of good stuff here. Two more items on the sale list. Two collectible dolls that were gifts to each of us from the other. We should have never bought them in the first place. What do we need with two dolls we have to them find a place to display? Duh! We weren’t thinking that’s for sure.

  2. oh I just love the mini office. If I wouldnt have a really well running filing system already and if I would own a wooden chest, I would so go for it! Especially the pinboard.

    good luck for your surgery! I keep my fingers crossed (in my little breaks when I am not typing the last pages of my thesis)

  3. I love that you were crazy busy in the same week that I was. The other roommate is almost completely out, and I can’t wait to get everything back in order. Some of it already looks much nicer, but we have a couch where the desk goes, and a desk where the dining table goes… even still though, it’s neater than it was when she was here. I have a donation pile going for my stuff, and it’s getting to a good size finally. Next up will be moving everything back into its place, and seeing what doesn’t have one. I can’t wait!

    Colleen, you keep me inspired to not just be organized, but also to keep everything to a minimum, even if it means getting rid of something that I used to love. I’m so happy with everything all neat and clean.

  4. The chest is really cute. I have one about half that size that serves as my nighttable. To get my “office” into it one day in the future would be a great thing. What a good motivation for more paper/home office decluttering. I should definitely save the idea.
    Colleen, get well soon!

  5. I just found that chest-office. 😉
    I actually own a chest about the size of the pictured one or a little bigger. But I wonder, if that wouldn’t still be a bit of a huge office if everything in there is filled with files?!? (I think that would equal my status quo, not where I’d like to be at)
    At the moment my chest holds wrapping paper and a few (I think, at the moment it’s one?) empty boxes for shipping things. That’s not a lot for a chest of that size.
    Maybe a filing system would be a nice idea…

  6. Thanks so much for the mention! I noticed you posted post number “669”, which was the submarine I was on was back when I was in the Navy.

    My wife and I have begun to put together our boxes of items for donation this week, so this is a timely topic.

  7. Haven’t posted for a while, but I have generally been reading. Ive just been very fatigued and a bit overwhelmed with other things.
    Our home has been getting a bit grubby – I am so hopeless at housework: I find my routines are always thrown by poor health and then it takes ages to get back into any sort of routine again. But yesterday I bought several packs of the microfibre clothes you highly recommend Colleen as part of my attempts to get back on track. I was very impressed with the way they cleaned the bathroom sink and taps.

    Our lodger of 2 years leaves us soon: she has very much been a momento clutter collector and a floordrobe user. So I have been astonished and very impressed that she has in the last 2 weeks got rid of 80% of what she had in her room as she doesn’t want to cart it back home (as her mum is very anti clutter,lol) and is ready to start over her new life. I have had to resist the kitchen ‘stuff’ freebies on offer.

    Hope the op has gone smoothly Colleen.
