  1. Great plan for the week. I pick my home office area, I’ll let you know how it goes x

    • Wow Cathryn,
      what part of pick an easy area did you not understand? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜† That sounds like more than a mini mission to me but if anyone is up for the challenge you are, so good luck and I look forward to hearing all about the outcome next Monday.

  2. I pick my place at the table – yes, really, it gets so stacked up with things and I can’t seem to keep it cleared. This is a good exercise to figure it out once and for all (I hope).

    • I found the solution to things accumulating on my dining table. I recently sold the big old wooden table and bought a gorgeous round glass one now no-one is game to put anything on it except when we are eating there. I am not sure if they are more afraid of breaking it or me breaking them. πŸ˜†

      • Jo,
        Snap! My dining table is also serving as my office, and general “putting-down place” at the moment (mobility issues), so what you say so goes for me too. However … Colleen, that glass table wouldn’t work for me – I am the sole offender here!

        • Hi Ann,
          ok you know what area you have to work on this week then. Good luck and don’t over do it that leg has plenty of healing to do yet.

  3. Great post – it will be my kitchen bench – what a clutter magnet it is!

  4. Do you know what? I don’t have such a place at the moment! Thanks to you and your blog, my house was almost immaculate when we had some real estate agents come through to give as an appraisal this morning!! Due in no small part to the 950+ items I’ve decluttered so far this year.

    I spent the weekend reorganising our wardrobes and drawers, to fit all the loose bits and pieces floating around the house, and even managed to take apart our 2 bulky floor fans and store them properly out of the way (my biggest bugbear: I hated seeing them in my closet taking up so much space). Thanks so much for being such an inspiration Colleen!!

    • Hi Loretta,
      thank you so much for those kind words and I am so pleased for you that you have achieved so much with your decluttering. So you are selling your home, could it be that you have decided you can now fit into a smaller one or are you just hoping for a change of scenery?

      • Ironically, we will be moving to a bigger home, sigh. We haven’t bought yet (we’re looking for a sea-change and some land to do lots of gardening – your nightmare, I know!) I don’t think we can find a house that is smaller than 13 square metres – which is what we have now – where we want to move to πŸ™‚ I’m tipping we will have at least 2 empty rooms as we won’t have enough furniture and I don’t want to rush into buying anything until we *need* it. I am looking forward to having an extra bathroom though, just not the cleaning of it!

        • Hi Loretta,
          going smaller than 13 square metres would be a challenge, any wonder you have been furiously decluttering. Good luck with the search and I hope the bathrooms are well designed and as easy to clean as the downstairs one in my home.

  5. LOL don’t worry. Most of the office belongs to my hubby and I have a specific spot in mind! There is a box next to my chair where I often put things ‘for now’ which is fatal. It gets them off my desk which I try to keep clear
