    I will pick something to declutter for 15 minutes today... just not sure what yet. I did get the kitchen junk drawer done yesterday like I said I would. Perhaps I will work on the coat closet!

    Cleaned under my kitchen sink. It wasn't too bad. There was a couple things that belonged in the bathroom so they got relocated. I also wiped down the inside of the doors and the bottom of the area and put down a new liner. I found a little spider and disposed of it. Now everything is all organized.

    For the next two days I will be doing a massive clean up because I am going to Hawaii on Saturday and my dh is staying home. He has threatened to reclutter my storage room and throw everything else away. I think he was half serious.

    But for my 15 minute quick clean I will tackle the book shelf. It is not too bad but I think I will be mostly just organize it.

    There are three big blue Rubbermaid totes that have been in my living room, acting as end tables since we moved in almost a year ago. I'm going to start tackling one of them today. It contains the files that belong in my filing cabinet, which DH unearthed from the spare room last weekend. I promise to work on it for at least 15 minutes

    That's been a great way to do things for me. And not just a 15 minute timing. When I'm waiting for the tea to brew, for instance, 3 minutes, I can get the kitchen nearly put to rights. I like to see how much I can get done in those few "waiting" minutes.

    I did not get to my bookshelf but I cleaned out the turtle tank. I usually do that on Sundays but I won't be here so I needed to get it done anyways.

    Tomorrow I will be doing a whole series of 15 minute quick cleans. I have a whole list written out.

    Did 15 in the dining room and hallway today. Husband's not too happy. His new hamper was sitting in the hallway and I ran into in the dark and nearly took a header into the bathroom. I did not want to have the kids accidently do the same but not be as lucky as I was, so I set up his new hamper and set the old one out to be burned and put his new baskets in our room for him to start organizing his stuff. He does not like for me to make to make work for him.

    OK Polly, No hurting yourself.

    MM-sometimes you just gotta sleep. Glad you had a good nap.

    15 minutes in DH's office cubby today if it kills me. Just driving me bonky. *sigh* Do all men not see clutter or is it just mine? I adore him, but his clutter and over abundance of stuff is for the birds.

    I got the desk top cleared and down to the minimum that I need. The shredding took a little longer because the shredder kept overheating but it's finally done. Today I will do the bookshelves.

    I guess I went into overdrive today. Did 15 minutes each:

    in the bathroom
    in the laundry room
    in my car
    in my craft room
    in my bedroom.

    I probaby won't be here for about a week unless I get a decent wireless signal at my sil house in Hawaii. Have a great week.
