    Came home from work early today, with a headache. As soon as the medicine kicks in I'll get moving. I am going to tackle the cabinet under the sink, both kitchen and both bathrooms. Also, declutter my closet and get rid of the clothes I haven't worn. I'll try to take pictures, they'll be with my phone so not very big.

    I need to conquer a corner in my bedroom also, where all of my books are.

    I organized my dresser top, undie drawer, my 1/2 of the closet.

    Cleaned out under all sinks, and medicine cabinets.

    Organized dd's undie drawer, and socks. Put most of her winter stuff away.

    Next up is laundry room shelf.

    Good job, ladies!

    Buckeye...if you go to the various forums, the challenges are posted as the top posts (they have little pictures of sticky notes next to them).

    I didn't have a lot of time today, being at work, and tomorrow I'm stuck in training for about twelve hours, but I took this afternoon and decluttered both my truck and my work car. I removed all the accumulated debris from about a year out of both. I reorganized all my gear in my work car, and I set up a little "down time" station in my truck, with a book, some notepaper and pens, and a bottled water holder. I cleaned out the covered bed (which has been a sort of moveable storage unit for some time) and moved everything that was in there into the pantry area I had set up in the dogs' room. I swept out the back of the truck and re-set it up for dog transport (which is why I got a truck in the first place).

    I forgot to post what I did on Tues. Other than my general cleaning and getting the house in order for DH's return from business trip. Missed him.

    I decluttered his armoir, book shelf and his end table in his den. (hope he doesn't mind). Polished them shiney. vacuumed the rug and swiffered the wood floor.

    I got rid of-
    -used and unused folders
    -tax return forms left over
    -used envelopes (I was saving them- being frugal and all- but it just created clutter)
    - some of my 'training material' as a new hire (which was tucked in the bookcase)

    I am
    - giving MIL some books already read
    - donating some medical journals to my work
    - donating some medical books to a commitee at work (who will be going to third world countries and will bring textbooks for the hospitals there) with advent of online- and a medical library, I really don't need these anymore.
    - tossing a pile of magazines I'll never read
    - putting away in it's proper place- the check books, bills (thank goodness a small pile for that)
    - filing paperwork that was hanging around. (how does this stuff accumulate and hide?) Things like appliance manuals, etc.
    - hiding- (really good!) the cookies that my husband tried to hide from me!
