Fall challenge 3: 'De-cluttering'

So the 3rd part of the Fall challenge (well Spring for me), is to ...

1. Pick an area of your home where clutter collects and put something there to contain it.


2. Set a timer for 20 minutes, grab a trash bag and walk through your house throwing stuff away!

And so the embarrassing photo of the area where clutter collects in our house

To makes things worse, this is where I SHOULD be operating my home business from.  As you can see from the photo, I am operating my business from anywhere but here.  In fact, it took me a good five minutes to locate the camera with which to take this photo ... LOL!

There are plenty of containers already there, full to overflowing, 
'she's a big job!'  And I definitely have to do it.  And soon, as my busy season is about to begin.

Both this corner, and the 20 minute walk with a trash bag will have to wait a few days as I head 'home' to visit with family.  But then, no excuses!  Light that candle, Put on that music, Say a prayer (or three), and get to it!

Your honesty is endearing - I just had to follow. I'm looking forward to getting to know you. Anyone with that much clutter is a woman after my own heart!

I am still working to make my Home a Haven, too. You can find me at #14 - While' He's Away. The link stands out because it has those silly characters in the middle of the title where I only typed an apostrophe!

I am in the boat with you...clutter and not much time at home this week. I was about to write a similar post when I came over to check your blog out. Thanks for your comments. It's nice to know others are reading. One of these days I'll put up pictures of my kitchen...it is 50's style. :)

how did the challenge go for you? I am finding that even though I cleared my trouble spot, it is a constant battle. My family appreciates the fact that I am focused on fixing 'my areas' though and not criticizing them :)
