This little table is in the corner of our dining room. It’s main purpose seems to be to collect my clutter. Here it is in all it’s cluttered up glory.
In this mass of clutter you can find:
- Thank you cards I wrote months ago, but haven’t mailed
- Coupons – some expired
- Discharge papers from the hospital after Noah’s birth (IN APRIL!!!)
- Christmas napkins my mom gave me in April
- Grace’s baby book
- A newspaper from the day Noah was born
- and sooooo much more!
Basically, I’m dealing with things that never found a good home. Noah was born and I just started making piles instead of dealing with it. I do this all. the. time. I can’t blame it on the birth of a new baby. It is a constant problem.
My husband has been getting tired of this mess. Can you blame him!?!? I finally took some action.
Ta-da! The table would look better without the awkwardly placed brown drawers, but those drawers are there to help me keep my clutter under control. They’ve been working great, huh? ha!
This clean up took me about 2 seconds. Wanna know my secret?
That’s right, folks. I found an empty bin and stuck everything inside.
I do not recommend this style of cleaning!
Do you have any wisdom for me on how I can keep this spot clean?
