21 Days to .... a More Organized Desk

They say it takes 21 days of doing something repeatedly for it to become a habit. I've decided to take the last 21 days of 2011 to try to develop the habit of cleaning my desk off daily! As you can see right now, my desk is one HOT MESS!!!

  • Unprocessed mail
  • Grocery lists
  • Receipts
  • Coupons
  • Some Lego pieces (I promise, those are NOT mine!)
  • Who knows what else is lurking in there that needs to find a home
So, starting today....I put all incoming papers (mail, papers from school, receipts from my purse, coupons and other things I've printed) in that basket in front of the lamp. By the end of the day, the basket needs to be emptied and each piece of paper needs to have found a home.

If I can make this a habit in the next 21 days, I'll be starting the New Year off on a good note!

Is there something you'd like to focus on for the next 21 days?

  1. I'd like to focus on making our house more of a home. We've lived here for over 2 years, and it still looks like we just moved in.
