Project Simplify

Tomorrow I’m joining Project Simplify on Simple Mom. Only Tsh could inspire me to tackle a declutering project with enthusiasm and I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and clear the clutter from five different “hot spots” around the home.

I’ll admit, I need help. Serious help. It’s embarrassing, really. Behold, our office/library:

Holy Cow
. I know. Those cardboard boxes on the floor? They’ve been there since we moved fourteen months ago. (oh the shame) My plant is even wilting, it is so depressed.

Our main floor is pretty clutter-free, and we’ve put some effort into making that part of our home a haven, but the office is a sadly neglected area. Located at the top of our main staircase, it’s an easy dumping ground for anything and everything that is uncluttered from downstairs.

Tsh calls this default catch-all area a ‘hot spot’ — and boy oh boy, is my home office ever sizzling.

Anyway, I’ve had it. The office is a spacious, well lit room with a view out over our maple woods. It deserves better. I may not get around to organizing five hot spots, but I am determined to spruce up this one room.

Oh, and be sure to check back in a few days (weeks?) to see the grand transformation of my home office.

PS. Did I mention there are going to be giveaways?
