Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I'm happy to be doing my first Tackle it Tuesday. This is the desk in my bedroom. It has become the catch-all for stuff I need to file or put somewhere else but I don't want to get lost, ruined, or messed up by the kids. But now that I have created my office out of a unusable closet (more on that later this week hopefully) and cleaned out the garage so I can get to my filing cabinets, this desk needs to be cleaned up!

And here it is clean!

I think the bedroom should be a place that's restful so it's been good to get that cleaned off. And now I can actually shut the lid like it's supposed to!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good job, Jen. I agree messy spaces are stressful. I've been in declutter mode for a while now. I hadn't heard of Tackle it Tuesday, but that's a fun way to take it one step at a time.

I should have taken before-and-after shots of the spaces I've already tackled. Oh, man. Pathetic.

By the way, I like your bouquet of sharpened pencils. Reminds me of You've Got Mail. :)

One of my munchkins, I think it was Calvin, did the original bouquet of pencils and then it got knocked over. I thought it was rather clever.

oh what nightmare is this???? Tackle it Tuesday???? NO! Say it isn't so! :)
I love the desk all clean, but so understand the mess.
The pencils are a nice touch!

Great job! That is something I need to tackle as well. Yikes!

Sarah said...

Looks good! We (or more like my hubby) just did that to our computer desk! It was a job! =P

Jennifer Tiszai said...

Yeah, Diana, weren't you looking for things to help you update your blog? Evil grin.

Actually, I saw pictures of your desk and it was neat!

Diana said...

Must have been one of 'those' days, you know the ones, clean before someone comes over!
I don't know if I'm strong enough to tackle a project once a week. :) But I applaud you for doing so! Now how about pictures of your closet? :)

Great job!

Hey! Where'd all the stuff go?

Heather said...

I'm very proud of you.
Every time I tackle something, *someone* clutters it up again. Not mentioning any names.

Jenny said...

I've been staring at my office trying to get the stamina to tackle it again. Thank God I work Tuesdays and have an excuse.
But I did clean my desk at work on Tuesday--will that count? Will you let me play, too?
BTW, you desk looks wonderful! :-)
