So, I had a spare ten minutes the other day, and that's the ideal amount of time to deal with these little clutter piles (so long as you haven't let it build up, of course!).
First, my two little piles -
|Lovely - a pile of 'stuff'' in the living room|
This one started with my younger son plonking a CD-ROM containing some downloaded software on top of a dish. More stuff seemed to come from nowhere to sit on top.
A quick declutter, throwing away a couple of pieces of paper and rehoming the CD-ROM and voila -
The other 'pile' wasn't technically speaking a pile, since it was vertical - in the letter rack I keep in the kitchen for current and ongoing papers (it's next to the phone, so it's logical to me!).
There are too many papers in here, and some of them aren't even anything to do with me, or even necessary to keep. It's those pesky other people that live here that are responsible. A quick minute sorting it all out, and it now only contains the things I need.
If you have a spare ten minutes, I'm sure there is a little decluttering job you can fit in.
Happy decluttering! x
