Late Night Fun Idea #1

January 24, 2010

Refrigerator with everything stuck on the front


I’m receiving the coolest comments on this blog, including those who share their current organizing successes.   

Last night I had a fun idea…why don’t we all unclutter the same area and then report on our outcomes?    

We can start with something small and even if you’ve recently gone through it, we often become more discerning about what we wish to keep the second time around.  

I’m beginning with my refrigerator!  Not the contents inside but the magnets, photos, memo pads, clips and other things I’ve got hanging on the doors.   The first photo is with everything I had on the front and sides of the refrigerator.  The next photo is the front after I uncluttered.  There are four more items on its’ side.  I put five photographs into my “Photo Scan” box as the current pictures are posted.  I realized I have not used the clips in more than a year and I had excess magnets.  Total tally:  37 items originally on the refrigerator and 14 after culling.  I’m donating 18 items.  

Take a look at yours, figure out if you can reduce what’s on it, and send me your results!
