Clean and Clutter Free

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

 On Saturday, I finally got around to cleaning out my bedroom at school.  I had done a major clean sweep at home, but now it was time to tackle the inevitable.  Bottom line: I have too much stuff. Thank goodness I had at least cleaned out and organized my closet at the end of March.



My desk was crammed, and I had so many old worksheets and notebooks that I NEVER, I repeat never look through.  Trust me, throwing them away was such a great feeling.  What did I do if I was slightly undecided about a piece? Took a picture of it on my handy dandy iPhone and then proceeded to throw it out. I also threw out every pen, marker, and/or highlighter that wasn't working and filed receipts and bills. Then I took it to another level.  I deleted old emails, old texts, old iPhone pictures that had been uploaded to my computer and just sitting taking up space on my phone.

I was able to be so much more productive Saturday night and yesterday morning because I wasn't distracted by so much clutter - even via technology.

Besides cleaning, I applied for more jobs and helped run a dance rehearsal all day yesterday.  Would you believe that I haven't graduated college yet? Who am I?

Anyways, have you gotten around to your spring cleaning? I promise it's worth it!

Since I'm moving out of my place I've been in major purging mode! Feels good to get rid of things and start fresh, I feel you!

Soo close to graduation!
