Our Entrance Way doesn’t really need it’s own zone as I tend to do it when I do the Living Room. Our Computer Room definitely needs its own zone so I’ve changed it, at least for this month.
The Computer Room is one of the smallest rooms in our house but tends to be the messiest. We normally clear a space on the floor to walk through, as it is the only passage from the stairs/ bedroom to the kitchen and bathroom, but the rest of the room is a disaster.
There is a line of bookshelves on one side, along the staircase, which becomes a dumping ground for anything that comes upstairs. Thankfully Lily seems to have outgrown her fascination with pulling all of the books off the shelves so there is no longer piles of books on the floor.
On the other side is the computer desk which is always a dumping ground for paperwork. I cleared this off last time but the mess has been slowly creeping back. Next to the desk is a large chest of drawers which has all of Lily’s clothes. The top of these is also a dumping ground for paperwork and blankets (I’m starting to see a common thread here). I need to sort through Lily’s clothes as there is still her clothes from last summer in there and she will soon be going up to a bigger size. I’ll also need to check what clothes I need to get her for summer.
Next to this is a cupboard which is full of… well I don’t really know. I do know that there is a box of cookbooks in there that I’d like to get out, a few board games, a light fixture from our bedroom that we replaced with one of our own. But otherwise, I’m really not sure what’s in there. I really need to clear it out so we can make better use of our storage.
So it looks like I have a busy week in front of me. We don’t have much planned this week so I’m hoping to get as much done as possible. I’m also hoping the weather stays nice so I’m able to get back on top of the washing and also take Lily out of the house a bit.
So, anyway, here’s what I’m going to do this week:
- Tidy off desk
- Tidy off top of drawers
- Tidy off top of bookshelves
- De-clutter cupboard
- Sort out Lily’s clothes
So there you have it, my plan for the week. I’ll let you know how I go at the end of the month.
