I guess I could just call this “Normal Friend” week, huh?
Really, though, the work that we got done when she was here for three hours last Friday was (at least) a week’s worth of work for me.
I’m so . . . incredibly . . . grateful.
Anyway, the final thing that we did before she left was to shoot a webisode. Probably not the greatest idea (vanity-wise) to do it AFTER doing major cleaning for 2 1/2 hours, but oh well.
We cleared off my dresser. My dresser that has been the subject of more than one decluttering post. I promise, I didn’t pile it up with stuff just to make this webisode.
That wouldn’t be necessary.
This took about 22 minutes. Which isn’t much. It went from piled as high as my shoulder to this:
22 measly minutes. Really. It’s amazing how much easier it is to see things for what they really are . . . when your rationalizations have to be said out loud to a real-live person.
Mostly, there was trash. Trash that started out as “really important things to look at later” like coupons, Christmas ads, school papers, etc.
Be sure to watch the webisode, as my totally-opposite-of-me friend gives some good organizing tips in it.
While I make faces in the background.
Because I’m so mature.
And the drawers that don’t quite shut . . . that’s another post for another day.
I’m linking this up to Orgjunkie.com for her 52 Weeks of Organizing.
Oh, and here’s the reminder that several of you asked for (that I was going to give anyway!) to go vote for A Slob Comes Clean in the 25 Top Home Management Blogs list. Please? Pretty please? Just think, if I win . . . the world will see that slobs don’t “just like living that way . . . I guess.” You can vote once a day. (And I’ll be reminding you once a day!)
