This is the Twinning post for my most recent Pick.
Some of you may remember when I began taking steps to stop and reverse my becoming a hoarder. This is also when I changed the title of my blog to its current title, Maggie Lives.
I wanted to give you a status update on how I’m doing organization-wise, living space and stuff-wise. Last week my property managers let us know that the house we’re renting would be shown to some prospective next-year tenants. They gave us a bit more than 24 hours notice, but I had work/class all day and then went home to confront my messy room. It took about 4 hours, done around a viewing of a terrible movie.
It’s amazing what the idea of strangers viewing your living space can do for getting it clean. This is what my room looks like now:
Of course, the drawers, shelves and binders are largely unorganized inside, and there are a few boxes hiding some clothing I didn’t have time to sort. But it looks great, and it’s a good foundation for me to take on some smaller organizational projects, then return it to this functional layout and state of general cleanliness.
I just wanted to let you all know that I’m improving 🙂
