I think I can... I think I can...

Day 4

Sustain: "Keeping the gains and building further progress."

When you have a dinner party, you can't sit back and do nothing. You have to work to keep guests happy, food on the table, etc. The same is true with this marvelous, shiny and clean space that you just created. It takes work to keep it looking that nice. But, you can do it!

You've created systems to help you. I will now pull my bills out of the mailbox, open them, take them directly over to my desk and file it under the date that I need to take care of it. Walla! No more bills all over the kitchen table. No more late fees cause I forgot where I put that darn bill.

Take some time to sit at look at your new space. Isn't it amazing how much you didn't need? All of that was cluttering up your life; not letting you reach your potential. It is now all clean and simplified.

Thank you for joining me on this challenge. Your support helps and motivates me!

I would love to see and hear from you about how your experience was. Please send photos to If you are willing, I will post them all here!


  1. i need a desk so bad it's ridiculous!! all these random loose papers drive me nuts! i love your bill filing system, makes perfect sense!

  2. I consider myself fairly organized. I'm always looking for ways to make life easier and more organized. Our desk has always been a problem spot. I have tried to switch things up a number of times but still can't get it just right. I think we may have too much stuff. I think i'll go through and make sure we need all the stuff. I'm sure we don't. Thanks for the tips.

  3. Here's the link to my "before and after" photo post. I worked on my computer desk area. It didn't need too much work, but, it's amazing what just a little decluttering can do. Thanks for the motivation!
