Conquering the paper monster

Do you have a paper monster in your house?  I know sometimes I feel like I do!  He tries to take over my house, even though I try my best to keep him out. 

I am still working my plan to go through every room, every closet, every drawer, etc. in my house this year.  The study or home office was the last room downstairs to conquer.  I have to admit, it had gotten very bad.  It seemed to be a catch all for everything that I didn’t have time to take care of right then.  So my pride aside – here is my horribly messy room:


Aghhhhhhh!!  Coupons in floor needing to be sorted, paper everywhere, office supplies stacked around and under the desk – needless to say not much work was getting done in this office.

These are expired inserts – needing to be bagged and taken to recycling.


After a few hours of work, sorting, and throwing out - so much better!


We can actually work in this room now.  We still need to do some decorating and re-arranging but at least it is functional now.


Wow, there is actually carpet in there!


Coupons cleaned out, sorted, and organized! 


Still need to work on re-arranging, categorizing books on the bookshelves but that will have to be another day.  At least they are on the shelves and not on the floor!


Trash and yard sale pile


Ready for recycling!


So how about you?  Do you have a paper monster in your house that needs to be gotten rid of?
