Cleaning Update 6-8-2010

What I cleaned today:
  • all the kitty puke
  • 1 load of dishes
  • 3 loads of laundry and now have 3 clean comforters
  • "light" vacuuming
I have found new umph and motivation from the book I started reading last night called The Happiness Project.  Gretchen has interesting thoughts on classifying clutter.  She also has 2 interesting ideas which I may implement:
  1. The One Minue Rule - if you can do it in less than a minute, do it now: pickup and throw away all the dryer sheets around the apartment, find all of the mouse pieces and assemble them in one place, etc.
  2. The evening tidy - Spend 10 minutes every evening tidying things up.
I need to make the time to actually drop off the recycling which made it to the back of my car several days ago.  No luck on that front yet.

Also, it will soon be time to tackle paper clutter again, it's getting unwieldy.
