Scaredy Cat Challenge - Paperchase!

So how are you getting on with your own Scaredy Cat Challenges? Look at the MckLinky at the bottom of this post - there are more and more being added all the time - great stuff! :)

Last week my own personal challenge was to get on top of paper clutter...



The Flylady mantra of 'You can do anything for 15 minutes' has never let me down, so I set my timer and got stuck in. It took a few sessions (over a couple of days) and - as per usual - it wasn't as bad as I thought! Why oh why do I always find it so hard to believe that things will never be as bad as they were before Flylady? ;) After all, I've been doing the babysteps on and off for so long that - even if I do occasionally fall off the wagon - it's really easy to get back in control again...



Yesterday (Saturday) I didn't do any paperwork as I keep the weekends free for family stuff. However, I did spend another 15 golden minutes sorting out my jewellry drawer...because I got annoyed when I couldn't find the necklace I wanted to wear to a party last night! :)



I've only kept the earrings/necklaces/bangles in there that I'm actually planning to use over the summer/autumn. All the others have been put back into my (huge) storage box. I never throw jewellry (or scarves) out - for me, they're like the history of my life! ;)



Would you like to join in the battle against paper? Or join in a general declutter? Or do you have another Scaredy Cat Challenge of your own? Then link yourself up with the MckLinky below - we can hold hands and be scared together.

Hope you have a super Sunday! :)

oooh. Scaredy Cat challenges.

I was just thinking (okay, whining) earlier today how I have spent all this time doing stuff I didn't want to do, and it's done, and that's great. But now I've unearthed MORE things I don't want to do/can't afford to do/don't know how to do...whinewhinewhine.

Giving myself another day or so to "rest" (hide) and then will get back on it.
