    #2 and #3 are my favorites. I love to purge and I love being ready though it takes effort to be/do both.

    Perfect timing and feeling organized at the end of this project is an added bonus 🙂

    I remember a pic of your workspace from a post you wrote long ago. If I remember correctly, your place looked pretty tidy. Must look terrific after your cleaning! 🙂

    Cleaning out the office is the first thing writers tackle when they coach with me – as you’ve written, I find it creates not only uncluttered space for new projects, but also confidence & momentum (as in…”if I can clean this place up, I can do darn-near anything!”).

    I’m due for another clean-out here. Fingers-crossed I find a few gift cards, too.

    Thanks for a fun post!

    Good advice– I also cleaned out my home office over Thanksgiving. Found a bunch of old photos that were not in the right place.

    I just started cleaning out this week. Already starting to sweat the income tax season. I found a few things that have inspired new stories, too!

    Timely and on target! And you’re right about finding writing ideas. Every time I clear out clutter, I rediscover topics and projects I planned to launch. Your post today helps me kick-start the process. Thanks!

    I need an office!!! The kitchen desk with family computer is not cutting the mustard 🙂
