When I did some research into my blog analytics at the end of last year (in order to uncover the 10 most popular organizing posts of 2016), I was a little surprised to see that my post on "no Brainer things to toss during your kitchen declutter session" was at the very top of the list. OK. So you clearly liked this list!
In keeping with my promise to deliver more concrete help with decluttering this year, I decided to go ahead and create a monthly "No Brainer Things to Toss Series". I'm all about giving you more of what you love! My plan is to create a monthly post centered around the specific area of the home that we're zeroing in on as part of the Organize & Refine Your Home Challenge.
Since February is home office in The Challenge, I've compiled a list of 10 "No Brainers" that you can immediately place into the "toss" pile during your home office declutter sessions. All I had to do was take a peek around the two home offices in my own home to get a boatload of ideas :)
THE HOME OFFICE DECLUTTER TOSS LIST
We have about 40 bajillion pens in our house, many of them vestiges of Brian’s pharmaceutical sales days. Problem is, about half of these pens cause major frustration when I attempt to use them.
If you’re like me, you favor a certain style of writing instrument, and get easily annoyed when your pen doesn’t feel good in your hand (or requires a ton of effort to write effectively). Do yourself a favor and do a “pen purge” this week. Get rid of any pen that’s broken, chewed on, or doesn’t function at optimal level.
Life’s too short to use crappy pens.
