Clutter-Free Classroom Project ~ Week 1 Linky Party

I hate clutter!

When I saw this "Project" from Clutter-Free Classroom, I knew it would be right up my alley.

Not only because I hate clutter....and I'm rather OCD about certain things....but also because my classroom had somehow, while I wasn't looking become full of clutter!

Clutter = Chaos in  my book and chaos isn't good.

Week #1 Challenge:

Take BEFORE pictures of your classroom - from all angles.  Get all the awful clutter documented forever on film...or memory stick.

I did that and was it ever painful to then sit at my computer and look at some of the messes with a different eye.

Here's some of what I saw {shuddering}:

{This bookshelf leaves something to be desired.}

{Needs some attention.}

{Wasted space + Clutter = BAD!}


{The Paper Monster strikes again!}

{My closet makes me cringe!}

{Still in the closet...Leaves a lot to be desired.}

{Another closet shot...Definitely my worst area!}

But...never fear!  I will prevail with the encouragement and kick in the tush from this Project!!!

  2. I understand the feeling of looking at the clutter in pics. It makes you face what others must see. Good luck getting that closet under control!


  3. Your room looks great. It's just the closet that needs help. Jodi's right the possibilities are endless.

  4. I found you via the linky and I'm your newest follower. At first I was thinking, she does not have any clutter! The closet does look like it will be a lot of work, but I think the rest of it looks really good! I'm hoping the challenge will help me as well :)

  5. I can't wait to see what you do to your spaces. I wished I had a big closet like you do. I'm sure I will get great ideas from you and others.


  6. Other than the closet, I would hug myself if my room looked like yours!!! Good job staying organized! :)
