This is my way of doing things recently - late! Actually, I'm not even sure if it is week 2 or week 3 of this project. Better late than never. This week's challenge is to come up with a plan for getting rid of the clutter. I tried to get a jump on the clutter, but I ran into some problems. I didn't have rules for myself. This week's challenge should help me on my next endeavor. So, my new rules for the next area I attack are:
1. Throw away extra copies that I think I should save for next year. I'll never find them when I need them anyway!
2. If I can't put it in an organized binder, throw it away or make a digital copy and then throw it away.
3. Speaking of digital copies, maybe I should start by decluttering the computer. My files are a mess. Now I need to make some computer cleaning rules.
4. If I haven't used it since I moved into my classroom, throw it away!
Better get busy!
