Hola! how we all doing in LJ land? I have mostly eaten by assignments and uni again. Once big one handed in Monday and the dreaded group project now due next week. Had The Group round here this morning for Discussion and Planning etc, which meant getting up Early to TIDY liek the WIND, or at least make downstairs presentable. Plan was to meet for a couple of hours then I would be off to riding lesson at 1.

Lesson was cancelled tho, so we went on til about 2 and I suddenly had A Suprise Free Afternoon. Since I had already done Some Cleaning and, inspired by reading http://unfuckyourhabitat.tumblr.com/ , which is a bit like a very sweary Fly Lady (and not so obsessed with shiny sinks) I thought I Will Tackle The Bedroom! The theory is you clean for 20 mins, break for 10 then go again. And take photos. And thus, I give you, The Great Bedroom Unfucking! It is actually not quite finished, but as you will see, there is PROGRESS...

Welcome to my bedroom! It is under all of that somewhere...

The bottom shelf of the bookcase has been EATEN by stuff. Also it is kinda hard to get to, which does not make me happy

Stuff. Stuffed down the side of the bed

Here be... fuck knows what tbh. Could be dragons, could be anything in there really...

So Cleared floor, found many books and a Mountain of washing. 20 mins (or so) later, it looked like this!

Floor! there is FLOOR! and a mountain of washing to do... (mainly bedclothes from spare room, because CATS)

More Floor! I could now, if I wanted, WALK AROUND THE BED! It's a crazy world.

More floor! Tho also more Stuff to be Cleared. Also, manymany books found around the bed during the process

BOOOOKS All ready to go back to the book case!

That was Session 1. Followed by taking Washing Mountain down to kitchen, putting on wash then back upstairs to strip bed, change sheets and burrow my way through to my final goal, the bookcase!

Washing mountain transferred to kitchen (in red basket is load done this morning)

Fresh lovely bed! and FLOOOOR! also boots that don't fit in shoe bit of wardrobe. But I think they can be allowed to stay. Must get hoover up tho

A Very Confused Cat. Also the extra shelf from the wardrobe which really should go up to the attic or something. Final Pile O' Stuff to be sorted

And finally, the ultimate goal was attained - ACCESS TO THE BOOKCASE

Also have transferred 2 loads of washing to dryer and got another in wash. Also rode horse! Next, dinner I think. Tho do need to get hoover up while there is a brief window of Clean Floor...

But all in all, I am feeling Quite Accomplished with all that!

ETA I have now HOOVERED THE STAIRS AND THE BEDROOM FLOOR! AND put dinner on.. A winner is so very much me!

That is a bloody big accomplishment. Well done.

I totally need to do that on mine right about now. Also apply for jobs. And write all the things. And do the stuff for my sister's wedding. And book the flights and hotels for my dad. And... OMG. Have a melt down ;p

That must be soooo satisfying!

I have to admit I don't have that bad a clutter problem, but I never seem to get round to vacuuming anyways. Quite a flaw with two furry monsters who never goes out...

So I spent 4 hours on Sunday dusting EVERYTHING, vacuuming and mopping the floors (not a square inch of carpet in the entire flat). Cats weren't quite sure what hit them :p

Your post has inspired (shamed) me into doing much the same with my bedroom this weekend! Tho maybe without photos.

I think my clutter problem would be improved if once I had identified the clutter I managed to actually take it to the charity shop/bins - rather than being in an increasingly large pile in the corner.

mine is long over due! that unfuckyourhabitat tumblr thing was the main inspiration tho ;)

the Box you can see in a couple of the pics under the window is full of books and things to go to charity and has been there since... august?

Stupid thing is that there are charity clothes bins right by where I work, yet I ALWAYS forget to put the clothes in the car and actually take them. Even if I did get them in the car I'd probably drive around for months with them in the car like some crazy bag lady (like I did last time I had to take stuff to the bottle bank)

Reading the Unfuckyourhabitat thing now tho, looks good!

Excellent work. Please to be starting in on my place now? Also, I'm so jealous of your little washer/dryer setup. I have to walk down flights of stairs to a dark basement to use a barely functioning set for which I pay $3.25 per teeny tiny load.

heh, still PLENTY to do here! That is actually washer/dishwasher (MYFAVOURITEAPPLIANCEEVER), the dryer is out in the garage, but there are no steps involved at least!
