What I purged
I've had quite the mess accumulating in my room for the last couple months. Last night I finally went through it.
What I did with it
There was a mix of stuff here -- some of it needed to be put away, and some of it needed to just be tossed. I went through everything and tossed and put away where needed. I do have a stack of receipts left to go through, but I can devote another evening to that.
Here's the end result:
My room has been going through cycles of messiness for some time, practically since I moved in. I get the counter partially cleared off, and then it builds up again. My room was once someone's craft room, I think, and the counter lining one wall of the room makes a great dumping ground for stuff I don't know what else to do with. Obviously I have to change my habits if I want to keep this clean and decorated, but having gotten this much done this time is a real accomplishment.
