Good Quotes:"I've been in a state of low psychological energy this week, and have done approximately nothing, despite the fact that my living room is very much in need of help. So I came home for lunch today (love being able to do that!) and just straightened things up for a solid 20 minutes. And, know what? That helped. It's getting the first 5% and the last 5% done that I always struggle with, I think." - Mella DP
You are at the end of Week Four. Our Flickr group has been hard at work and there are a ton of great photos recently uploaded. Next week we move on to decluttering files and paperwork, which for most people is a big job.
Before you start, give yourself a little time to sit in your space and take a minute to think about how far you've come! (It will help motivate you.) As Mella DP says in her quote, a little clean-up can go a long way, so do what you can. (Checklists and Links below the jump.)
