One clean mofo

And... done!

Ok, ok, I'm not actually done. But I did just accomplish a huge amount of cleanup and reorganization in my room. It wasn't all necessarily stuff that shows in obvious, visible ways, but trust me when I say things are much, much better now. For instance, I had a stack of old bills going back to November 2004 that had all been paid and then just, well, dumped in a pile. So I sorted them and filed them away by month, so now I can pull 'em up when I need them - or even better, not. But while it took a while and only ended up cleaning off a corner of my desk, it was a decent amount of work and did lead to some nice improvements.

I even took pics! (I, uh, found my camera while cleaning. If anyone was wondering why I had stopped taking pics... well... yeah.)

Cleanup: room Cleanup: nightstand Cleanup: desk
My room, as far back as I could get it. (The camera doesn't have the greatest wide-angle mode. Like none, to be more exact.) Note the made bed, the bedside nightstand that is actually visible, the desk that can be seen... nice, huh? A closer look at the nightstand. Until tonight, you couldn't see it through the various papers and books and whatever. It still needs cleaning, but I pulled a good 3-4 inches worth of stuff off of it, which is a good start. Note my hanging file holder, in which my bills (and other important docs) have been sorted and separated by month. A closeup of my desk. Check out my sweet monitor, the wireless kb and mouse, and most important, the fact that it's not completely covered. Much like the nightstand, it had not been visible before I began my cleaning.

There's a bunch more stuff, but that's all I took pics of. I'm getting pretty tired, so I'm going to wrap it up, wind down, clean myself up, etc. W00t! Most productive day I've had at home for months, if not longer.

Update: More pics! The trash bags I filled up, and the 2 bags of clothing I'm going to be donating. (i.e. proof I actually did stuff!)

Cleanup: trash Cleanup: donations
The trash bags I filled up cleaning out my room. 6 bags, and some other assorted junk. I also retired 1 and a half bags worth of clothing, which I'll donate somewhere. (Just have to figure out where.)
