When's the last time you cleaned your room? You know...not the bedroom but like where you are not at the computer. Maybe it's in a corner of the dining room or you have an office all to yourself, but when did you last really clean it??

Personally I tend to have papers and notes piled up a bit too deep. Never used to be that way but somehow we always seem to have someone 'extra' living with us so 'MY' room is most often occupied. Right now I'm sharing hubby's room so I don't touch his stuff. I'm sort of afraid to put my hand into some of those boxes in the closet. He hasn't been able to close the closet door for several years now!! And I thought I was bad. But this desk was already in here and not being used except to collect dust and junk. But I do need to clean and organize it desperately. So my answer would be "Not Enough"!

And you??? How often do you clean your room???

Oh definitely not enough would fit well for me too! I am usually on my laptop, but we have an office area as well, and it gets the least attention of any area in the house. It will have to get some attention soon though because I have to do our taxes... eek.

Not often enough.  We have an office (spare bedroom) and I have gotten to where I just kind of have a stack of papers.  I never use to do this, everything went where it was suppose to almost immediately.  It was rather dusty in there too.  My office at work is another dusty place. I am planning on cleaning both next week.

Cleaning? What is that?

Seriously, my computer area is a huge mess. I have too much stuff on the desk, I cleaned the bottom part a couple of weeks ago, but the top part where the computer is, is a total mess. Papers everywhere.

Thanks for this thread Chutz, I will get cleaning soon. Have a lot of stuff that I always figure that I might need sometime in the future, it is time for that to go. But I always figure that the minute I get rid of it, is the minute that I am going to need it. Yeah, right?!?

Have a great day everybody,

Hugs, Karen

DH and I each have an office, I'm sure the health dept would condemn his if they saw it. I keep the door shut and do not go in there for health reasons. skull
I use my laptop here in the family room so I can sit on the couch and be comfy, if I had to sit in an office chair I would not spend much time on my computer.
Okay, my office, I started cleaning out the closet and purging 4 1/2 yrs of papers after the first of the year and was doing pretty good at it when my cousin took a turn for the worse so when she died I threw everything back in the room cause son and DIL were staying here over night to take care of the dogs. Yesterday I was paying some bills and used my last check in the checkbook so went looking for the new book, couldn't find the one I need. Soooooo, I have got to get back in there and finish the job I started before I have to write another check. I only write checks for bills that have to be sent in the mail so I have a little bit of time.
But after I get the closet finished my office will look good cause I cleaned it not long ago.
luv and hugs

I have a room in the house that I have claimed as mine. It's a combination of an office,
library, and relaxation-meditation room. Bookshelves are overfilled and there are stacks
of books now on the floor. I have binders, files and CD's stacked against the shelves.
The walls are filled with family photos of four generations, that could stand a dusting.
This is by far the messiest room in the house but it is my haven.

My office is somewhat like crazykitty's.  Part library, part office then of course add the treadmill and the exercise ball and all my genealogy stuff!  As for the exercise equipment it is REALLY dusty. LOL!  The desk just gets piled on either side of my computer until I can't stand it anymore and I spend time trying to organize it AGAIN!  Genealogy stuff,fibro stuff, health insurance stuff, stuff concerning finances for my in-law that we take care of---it goes on and on.  As I look around, YES--it is time to do another cleaning!

My computer is in the kitchen tucked away at the end of the counter by some shelves. There was a point you couldn't see the desk or the shelves for all the paper and junk. I kept putting it off because I just didn't have the time or energy to tackle it. Even after I got let go from work and I had all day to get stuff done it still took me a month and a half just to gather the courage to tackle it. It took me the better part of a day to get it done and my kitchen looked like a bomb went off in it for most of it but I was merciless. I put away the important papers and anything that had a specific place to go and chucked the rest. It felt great! I'm sure though that sometime in the near future I'm going to regret it and find myself needing something that I chucked then having to bundle up and go out and get another lol.

Our little office is where we stuff things when company is coming. I have a stack of books that I'm reading or want to read. We have a large corner computer desk that takes up too much room. We also put the piano in there so when my daughter practices for hours we can shut the door. We have a book case in there with 6 shelves & to help organize it, I bought bins & we have them full of pens, markers, all office stuff, tape, staplers, hole punches, greeting cards, stamps, adding machine, cameras of all shapes & sizes. We don't use it for books, we have a big closet elsewhere for books & games. The office has a 2 drawer legal size filing cabinet, 2 good size office chairs one of which is just in the way but my husband likes it-tho he never sits on it. The whole room is only about 8x8. We also have one of those plastic bin-drawer things like from costco, its about 4" tall & has 6 drawers in it-it's full of over the counter, perscription & homeopathic meds we've acquired through the years. It sounds like a disaster but actually it's quite organized. I dust it weekly, but actually cleaning, not for sometime-years.
