{This Week’s Fly Zone} – The Computer Room

August 1, 2011 by flyingdrunkenmonkey

Our Entrance Way doesn’t really need it’s own zone as I tend to do it when I do the Living Room. Our Computer Room definitely needs its own zone so I’ve changed it, at least for this month.

The Computer Room is one of the smallest rooms in our house but tends to be the messiest. We normally clear a space on the floor to walk through, as it is the only passage from the stairs/ bedroom to the kitchen and bathroom, but the rest of the room is a disaster.

There is a line of bookshelves on one side, along the staircase, which becomes a dumping ground for anything that comes upstairs. Thankfully Lily seems to have outgrown her fascination with pulling all of the books off the shelves so there is no longer piles of books on the floor.

On the other side is the computer desk which is always a dumping ground for paperwork. I cleared this off last time but the mess has been slowly creeping back. Next to the desk is a large chest of drawers which has all of Lily’s clothes. The top of these is also a dumping ground for paperwork and blankets (I’m starting to see a common thread here). I need to sort through Lily’s clothes as there is still her clothes from last summer in there and she will soon be going up to a bigger size. I’ll also need to check what clothes I need to get her for summer.

Next to this is a cupboard which is full of… well I don’t really know. I do know that there is a box of cookbooks in there that I’d like to get out, a few board games, a light fixture from our bedroom that we replaced with one of our own. But otherwise, I’m really not sure what’s in there. I really need to clear it out so we can make better use of our storage.

So it looks like I have a busy week in front of me. We don’t have much planned this week so I’m hoping to get as much done as possible. I’m also hoping the weather stays nice so I’m able to get back on top of the washing and also take Lily out of the house a bit.

So, anyway, here’s what I’m going to do this week:

Computer Room;

  • Dust
  • Tidy off desk
  • Filing
  • Tidy off top of drawers
  • Tidy off top of bookshelves
  • De-clutter cupboard
  • Vacuum
  • Sort out Lily’s clothes

So there you have it, my plan for the week. I’ll let you know how I go at the end of the month.

    Good luck!

    I did our study on Friday night. It is also a thoroughfare to our room, has a chest of drawers with Phil’s work clothes and on top of that was all our linen (small old houses = no storage as you know!). I bagged so much linen up and took it to the vet clinic at Sydney Uni then did a big clean up of everything else. It looks sooooo good and actually feels nice to walk through now rather than making me cringe! =)

    • Thanks!

      Good on you! So good of you to take the linen to the vet. I bet they really need it.

      Yeah it’s amazing how much better you feel when the house is tidy! I started sorting Lily’s clothes this morning. I’m hoping to finish that and do some more this afternoon but still have to walk home from the library and then wash a huge pile of dishes!
