Organizing

I worked on one of my goals today. I am such a clutter bug. It mostly comes from not knowing what to do with something and so I just set it in a pile and soon there a few piles and so on and so on. Today I sorted, stacked, recycled, and threw a bunch of stuff away. By the end of the day the stacks were gone and I could actually see clear surfaces. It feels so good. I don't know why I don't do this more often. One of my goals is to live more simply. The only way for me to do that is to have a lot less stuff so I am on the way to de-cluttering my home. It blows my mind how much stuff comes into the house everyday. At least I don't have four kids in school anymore. Those papers where just too much to manage.
I was thinking about all the kids that are back to school. Fall is my favorite time of year and part of that is the back to school shopping which I don't have anymore. I was tempted to buy a set of beautiful sharpie pens when I went down that isle the other day. It was just too tempting. Pens are my favorite school supply but a close second is all the organizational boxes, bags and pouches available to put them in. I really love organizational stuff so why am I so disorganized? It is a mystery. What is your favorite school supply?
