Gosh I am starting to feel bad about having a post every week for Tackle It Tuesday because it is showing everybody that I have plenty of messes to clean up. I promise my house is clean and sanitary, but we are a little cluttery and I am trying to rectify this each week. This week I worked on my computer desk. This is website, bill paying, and blog central so this desk collects all kinds of paperwork from receipts, orders, catalogs, bills, etc. I have to work on it about every two weeks. It will get cluttered again, but for today it is cleaned. I also dusted it, which it was pretty dusty. There are all kinds of places to dust with a computer. Each equipment piece seems to gather the dust. Next week Ron tells me that my project is our bedroom closet, it is a HUGE project! We will see. So here it is, the before and after of our desk:

Hey, I struggle with the same dilema. Maybe alot of us do. That's why we do this together. I actually took some pic's last week of things I wanted to tackle. Well they haven't gotten done yet, they slwoly get worse. I think ny whole house needs to be tackled! But it is one thing at a time. BTW, Your desk looks great!

You did an awesome job.:) Isn't it funny how fast our little 'work area'. Mine looks not so good right now, although I just did the project.
Don't worry, we all have our little areas. Your house is just as clean as mine. We just get really busy with other things...There are plenty of areas to tackle for me at our home - lol. So you are not alone...

I laughed out loud when I read your first comment about having sooo many messes that you can post every week! HA! I've got enouph to keep me going and if IF I ever do run out of projects (again, HA!) then I will let the kids loose in thier room for two days straight and ta-da a new project!

But your dest looks great, good going . . . now for the next "mess"

Great work!! And it wasn't that bad - so no worries. My desk/table was way worse!! Remember it?!? It was one of my first tackle posts. But I agree - it is so hard to keep showing off my clutter. Like you my house is clean - just cluttered. But it is so fun to see the results and to be accountable. I am so glad that I am doing Tackle It Tuesday!!
Way to go!
