Tangled (Not a movie review)

This weekend I focused on those tangled messes that we keep putting off because of the time it takes to untangle before organizing. These two areas included my jewelery and cords for electronics.

Now, as for the jewelery, I bought one of those "As seen on TV" Blingee sets as a temporary measure. I know I won't wear my jewelery unless I am able to see it, not hidden in a drawer or jewelery box. Now they are displayed on my mirror, for now. I will re-evaluate how the jewelry organization solution goes in the next month or so.

The electronics were a jumbled mess. I untangled all of it, separated and sorted the cords. Why do I need a motorola razor phone car charger? I DON'T. All the cords that do not belong to something I own are going to the college where they reuse and dispose of these things properly.



 ETA: I got to work not half an hour after my project and remembered the place that I see the recycle for used electronics. Right there at CVS where I work. Into our box they go! I called the company and they take the chargers and cables as well, not just the stuff pictured. Win-Win!


  1. Hi Heather, thanks for stopping by my blog. I have been following your journey and am really impressed at the progress you are making. My past experience is, chipping away bit by bit gives you sustainable results, so keep on keeping on!

  2. Oh I dread having to face doing this job myself. I have a HUGE basket of this kind of clutter. Great job! :-)

  3. I recently (before the challenge started) sent off a big package of old cell phones to Cell Phones for Soldiers. If you have old cell phones, you can donate to them. It was so nice to finally make space for something else.
