My cubicle is a mess. The papasan chair in my bedroom is used a repository for sweaters, pants, and power cables. The floor is a bookshelf on its own. There is a large stack of shipping boxes under my desk, which is itself covered in old papers, electronics that no longer work, and forms I should have mailed three months ago. I have kitchen knives still in the package on the floor of my bedroom because my kitchen is so unorganized.

Enough is enough. February I begin Operation Tidy Up, my quest to get organized on a dime, throw out clutter, and reclaim my living space. I may only be able to go so far, as a graduate student with three housemates, but I can get my bedroom and cubicle under order at the very least, and make some headway in the kitchen. This will be my chronicle of getting cleaned up for 2010, and maybe finding a few more square feet of storage space to boot.
