Showing My Clutter

So embarassing.

One of my greatest challenges in life is weeding through clutter. It is the strangest thing: I can organize the heck out of small details, but when things get too large or out of control, I freeze.

Lucky for me, I've been following the Clutter-Free Classroom blog and decided to join in on the Clutter-Free Classroom Project. First up, my entry for the Show Your Clutter Linky Party.

So, here's a shameful look at a few pictures of the current state of my classroom. I'll update with more after I get back in there today.

This is my "I don't know what to do with this" pile. So, it sits behind my guided reading table.

My desk...always a breeding ground for disorganization!
More desk...sigh.

Bookshelf #1 definitely did not look like this in the beginning of the year...but at least I have a plan for this!


  1. Books, books, books... seems to be the theme - that and a lot of paper...hehe. At least you only have few areas of weekness. I am sure within the first few weeks of this challenge, it will look so much better - I am wondering what others will suggest with the books. Last year, I sorted mine by genre, for teaching Writer's Workshop:) Best of luck!

  2. I love that thought about a desk being a "breeding ground" for disorganization. So true. Good luck!


  3. I'm on the same page as you!!! I just found your blog and am a new follower! Good luck!



  4. It's not to bad. At least you have it narrowed down. It will be organized in no time. Just stick to it.
