That describes much of the last few nights off. It might have been possible to have done it in a few hours, but breaks were needed to retain sanity and ambition (yes). But now the floor under the table/desk is clear or close to it, much has been vacuumed, and most of the cabling for various things is labelled so what suddenly stops will at least not be a surprise if/when a connection is undone. The “rats nest” of cables is now a lot less ratty if not truly organized. I suspect the only way to get things much better would involve Panduit wireways.
Leading up to this, YEARS of old stuff no longer needed was shredded over several weeks. Kwik Trip bags hold more shredded paper than grocery store bags, for what it’s worth.
Found a couple unused power strips, various adapters both 120 VAC and USB, and a Bluetooth headset that still can take a charge and works reasonably well.
The table/desk itself is still cluttered, alas. And the “bookshelves” need work as well. And while McGee might consider the closet organized, that is a low bar. (*crash* sound effects go here…) Even McGee might balk at the file drawers.
While I know I’ll never have the photo-spread ideal of minimalist organization I can at least aim in the general direction. I look at pictures of such things and wonder if anyone truly uses such things. I have my doubts.
Things will slow down again as my “not-really-a-vacation” (more a coincidence of work scheduling than anything) is over.
