"Same area about 2004. He has expanded into the three surrounding cubes which are almost as bad."

My desk is heading towards CLEAN!

What time is it?


There is time yet today!

I'm not horrible on floor piles, but I do have stacks of wire hanging file crates sitting here in the middle of my office.

Plus a big, huge laundry-basket sized container filled with paper going back for YEARS.

That's gotta go.

Those pix look like every surface over which my father has dominion.

I have my share of piles, but we're working on it. I still don't have a good system for processing mail in the new office. Too easy for piles to accumulate like they did before we remodeled. Ugh.

What kills me are "wallets" -- containers or files of any sort that have bazillions of pieces of paper which need to be examined and evaluated individually for their tossability. I find them uniquely discouraging before I process them, and I feel like a million bucks when they're done.

That laundry basket-sized container of yours is a big ol' honkin' wallet.

It's a big ol' honkin' wallet for sure.
