Project Simplify- Hot Spot #2 Paper Clutter

Project Simplify: 5 weeks of Cleaning
Oh this week's Hotspot was hard. I have such difficulty with surface clutter. I've never been one to be able to stick with a system or even find a system that works for our needs.
I'm sure the pictures speak for themselves...

The desk is horrible isn't it? The desk became the cath all since we fixed our wireless internet and the computer is rarely there anymore. Sad part is that's right down where we do most of our homeschooling. Pitiful.
I laborered and stressed over this all week, trying to get a little done here and a little done there, and it just seemed nothing worked and the clutter just continued to multiply.
Until Today.
All week long I have been reading along with my Bible in 90 days program and the readings have been in the New Testament, the Gospels and something kept hitting me each book I read.
Ask, Seek, Knock.
Ask and you will receive, Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened...
I hear ya Lord.
Seems what I needed to do was ask for help. Mike saw me huffin' and puffin' around the house mad at myself and mad at the mess so he asked me what was wrong. I told him what I was trying to do and that I just didn't know which way to turn I had been working on this all week and hadn't been able to make any real progress for the stops and starts of handling the kids and all.
So like the awesome hubby he is, he started to help. After putting things where I directed for a while the kids were up from their rest times and he took them outside to play so I could complete my work.
He IS the most awesome man ever!
Because of the lack of interruption I was able to complete my task! YAY!!
Look!! Isn't it beautiful?!

Everything is cleared off and put in its proper place or discarded. The only thing I still need to do is label my folders in my folder box (that I already had and discovered while cleaning!) so that I can continue to keep things nice and neat.
But I am so excited, its done. And all I needed to do all along was ask for a little help.
