Let’s see…. how many 15s are there in 3 two-hour movies? That’s the time I spent today decluttering a bin full of teaching materials. This bin was meant to hold binders of photocopied materials, most of which needed to be paper punched and placed into the binders. As you can see from the “before” picture below, various and assorted other items have been added in and around the binders, and there are also two more bins stacked next to this one which are equally as cluttered.
Oh, and last night I hung my son’s art work and certificates for achieving yellow and orange belts in TaeKwanDo on our dining room wall. I had promised to do that when he brought them home at the end of the school year almost a month ago. Several more items are on another wall that I refer to as our “art gallery”. This 15 minutes honors my promise to my son and clears his waiting art from my desk.
