Clutter Glutton, 31 Days Self-Scrutiny

Tami, of Thrift Shop Commando, is constantly finding new themed writing challenges for her blog. One, The A-to-Z Challenge, I did both on SpyGirl and On the Edge last April. She brought the 31 Days challenge to my attention and I'm giving it a go here on The Glutton.

My theme?
Dealing with my clutter at Walgrove Manor, specifically the clutter in the living room.
(Baby steps).

I'm not attempting minimalism, by any means (I can't live that way). What I want is some tidiness. I'm hoping to force myself into accountability by posting my process (progress?) here.
Today I signed up for a decluttering e-course called 27 days of Feng Shui with Katie Rogers. It's 27 days of emails that I hope will help me get things sorted. I'll be using the exercises there as a springboard for what I will write here. [Update, 10/2: During my work-week I've fallen into a rhythm of morning photos, sketching, decluttering, then creating the post during my lunch break, with final finessing that night or the next morning. Hope it's not too confusing to have the dates in the journal one day earlier than the post.]

This post will function as my table of contents for the 31 Days of October.

It all begins 10/01.
