The January Cure


I've signed up for The January Cure over at Apartment Therapy as a way to organize some of the de-cluttering mission I've set for this year. On the first day she had us make a list, room-by-room, of trouble spots; and then highlight the ones you think will have the most impact. I've listed them here for my own reference.
