Can i join in?
: im doing some hardcore de-cluttering today
earlier today i went through all of the kids video's and DVD's. we have collected quite a few over time. my son was pretty shocked when i told him we were getting rid of all but a very few VHS, but i assured him that if there were any that he felt he couldn't live without we would DL or find on DVD. im over having so much plastic stuff in the form of VHS. we still have a lot of DVD's, but they take up a lot less space and we do watch them as we dont have "TV" after that i went through all of the kids books on the livingroom book shelf. im the last person to get rid of books, but we have accumulated a lot, mostly thrift shop books and not all of them are ones i like. i try to keep books in the living room that relate to the season, so im cleaning out all of our winter books to make room for spring! also de-cluttered those books to the ones that we really love. it felt good! i realized about 50% of the books that were on the shelf i dont really like, so those ones went into the thrift shop pile. i let the kids check to see if there were any that they love and my son picked one. thats it.
i also de-cluttered while i was putting the laundry away. we have WAY too many clothes.. mostly becaus emy thrift shop has so much great stuff and always cheap. but im not going to keep doing so much laundry. it makes me
: i got rid of quite a lot and thats just from stuff that i just washed. a few days ago i did my daughters closet. my clothes are already very minimal. i actually need a few things, but my baby daughter has a ton. she has inherited all of my daughters stuff, a lot of my friends & nieces stuff..and then of course thrift store. i like shopping so its hard for me, but im going to try not to buy new stuff. even if its used new.
i need to do 15 minutes in the bedrooms downstairs too. after lunch im going to tackle those.
