frontierpsych, I'm only organized b/c my computer is in a central location in my home and I keep the window for this thread open throughout the day so I can update as I'm putting things in the trash/ recycle/ donate piles.  Plus, keeping good "records" keeps me motivated b/c I'm very Type A.  Knowing exactly what I'm decluttering and where it's going keeps me on top of things b/c I like to see it all listed out.  It keeps me wanting to add to that list and get ever closer to my goal.  It's definitely my personality.  I take pleasure in making lists and crossing off items or tasks.

 

Well, right now, I'm taking a few days break from decluttering b/c DH's grandparents are in from out-of-state.  The control freak in me wants to keep going and not lose my mojo, but I think it would be off putting to them.  If I can get a few things collected, I'll update my progress.



I'm a type A too, which is why I would love to be able to create nice little lists... I'm all about lists and charts and graphs and stuff, lol!

 

But really, my husband is very type B, and I think that keeps me grounded and not making lists about everything. When he was in Iraq I had a big chart hanging in my bedroom to track my weight loss and all my measurements. That's a little OCD for ya!

Well Im not going to make it...

I did a final sweep/major clean where I pulled EVERYTHING out of corners, cuboards, closets, dressers, under beds, off shelves, cleaned the area and put back only certain items. The house looks GREAT, the holdiday decorations have been released, and the count is up to {drum rol}

Counting 20 items... I was gone a week and tossed somethings at that location

Came home and while I was back needed to clear a place to put the xmas tree (yes it was that bad)

 

 

DS has a laundry basket of DVD's and nintendo games for the resale shoppe.  This is never-ending plus I think he is ready to let go of the primary books finally. I am so not ready for the holidays...

 

Right now I am counting 20 toward my goal....
