I am feeling so cramped and cluttered! My whole house seems to be exploding on itself! So I am going to try to get rid of at least 50 items by Friday :) Anyone care to join me?
Well, I have managed to make 4 bags of garbage today alone :) Well over 50 items!! I went through all of my sewing and craft supplies.... got rid of odds and ends that are just taking up space. I threw out old playdough and organized the kids baskets of puzzles, lego's, and playdough. I cleaned off my dryer and the surrounding area. Threw out a ton of old Pampered Chef stuff that I will never use because it is out of date and I have no intention of sell PC ever again. I cleaned out the computer cabinet drawer. And finally cleared off the dog's crate ;) The room still needs some straightening and my sewing table needs cleaing but the room looks 90% better :)
Tomorrow I want to finish in here and then tackle the laundry (everything is washed but I have 8 or 9 baskets that need to be put away and the closet needs straightening.
Have a great night!!
How do you keep track? Everytime I start counting someone distracts me! In the last two days I've packed up two huge bags of clothing and linens to donate, we've filled a giant box with paper to recycle and we are about 1/3 of the way through the filing cabinets and I have a huge garbage bag of shredded paper to recycle. Plus a laundry basket of assorted things that need to be boxed up. I'm sure there's been 50 things in the last couple of days. Not to mention the few odds and ends that ended up in one of the two grocery sized trash bags. And really - it doesn't look like I've done anything! Sigh - how on earth do we manage to accumulate so much stuff?
K'sMama I keep the computer on while decluttering so I can jot down in the thread what I am tossing as I go.
So far have got rid of over 4000 things this year, it's scary how I accumulated all that stuff!
OK will see how much i can get rid of by Friday...
1. kids book
2. ugly glass jar was being used for storage
3. plastic container with broken lid
Ill try, maybe it will get me motivated to start working on things. I'm lacking in the motivation department.
Just went through my bathroom cabinets while the girls splashed in a bath and got rid of 18 items.. All soaps/lotions/salts that my husband/his family has gotten for me I wish someone would send them a memo that people that are prone to migraines can't use things with heavy scents to them, it will trigger a migraine.
