Post your decluttering success photos here!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
There are so many of us on decluttering missions lately...I thought it would be fun to post photos of our successes! I didn't take any before shots, but you can use your imagination. Everytime I open the doors to my cupboards, I am filled with JOY!! I wanted to share the joy with everyone...and I'm hoping others will post too. I love "seeing" what you're all up to! Plus, it encourages me to keep going.

My kitchen cupboards:
The dishes -- I followed Kincaid's advice from this thread and cut back to FOUR place settings. I stored the rest in boxes in the basement. This has made a HUGE difference! I love it.

The food -- I still need to go get more glass jars to store my dry bulk items in, but this is a huge improvement for me. I have a teeny tiny kitchen, and no cupboard space. But now I have room to spare! I recovered the shelves with contact paper which really made it look crisp and clean again.

The hall closet:
I have always had TONS of excess beauty products. I think it's taken me 4-5 different cleaning "events" over the last several months to convince myself that I don't need that stuff. I only kept what I am using right now. For homeopatic meds, bandaids, etc. I kept of course. And towels...I only kept 6 nice towels. You would not believe how many towels I had accumulated...oh my. This helps us to reuse them too. I also got rid of all extra blankets...I have a nice blanket and comforter on our guest bed which is plenty extra.

That's all for now. Thanks for letting me share! Next?

I see we have the same Lane mini cedar chest.

I am inspired. I am going to clean out my kitchen cupboard tomorrow. There is so much stuff that is tucked away and hidden, and then it goes bad or stale. I like how everything is visible in your cupboard. I like the four setting rule too. Very nice!

That is too funny. Okay. I just cleaned up a few things and I'll be taking a bag of clothes down to my local sheter this afternoon. Woo hoo!!! After only 60 minutes of buckling down and getting rid of stuff....

WOW! You guys are great!

I was so inspired that I just bagged up SIX large garbage bags of clothes to go to charity. The bad part is that I have MUCH more to go!
