July challenge - Page 2

post #21 of 27
Thread Starter 

Slowly but surely...

This weekend I got rid of my "telephone table" and replaced it with a white cedar bench my grandad made for me. (The bench had been malingering in my boudior; I like it much better in its new location.)

I also got rid of two house plants, two terracotta pots, and a Rubbermaid tub. (Not to mention the bin liner full of things ready to donate to the charity shop. )

I'm in - I'll be focusing on my laundry/mudroom. It hasn't been touched since we moved in nearly two months ago and is in general a disaster.

I want to get at least one shelf, to store vinegar and laundry detergent on... right now it's just sitting on the dryer. And I want to organize all the junk that's in there (xmas tree, tools, etc)... somehow.

I'm woefully behind already. I've gone though one (!) bookshelf (there are 4) and that's it. Hopefully I'll be able to get some more done today.

Little by little

I got rid of two more bin liners full of "stuff", plus two buckets and a stockpot.

I still have major clutter to eliminate, though, so it's not easy to tell that anything's been purged! : Does anyone else have this problem? How do you stay motivated?

I am totally falling down on this one. I drug a couple of bags out of my closet, and just put them back in, mostly full. Can I have some cheese with my whine?

Still have 1/3 of the month left, right?

I got a lot done yesterday! I've gone through all of the bookcases now, organized and purged (a bit) I also moved the couches and cleaned the baseboards etc. Went through one stack of papers and recycled about 90%. I have two more stacks to go though, CD's to organize/purge and 4 drawers in the bookshelves to organize/purge.

DP was inspired, cleaned off the top of his dresser and is looking for shelving for the bedroom closet! Looks like my August room has been chosen for me

I'm joining in late, but needed the extra motivation to complete my decluttering of my office/spare bedroom. Organized the book shelf, actually put bedding on the spare bed and cleaned out a catch-all box. I'll keep at it.
