We have a walk-in closet in our bedroom, and reach-in closets in the other bedrooms. DH has clothes in the guest bedroom closet, the office closet (a double), and half of our closet. Plus he has a huge master chest (armoire-type thing). He has impressed me lately by every once in a while contributing one of his old t-shirts to the rag pile. There is hope!
Who am I kidding. I'm not in bed by 10! I desperately needed to do diaper laundry and then decided to post the rest of what I pulled out so I can close the books on today!
I worked on random areas depending on where ds wanted to play since he got a little antsy after a while. Eventually neither of us could take it anymore and we went to the grocery store for an hour and a half. I didn't really need any groceries, but we have fun walking around and when he was strapped into the cart I didn't have to chase him and remove him from dangerous situations, houseplants, behind the toilet, etc.
I did one section of our entertainment center and tossed 34 magazines/catalogs. I did browse through them quickly and pull out some pages that I wanted to keep - these will be filed soon.
I also worked in our bedroom and finished my nightstand and dresser.
1 book (What to Expect When You're Expecting)
1 back massager
2 candle holders
1 jewelry box
12 teacher pins
6 articles of clothing
1 huge bag of random assorted trash
4 mismatched socks
1 bag of old first aid supplies
1 bottle of nail polish (again, if you knew me, this would be hysterical)
1 rubber bracelet (for MS, I believe, but I never wear it)
18 articles of clothing too ratty to give away
Grand total for the FIRST day of my WEEKLONG decluttering attack:
