I have two preschoolers and a baby, and it can be difficult. It's important for me to make use of very small amounts of time. I am a perfectionist so sometimes if I can't get everything done at once, I get frustrated, so I have to get over that for this challenge.
Some things I did today to make use of very small amounts of time:
- When I went to the bathroom, I noticed a bath pillow that has been unused for at least a year. On the way out, I tossed it into a garbage bag full of my decluttering challenge stuff (non-trash).
- When I took socks out of my drawer this morning I noticed four pairs that I don't really like. As I left the room I took those out, and tossed them in the bag.
- While nursing the baby in my rocker, I was looking through the living room and seeing if I could find anything to get rid of.
I saw a mylar balloon that has been sitting under a shelf for a week, the towel DD used in the bath - I noticed a large tear down the side, a toy that apparently got broken. When the baby was finished nursing I immediately grabbed those things and tossed them.
