It was miserable. Now, we've gotten into better habits; we actually fold up semi-used clothes to wear again, and we always fold all the laundry at the laundromat, to make it easier to put away. I cleaned out my dresser so now there's a place for every piece of clothing I own. And it's nice we're not wasting as much water, time, energy, etc. because we're wearing things more than once. I never thought losing the washer would be a blessing in disguise! But I'll be so happy to have it back!
I understand this as we are about to do the same thing.
DH has jumped on board! He always had his little toe in the water but now that he actually is feeling the draw to be in the less cluttered spaces he has joined me.
He offered to take who knows how many loads of laundry to the laundromat and just get it ALL done in one swoop. Then we can clean off the shelves in the room and sort the clothes to see what needs to go or be stored.
I'm glad he's going to help. I find de-cluttering to be emotionally draining.
Support is nice.
I currently have one box and one bag to go to donation.
I have also listed a couple things on the TP and and e-bay.
Today I hope to clean out the pillow case shelf. Yes I said shelf. We have a whole shelf full of pillow cases.
In my dream world I will also get another surface cleared.
