Goodmorning all - thanks for the input Trabot and mama2nicola. I just bought Clearing Your Clutter used from Amazon and am now awaiting it's arrival! I will check out flylady after I post here - that name just makes me smile
Trabot - my bedroom has a couple of corners that are messy that I will clean up. The room is pretty tight space wise, I put my son's full size crib with one of the rails removed up to our bed so that he can sleep with us or in his own bed now that he is bigger. We have a king size bed, crib, two dressers, a blanket chest and two very large dog beds in our room, so you always feel like you're walking over things. But I'm not sure that I could get rid of the furnishings - they all serve a purpose and are used daily (except for maybe the blanket chest, but I love that
). As to under the bed - there are three duffel bags that I store under the bed and nothing else. I'll get rid of those when I get home from work.
I was interested by your comment about curtains - We only have a honeycomb shade on the window which is not dirty, but the window looks very plain and I have been wanting to put up a valence or something for over a year now. I haven't because of money concerns, but maybe I'll splurge on a pretty valence or curtains (I'm definitely not ready to try to sew my own!).
Thanks for the input!
