didn't get done as much as i'd hoped. swept the dining room and kitchen, cleared off the dining table, threw away some old nasty placemats and a few other little knick-knacks, gathered some stuff to go to the attic (i'll let DH handle that part - my pregnant behind can't handle that).

I did 11 minutes! I decluttered DD's various baskets of things and organized them into a basket of: people or human-like things , animals, and put her wooden furniture with her wooden blocks to free up a basket for art supplies that I feel comfortable with her having free access to (without "decorating" the whole house).

I will say, next person do....


9 minutes...

Great idea for a thread. I'll be back once I can get the kids set up so that they're self-sufficient for a short period of time

I just picked up 30 things in my very messy office. Took me 15 minutes.

May or may not do more... have a head cold today that is kicking me big time. Off to make tea.

I think I'm coming down with the bug that our two girls and DH have. So tired and my throat is scratchy . The irony is, the decluttering is leaving my kitchen messy....



I think I have to find a place to store the stuff I'm donating until I make my trip over there!

Off to do some dishes.
