I cleared out one section of my craft room yesterday, and I feel i can actually breathe at last!

 

Clutter is so suffocating.

The garage floor (LOL!) I also went through our med's. I found two bottles of the same thing that expire a month apart...so I poured them into one container vs having two. Got rid of makeup I haven't used (why let it sit around? It's sat around a year already, if I haven't use it yet, I doubt I'll use it anytime soon!)

My computer desk. Now it's so much more peaceful to sit and waste time on the computer! :)

I cleared off my desk up in our room; which is great b/c I bought textbooks today for my classes that start next week. Having a messy space would have been a rough start.

I also cleaned out most of the family closet (which is designed to be a home office - I should probably use it for one someday!). It's good b/c now I have the kids' clothes more organized and can get rid of what my youngest has outgrown. Also, it means I have room for the new clothes I've been buying.

Kiddo's closet including all her old baby clothes that I stored for the next one.  I found more stuff I don't need for another baby :D

 

However I just got home from a two month visit over the holidays so my house is currently a disaster.  It was SO decluttered before I emptied the car....

China cabinet. It used to have so many things in it, I hated to look at it. I also hated most of the stuff that was in it (eg. MIL's china that we have inherited simply because we live in this house that used to be hers, that sort of stuff.) So I pulled everything out of it, selected the things I like, and put only those things back. I was even able to add something that I had wanted to display but wasn't able to make room for in the past. Every time I look at the cabinet now it makes me smile. (Even though the cabinet itself it ugly. One step at a time!)

The dining room table. Was trying to eat there all through advent but never made it. It's not perfect but we can eat there. I adopted Crayfish's creed where you have to REMOVE the item of clutter immediately and commit to not letting it pile up. We still have a hammock sitting on the dining room chairs, but at least I can see out the window.

My bathroom! I finally went through the 2 shelves and organized it a little better and got a shelf ready to hang,it's on top of the toilette until I can find screws and a screwdriver. The bathroom looks so much better now and so clutter free on the surface,I only have to go through the drawers now for it to be perfect. It's a huge change from my last place though where I had about 100 bottles of lotions and gels and washes....

My entry way! I moved into this new place a month ago and had a huge stack of boxes,mostly flattened one waiting for a friend. They came and got most of them yesterday and it feels so much cleaner and more clear when you walk in here now. I only have about 3 boxes left and they can be shoved into the closet until their next visit.
