Hoping everyone is having a splendid day. I need a little challenge, so I was wondering what everyone's top 3 To Do List was for the house today as far as your decluttering plan goes.... Come on & share your list and your progress!!!

As for me:

1) Clean out entrance closet (lots of stuff for garage sale)
2) Clear and clean kitchen countertops
3) File paperwork on my office desk

I know it doesn't seem like much, but I am on restricted activity and just getting those done will make me feel TONS better!!!!!

Thanks for your feedback and for sharing your accomplishments, too!

-Get rid of 90% of fabric stash.. make 8x8 squares for a quilt of all the fabric and clothes I have stashed for a quilt, get rid of the rest of it.

-clean off top of dresser, pack up DH's playstation, reframe my moms girlhood picture, go through bread tin These things are done. I also repacked my jewelry and important things into my bread tin and took a bunch of useless stuff out. I repacked all the pictures from the bent tin to two new baskets with lids, looks awesome and uses up those baskets (that had jewelry in them)

- finish packing up kids keepsake box, SIL box, get those ready to go. Figure out what to do with small table in room

my three things

1) Clean 3 windows (not de-cluttering, but I despise doing it)
2) Package and mail out stuff on my desk
3) Decide which sweaters to give away

Well we went through all of our bills last night, huge task

Move winter coats to our front closet we never use and is empty, thus using our back closet for our lighter jackets and shoes

Our big weekend project is cleaning out our my office. You can open the door and thats about it
