I have begun a long process of decluttering. While I like to think I keep my house very CLEAN, it is often cluttered and disorganized in many areas. I have begun tackling them one at a time, so that I do not become overwhelmed. The first areas I took care of were the kids closets and dressers. They now have clean and organized clothing areas. Katie kept getting out of her big girl bed though and dressing in layers upon layers of her clothes. Sooo, we had to put a little lock on the outside of the door. Sheesh. So far, for a month, they have stayed clean! SO I moved on. I decluttered our pantry. And one cabinet in the kitchen. Done. Just yesterday I moved into our master bath. Whew. I threw out some old tylenol from 2003.
I LOVE waking up to organization. I never knew how much easier it would make life. I love knowing that the boys have all their clothes ready to go in the morning. I love that they can put their clothes away because there is room for them now. I love that I can find my eye cream. Yay!
My next HUGE tackle is our closet. We have so many clothes that we do not wear. It is time to give them away.
What are you working on???
Oh, and make sure you have plenty of trash bags, and this on hand…..
