My house is full. FULL! It’s been time to do something about it for awhile now, but now that I am on vaca I don’t have any more excuses to put it off.
Project declutter began on Wednesday. I started in the garage, but since I forgot to take before and after pictures you’ll just have to take my word for it. It’s beautiful!
Yesterday, I moved upstairs to my bedroom. Actually, my closet was in most need of help. If I use it correctly, it is a very organized and efficient closet. However, when I get busy I don’t put anything away, and my shoes and clothes end up on the floor. It got so bad this time that I couldn’t walk in the walk-in closet.
After getting the first layer out, the shoe layer remained.
Clearly, I have a sneaker and flip flop problem.
About 3 hours of refolding, rehanging, and removing. My closet is now back to an organized state…
And the floor is visible again!
I only had a couple of hours to work yesterday, so bedroom/bathroom decluttering continued today. Bureau drawers were refolded and many items were discarded. Moving on to the bathroom…I can not tell you how long it has been since I’ve decluttered the bathroom. Well actually, yes I can if the antibiotic/pain killer prescription bottles are any indication
We’ve got 2009, 2008, 2005, and 2004. I think 2004 is our winner!
The medicine cabinets, drawers and under the sink cabinets were overflowing with unused and empty “stuff”!
Oh look! Another expired prescription bottle!
This part actually took no time at all because I simply threw almost everything away – most of it empty or expired!
Everything left over was moved into one medicine cabinet…one is empty.
Although this was uncovered at the bottom of the empty one. Hmmm, that’s a bit disconcerting isn’t it?
The under the sink contents now all fit under one sink.
And, I found my retainer! I don’t think I’ve seen that thing since college.
And three drawers were downsized to using only two!
Decluttering has such a good feeling!
After two days in the master, I have 3 bags to donate and 2 bags of trash. Now only 5 rooms and a back yard to go before the entire house is half as full!
What is your summer project?
