    I have intentions for the month so I thought I would get started.
    [ ] My closet and dresser drawers. Still too many clothes
    [ ] Under the kitchen sink
    [ ] Craft/sewing area (this will be a total reorganization), which will be hard b/c I just might need that.

    I should be able to accomplish that with in the month of February since I will be a my mom's for a week.

    thanks for getting us started Jody.
    I am behind at the moment, combination of been too busy and the fact that it is too hot. Hoping to get things if not some planning for decluttering.

    Didn't get much done in Jan since we were all sick at one time or another during the month.
    Large trash bag of donations setout today for donation pick up. Goal is to have at least 1 large trash every other month for donation pick up.

    This month I am bound and determined to get our master closet reorganized so I can stores some totes in there and get them out of the master bedroom.

    February is a short month, so I better get moving! My plan is to organize underneath the bathroom sink and get a new storage basket for there. The current one is wicker, and has broken rattan pieces, and Dayquil spilled in there and created a jelly-like mess that is impossible to clean with the wicker. I would also like to sort through my winter clothes. There is so much that I have not worn for whatever reason (too small, too itchy, out of style, etc) best just to donate it.

    My mission to use what I have came up with several alternatives to purchasing. Today, while shopping at Michaels, Family Dollar, ect. I found myself putting things back, b/c I thought of something I already had. For example, chair pads for the legs on my kitchen chairs trying to find something to put in my hallway after I get it painted. I was measuring everything. Today, I found it! It is a 4 shelf book case that is holding stuff in the craft room and since I emptied so much out of the room I don't need it in there. Win! I have to do something to make it look nicer oh wait I have some leftover fabric I can use. These things always make me happy. I just wish I wasn't a crockpot thinker. The ideas and thoughts have to simmer for a while before I come up with a solution.

    I cleaned out 4 kitchen drawers today and threw away silverware (ones with plastic handles) and other plastic spoons that were some melted and stained wooden spoons. Washed up items in the bottom drawer that had been stored a long time.

    I finished the project that I had been putting off for 2 weeks. Painting the hallway. Now I just need to decided what wall decor I will use, that is the fun part. I have ideas just need to see what I like best. That will be tomorrows job.
    Once that is done I will finish my declutter list.

    DD is moving out to share a house with friends. So there will be a whole lot of decluttering going on at our house. She moves on the weekend of March 3rd so a lot for her to do before then.

    Well, since I still have some Christmas totes in my bedroom, I plan to get those out of my room & put away.
    I've been cleaning out the closet & dressers each month. My goal is 3 items of mine & 6 items of DH every month. He wore his clothes until they were pretty ratty. Some things didn't make it to the donation bag.
    Yesterday I cleaned out the drawer in the entertainment center. He threw EVERYTHING in there. It was his junk drawer. I found a 1.00 winning lottery ticket. That will be added to the scrapbook since he was addicted to scratch-offs.
    I've kind of been a slouch when it comes to organizing & going through things. I think I'm finally ready to just go at it.

    Straightened the pantry last night. Allen had put some shelves on the door so I made use of them. Threw some items out but very little since I had just cleaned it before Christmas.
