Another month is here!
I need to get back on the declutter wagon. Last month my cold really knocked me for a loop, then everyone else was sick and then Dh had surgery. So decluttering fell by the way side.
DH got rid of 2 t-shirts and dd of 2 scarves
We did pretty good in September and October. Not sure what will happen these last 2 months tho.
Got rid of 1 dvd (gave it to ds's girlfriend), threw out a pill bottle, a few papers.
I have come to a screaming halt with the decluttering!!!
I was full of plans and then real life hit, will start again this week, I have to.
Getting alittle time to clean in my room from stuff just being moved in here. Pitching some.
SAME HERE!! I really need to get back at it!
Finished cleaning the main bedroom part and got 3/4 of a trash bag and about half a 32 gallon tote full of old papers....taxes and etc. to burn.
2 summer shirts in the donation bag today. So good to know things are SLOWLy getting out of the house. To keep only what we like!
I dropped off a trunk load of things to the thrift store this morning. It feels so good getting rid of things not being used.
Decluttering became a priority after mil died & DH & I cleaned out her house. They, it went by the wayside.
I told my DD yesterday that I need to focus on decluttering again so that one day when I am gone she & her brothers are not stuck having to go through so much unnecessary stuff. The only thing I will not downsize on is my current scrappy stuff. I will not purchase anymore, but I will use what I have (and it's a LOT).
I have a habit of moving the piles of stuff to another spot. I am going to actually sort through the piles. I am a paper hoarder so I need to just let it go.
We went through the family room yesterday. Luke is apparently a hoarder of battery wrappings. Each time he takes a new set of batteries for a game controller or any other item that needs a battery- instead of throwing the wrap/ packaging away he just puts it back into the drawer. We had a drawer full of wrap/ packing but very few batteries. I think teens or pre-teen in Luke' s case eat batteries! Now we have a nearly empty drawer and I need to restock the batteries but at leat the rubbish is gone.
