Today I’ve spent the bulk of it in my bedroom, cleaning not sleeping. I actually started this cleaning/decluttering project a year ago. I stopped in the middle because I was doing too much at once. There should be a rule that moms or heads of households should never declutter more than one room at a time. While decluttering and cleaning one room do not remove it to another room. Take clutter removed directly to Goodwill or desired charity and THEN move onto the next room!
If you haven’t guessed rooms were cleaned and decluttered and then the newly decluttered rooms cluttered my bedroom. I would normally take a before photo but I was too embarrassed, the room was impossible to walk in. Half of my very large bedroom was wall to wall give away stuff from the kids. My bedroom would make a good clean sweep room. I started working in my room at 10 am and came out at 3 pm. I was able to go through all the give away stuff from the kids and separate anything that was trash and some things that I could sell. Then I tackled the three years worth of statements and bills that needed shredding. I still have a small box of shredding to finish and then dump into our trash. I need to box up the clothes for give away and move them to the garage. By Wednesday I hope to have the bedroom finished as well as my office which I started back in February. The hubby will be home Wednesday so hopefully we’ll be able to take all the give away stuff to the local charities and then take all the trash to the dump.
I all ready feel lighter and I’m sure I’ll breathe easier once I get the whole room vacuumed and dusted. Now I just need to get the hubby to finish washing the bathroom, for some reason he thinks he’s finished when the toilet, shower stall and sink are scrubbed. We’ll I’d better get off the computer and go finish the shredding and move the give away stuff.
Until next time Good Writing or cleaning as it is today!
