Decluttering Challenge Update
This past week I worked:
-1 hour cleaning out more of our garage
-1 hour in our guest bedroom
-30 minutes going through old homeschool papers
I also worked two hours in our backyard “jungle” and filled five 30 gallon trash bags plus one 50 gallon trash can with brush and leaves that needed to be cleared out. While that doesn’t technically count as “decluttering” it was definitely an area that needed to be cleaned out, so I’m counting it.
Now that all of the kids have graduated home school, it’s time to sort through the papers that I’ve kept and throw away what we no longer need.
Seems simple, right?
Well, it’s actually very challenging, because it brings up grief for me that we are no longer in this stage and everyone is grown now.
But I managed to power through this box, and then I moved on to a less sentimental activity…
folding that laundry.
That may not seem like a big deal, but I have a bad habit of leaving the clean laundry unfolded in baskets for days.
Guest Bedroom Project Table
I worked in another challenging area this week.
This is our guest bedroom and my “Project” table.
It’s very true that any clean surface becomes a magnet for clutter. I have been throwing things on this table for the last six months, but I kept procrastinating cleaning it up.
After about an hour I made this much progress. I first threw away the trash, then put away items that have a home.
The next phase was more decision-intensive as I had to decide if I would keep items or give them away. Those decisions are difficult for me and make me very tired so I had to take a couple of breaks, but I did it.
