It has been a week since I’ve started this Decluttering Challenge and I have to say so far so good! Don’t get me wrong it started off rough, I had to get use to focusing on one thing or a certain amount of time. 30 minutes doesn’t sound like much, but when there are many different things going on it is easy to quit one thing and start something else, or just taking a nap:).
I started off in the kitchen and it took me about two days to get the kitchen where I wanted it. I still have to finish off the cabinets, but I’m waiting until my husband is off from work to help me tackle it. I have have spent more than 2 hours each day in the kitchen. I then tackled Dereon’s room I sorted out the clothes he no longer can fit, the summer from the fall clothes, and little toys and objects that had taken over his dresser. I still have to work on his closet.
I have not started the “master” bedroom because I am dedicating all of next week, yes ALL of my decluttering time next week for that special project.
Overall I’m so happy I’ve started this challenge and as odd as it may sound I have found out so much about myself and my family since starting the journey. It’s very important to remember that it’s OK to giveaway and throw away items. I promise you will thank me later. Until next week…
