Catching up with this forum and with clutter management
Long time no talk to! Last couple of years have kept me down with illnesses, and this year, illness + travel left me with post-holiday CHAOS. On top of which, DD is now in high school marching band, and keeping up with high school, band season, etc, so much got neglected. (it was worth it --- her band marched in the Tournament of Roses Parade!! I'm very proud.)
This weekend is my first weekend in ages that I was running at full energy level in a long time. I accomplished so much!!! A long way to go, but --- my dresser top has been reclaimed! I can find my jewelry again. Love love love being able to wear coordinated jewelry again.
I'm spot-decluttering the kitchen as well. Those freebie plastic water bottles are everywhere!!! I had no idea I had that many - and since we use our Tervis tumblers, I do not need these. Amazing how much space I got back from that simple, painless subtraction.
DD's room: The challenge I have here is that she is a packrat. Even if it's something she hasn't touched in years, she holds such sentimental value to objects. To her credit, she got rid of a lot yesterday - and a lot that took up so much real estate (like old, big stuffed animals).
She is now motivated by a desire to update her decor to reflect her current tastes. I said we can do that, after she has done significant pruning to the clutter. Let's see how this week goes! Long way to go yet.
Anyway, I am really enjoying the cleanup process!!!! And wanted to just checkin with you guys, and catch up. I will read thru posts, and see if you guys have any great ideas that will work for us as we continue the clutter conquering endeavors.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
