In another thread, Mommabird mentioned doing a clean sweep, taking everything out of a room and sorting through it. I want to desperately do this but only have my living room as the staging place.
Is this the method of how I should go about it? In my bedroom, for instance, do I take all of the clothes out of the dresser drawers, empty the bookshelves,etc. and bring them to another room so that all that is left is the furniture in the room? Then I decide what is thrown out or given away and put back what to keep. Before putting it back, though, do I clean the room spotless and move the furniture around, if necessary? It seems too hard to move the furniture out of the room unless I'll be getting rid of some of it. This is wishful thinking but I have nothing now to replace them with. In about 8 months from now, I'm being given bedroom furniture from my son's guest room when he moves that is in perfect condition. I'd love to get rid of the dresser in the bedroom now which I hate but it's useful.
I know I will start in DD's room first. She want to decorate it so we need to empty it out.
Another reason I need to do this is because I want to put in laminate flooring in the condo and need to get everything off the floor before I can do it.
Anyone else want to do the Clean Sweep with me?
