We did it!!!!
So, the upstairs is DECLUTTERED!!! 30 people could show up at my door right now and I would not be embarassed off the clutter all over, and I know where everything is and goes!!
yesterday the boyfriend and I spent 5.5 hours straight, doing the loft, main living room and dining room. We found FOUR crockpots not in use, when we already have one!Who knew. Everything is functional now. We threw out probably 4-5 loads for the dump. A LOT of stuff.
So to recap from my first post -
Oct 27th/28th - Reorganised living room. Decorated living room. Cleaned out bathroom. 4 hours (ish) of work.
Oct 29th - Hall closet, laundry room, cuboards above desk, utensil drawers and junk drawers in the kitchen. And under the sink. 2 hours.
Nov 7th - Decluttered pantry, tossed 1 full bag of garbage.
Decluttered the following cupboards;
Above the pantry
Above the fridge
Above the stove
Beside the one above the stove.
Beside the oven.
The plates/bowls Cupboard.
As well as the island.
2.45 hours of work.
Nov 12th - Cleaned and organised and re-arranged living room. Cleaned out, moved furniture in and organised the loft. Cleaned out and moved furniture and organised the dining room. 5.5 hours of work. Wasn't as bad as I thought. But I couldn't have done it on my own, still.
Reorganised MRB closet somewhere in there too.
15 hours of work, over 2 weeks. But we're done!! Next projects are the spare room and basement, and then the entire house is done. It feels great, and we can actually USE all of the rooms in our hose.
For now we're going to take a break from big stuff, and focus on little things. Like better systems for the fridge and closets and stuff. To help us stay organised.
And I probably wouldn't have gotten any of it done if I hadn't opened up this forum. Thanks guys!
