I told you yesterday that I’m doing a “Love by Decluttering” theme for my husband for the month of February, with the master bedroom as the big month-long project. I also told you I would post before pictures today. Oh boy.
I must say I’ve been dreading showing you these pictures, but I know it needs to happen. I need the accountability.
So I’m just going to warn you that they are bad. Really bad.
But really bad before pictures make for even better after pictures, right? I’m just going to look forward to that.
What makes it extra hard is the fact that I cleaned up and organized the closet area of the bedroom about 11 months ago. And it was so fabulous. I really didn’t think I would mess it all up again.
But I did. Not right away, but over time.
Part of this project will be analyzing what happened and coming up with some solutions to prevent it from happening again.
Ready? Let’s take a look.
This doesn’t seem too bad…
Wrapping paper, boxes of kids clothes, a potty seat. Wait. Which room are we in again?
Laundry baskets, unfinished decluttering projects, another potty seat…
Mega clutter pile. Mega, I tell ya.
The kids asked me why I have a box of microwave popcorn in my room. I told them it is in case I get hungry in the middle of the night. They didn’t buy it.
This stack of boxes contains books that once belonged to Mr. RSS’s grandfather. They have been siting in these boxes in our house for at least 8 years.
His side is not nearly as bad as mine.
And now we conclude our Tour o’ Clutter in the master bedroom. I’ll get to work and I’ll be back with an update on this project on February 10th.
Are you working on any decluttering/organizing projects this month?
