I’m decluttering and organizing The Master Bedroom this month as part of my Love By Decluttering project. And I’m so thankful that Laura from I’m an Organizing Junkie is doing a 29 Day Organizing Challenge this month, too!
I didn’t get as much done this week as I would have liked, but I do have some progress to show you.
Here’s a before picture. If you want to see more you can check out this post.
Here’s how it looks now.
Wow. That actually makes me feel like I got more done! But the clothes in the pile were mostly dealt with last week.
Here are some things that will be leaving the house! Yay!
That seems like a lot of trash. That black bag was actually in the pile with some trash already in it. I’m sure I left it there because it wasn’t full yet, but the next time that happens I will fill it up from other rooms and get it out the door!
And here are some things to sell or donate:
There will be more of this next week for sure!
Here’s what is left in this part of the room:
What I want to avoid: Moving the clutter from the bedroom to other parts of the house and just leaving it there to clutter up another area. I had to say that out loud because it’s so tempting sometimes! Moving clutter from room to room will not solve my clutter problems.
The small box of yard sale leftover baby clothes are stained and/or ripped, so I’m thinking I will cut them up into rags. The rest of it I think I need to just set a 15 min. timer and make myself work through it bit by bit. I also have a laundry basket full of clean socks that I need to deal with. Too many are missing their match. And we just have too many!
-I didn’t add to the pile this week! I put clothes either in the closet or in the dirty laundry basket. Yes!
-My friend Kristen is coming over next week to help me with a decluttering project! Not sure if we’ll work in the bedroom or somewhere else, but it’s a good thing! We made great progress the last time she came.
Have a great weekend! I’d love to hear if you have any advice or tips for me.
I’ll be back next Friday with another update!
