Time for the Week 2 update! If you want to catch up on what I’m doing in this challenge, check out these previous posts:
I have a fairly simple update for you today. The inspiration for this week’s decluttering was my son’s shirt drawer. As he was putting away his clean clothes, he said, “Mommy, I can’t put these away, they won’t fit in my drawer.”
Instead of telling him to just put them somewhere else for now, we took action and I said, “I’m sure you have some shirts that don’t fit you anymore or that you just don’t like to wear that much. Let’s get rid of those until we have enough room for you to be able to easily close this drawer.”
It didn’t dawn on me until now that I should have taken a before and after picture of the drawer. Oh well. We ended up getting rid of 6 shirts and a random pair of underwear that fit him 3 years ago. On a different day, we discovered a pair of pants that were too small. That’s 8 things heading out the door! The pile on the right is going to his cousin, and the pile on the left is off to Goodwill.
Working towards that 365 goal…
What have you been decluttering? Inspire me!
