MISSION: Clear Clutter Outta My House!

So today, after being inspired by a friend’s facebook post about de-cluttering her home, I decided to tackle it myself!  I am giving myself 1 area of my home everyday, and you are going to come along for the journey!  I thought If I took on an entire room, then I would give up quickly and nothing would really have a “forever home” within my home…I’d just be moving junk around.  I have realized that we have been blessed with far many more things than we know what to do with, so now it’s time to pass some things along to bless someone else.

My first assignment I gave myself was our cup cabinet.  It’s been a struggle for awhile now with kids cups that have missing lids or straws, too many mugs, and hap-hazard placement.  I cleared it out today and pitched anything that had missing parts, and then put quite a few sippy cups in the donate bin I have that’s about to take a trip to the Salvation Army.

What are some areas of your home that need some purging?  With little kids, the top of the piano has become a cluttered mess to keep it out of their little hands.  I think that will be my next assignment.  I’ve been transforming my body and our family’s health and sharing on here about it, so I thought now I would begin transforming our home in to a better living space.

  1. I just got done with a little of kitchen and a little of my closet. Been so overwhelmed by the mess in the house the last few weeks. What do you usually do with things you don’t want to keep at home anymore?

    • I have a few things in a box downstairs that I’m hoping to do a garage sale in the next few weeks. But most of it has been donated to The Salvation Army, or thrown in the trash. 🙂
