My current decluttering challenge has come to an end….without me finding 500 things to get rid of.
Last Saturday I remembered some old files I had and found 16 more pieces of paper to throw away.
I gathered 15 items from the dining room and the hall linen closet.
On Tuesday I went through my books on our bedroom bookcases and found 15 books to give away.
Wednesday I checked out the hall closet and went through the bathroom cabinets, which yielded 12 items.
Our master bedroom closet was the final frontier, and I found 14 items to throw away or recycle.
Yesterday I bought a new fan for my younger daughter’s bedroom, so I was able to get rid of her old one that was on its last leg. That brought my grand total to 252!
So I didn’t make 500….but I did weed out plenty of odds and ends that needed to go. Now I hope to be a better gatekeeper for what comes into the house!
Have you done any decluttering or organizing this month?
