Inspired by several blog posts I've read concerning clutter lately, I'm hereby issuing a challenge to myself. This challenge is a weekend of decluttering in one room! I'm picking one room in particular to work on , Princess' room. Or what's supposed to be her room, as it's been a catchall for everything and she has had a bed in our room since we moved in.
Anyone who wants to take the challenge with me will be rewarded by less stuff, more space and more peace!
I have to go to the store first, but I don't need to get much. I'll rely on simple meals and the crockpot this weekend. James gets home about 3:00, so I'll have another pair of eyes to watch the kids. Tomorrow is the ward chili cookoff, so if I make a huge pot we'll have enough for a day, at least!
This means that I have tonight and all day tomorrow to go through stuff. Right now my whole house is a mess, so for the next two hours until James gets home I'll be folding laundry and cleaning off countertops. Tonight I'll go through a bunch of junk and load up the van in the morning so I can get stuff out of the house to give away. I want to take another trip to get rid of stuff tomorrow afternoon. I think if I post this for all the world to see, it'll help me reach my goal.
On Monday I'll post my results. Declutterers of the world, UNITE!!!!!
I'm turning on the dance music...ready...set...GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
