Today I've got 3 little boys to keep me company, so we're going outside. I think I'll "declutter" the flower beds!

Oh Tina, I need to do that too! I've got years of misc. homeschool books stored all over the place as well as other reading books. I need to clear out some old videos and movies that we don't watch, too.

DD will be moving out at the end of the month and will take her books and worldly possessions with her. I still haven't made her older sibs come and get their stuff, but we're getting closer. Maybe when they come for her birthday party, I'll have DH load up their cars! What do you think?

I tore apart the mudroom/entry last week. Touched up the paint, rearranged, and made some space. Need to really go through all the books around here and get rid of a few boxes worth!

my kids' old bedrooms are my next project, I think. I know they don't have much room in their new "pads" but I really want to get their things out of those rooms so I can USE the rooms! I think I'll put some things in storage bins and take them down to the basement. If they don't want them down there, they can come and get them!

Decluttering is just such a never ending job, huh? Every room seems to need it several times a year...

I decluttered my flower bed! Because of my foot surgery last year, I wasn't able to get out there and clean things out before winter came. I was finally able to get things cleared out quite a bit. Now we can see a little better and plan for our next phase of planting.

Tomorrow I hope to declutter my bedroom and dust everything. I'm ashamed to say it's pretty pathetic :(

I got through the pile of ironing and tackled the mending. DH had a couple pairs of jeans that were thoroughly worn on the front, so I made summer shorts out of them. I also remade an old turtleneck t-shirt into a tunic for dgd.

I went through my closet and took got rid of dresses, jeans, skirts, blouses and shoes--took them all to the rescue mission thrift store. I've got more to do, but it's a lot better for now.

Yesterday I straightened the basement and sorted all the canning jars that have been emptied and taken down mismatched. Now they're sorted into boxes according to size and mouth width so I can just grab a box of whatever size I need.

Today, I'm keeping 3 of my grandsons, so they're busy cluttering up the house!

I FINALLY got all dd's papers graded, recorded and on her transcript! I am just ashamed at how long it took me to get it done~ But it IS done! All her binders are emptied and all the paper is either cut up into scratch paper or gone for fire-starter! Yeah! Now, on to something else!

Tomorrow I'll start in the sewing room--probably with the pile of ironing!

I'm finishing up the paperwork and recording for dd's transcripts. It will clear off my table and I'll be able to reclaim an entire bookshelf.

Next is my sewing room. I have a couple of projects left over from Christmas that I want to finish. They weren't specifically for Christmas gifts, so it's of no consequence that they'll get them for Valentine's day :)

Slow learner here; you've probably all figured this out already. :P

BUT--I've been working on emptying/decluttering one small small area at a time when I get the chance each day. (I actually have more chances when I'm not online.lol) The speaker/basket schoolbook area is gone, and I pulled some cookbooks. I will probably peek through them and print a couple keeper recipes, then the book goes!

Anyone else still in this mood??

Every bit decluttered and organized counts! lol

I'm off to finish trim painting so the clutter paint cloths, cans, etc. can disappear from my living room. Of course, once we put the room all back together those books will creep in again... ;)

DD#1 came over and helped to declutter my yarn bin. She took all my small balls from past projects and is crocheting stocking hats for all the kids. Now I can close the lid on the bin!

Okay, so it's not a ROOM--but it's IN a room~ LOL

This week, the decluttering involves the removal of all the Christmas paraphernalia and putting it into bins--and then getting the bins to the basement! Right now, they're in DD's old bedroom, along with lots of other stuff that we're storing there "for now."

I really need to choose a room and JUST DO IT! Completely declutter, give away and throw away. Both DD#2 and DS#4 have things here, although they haven't lived at home for 5 and 2 years, respectively. I've been blaming a lot of it on them, but there's too much of it that isn't theirs :(

One thing that I finally got done was to take all my old, frayed bath towels and remake them into mops. I use 1/2 a bath towel and 1/2 of one of DH's old T-shirts and sew them together. They make the best mops in the world! Unfortunately, the towels weren't taking up much space, so it didn't do much to reduce the clutter.

I'm always in the mood to declutter, however, with all the children I keep seeming to gain clutter. We are pretty organized, but I'm sure there are areas I need to work on. Right now, I'd love to find a way to have all of this snow "stuff" (boots, gloves, etc.) for all seven of the children in their own place. :)

I've done the linen closet. Moved some linens OUT and some to the basement for later use--includes some Christmas stuff, too.

How about you? Are you in the mood to declutter?
