January's Resolution Room

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

I've decided to take back my house. De clutter, organize, and update room by room for 2014. Im starting the year off with the major black hole in the house... the master bedroom. Everything gets placed in there and I do mean everything. One year I found my crock pot under a pile of clothes. I started cleaning my walk in closet out today because drumroll.... I finally took down all the Christmas stuff and none of my holiday boxes would fit in there again. I had my fall and Halloween decor sitting in my dining room and living room for the last 2 months.

Clearing out the closet filled another 3 bags of clothes and a box of shoes totaling over 20 for the yard sale we never have. February 8th will be spent having a rummage party at my house and then leftovers donated.

Between the 1st and 31st I will be cleaning out, rearranging, building new shelving units and cabinets, and organizing my room to fit a better healthier me. The first and last place I start my day is in that room and each day I wake up irritated because I stepped on something walking to my bathroom. Yup I'm lazy when it comes to cleaning my room and I get so upset when I see my children doing the same thing. NO MORE!!!! The better news is I'll also be getting in shape all the carrying, stair stepping, and general movement. I am woman here me ROAR!

    I tried the wear it buy "_________" last year. It worked a bit but I still have stuff I refuse to get rid of. Partially because I was unable to get to half my stuff last year my room is so packed. The other because I really liked some of the stuff I own even if I don't know where I'd wear it to.

    With all those clothes, and the idea of a rummage party, call it a Naked Ladies party.

    Everyone brings clothing they don't want, toss it in a pile in the middle of the room and then everyone go nuts digging thru the pile to find new treasures.

    Good luck! I got rid of half my clothes with the move to the new house. Now we're doing the 'if you don't wear it by _______, then it goes!"
