I was deep in decluttering today. As a Determined Daisie, we have been doing just that,decluttering for a couple weeks now. A little here and there as time allowed for me to do so. And, it's amazing how much a person accumulates in a short period of time. I thought I was doing good getting things organized, well, today I had to something big. I have been putting things into the spare bedroom. You know out of sight out of mind. Well with the decluttering and the progress I had been making on the little things around the house I figured it was about time I do something with the upstairs ( the catch all room) and today was the day. I started at noon when my husbandman left for work.
I guess I should back up a bit, you see there are two household of stuff in the spare bedroom. One is ours and the other is my brother in laws. He moved out and we are taking care of the place for him. So, his things got put there as well as some of ours. And, a few weeks ago I got tired of moving stuff around to get what I needed, so everything from closets were dumped there. In order to get somewhat organized. redoing closets and adding shelves. And, I have been sorting through these things for two weeks.
Today I took the big step and started throwing away what was needed and what wasn't. This started at noon, by four o'clock I had went through eleven boxes of unwanted items. I was exhausted from going up and down the stairs carrying box after box to the dinning room. Where little treasures were found. Some to be discarded, others to be given to a local thrift store called Angles Attic, the rest needless to say is gone permanently to the landfill. all said and done for the day, I managed to clear half the room of unwanted items, eleven boxes in all. Tomorrow will be anther day. I am hoping to be done by the end of tomorrow. that is if I'm lucky to make it that far.
