week 35 before clutterThis week’s decluttering area is even smaller than usual. Our family has had a very busy week, and truly I just wanted to skip out all together but….I chose to just do something… a tiny space decluttered is better than no space decluttered.

So I picked my bin full of work clothes (the green striped on pictured above, the blue striped one is my hubby’s work clothes). These are the clothes I wear when I am painting or working in the garden. Truthfully besides wearing an outfit for dying my hair every few months these clothes have not been worn in a while.

week 35 dumped out binI dumped the entire thing out onto our bed and found that there were long johns in the bottom. Those would have come in handy a few times last winter…oh well, now I know where they are for next time.

pile of clothes to tossIn the end I tossed about 1/3 of the clothes. They are covered in paint and stains so they went to the trash.

week 35 doneI folded up the clothes that I wanted to keep and they fit in the container with room to spare now. I use to have to squish the clothes to fit but not any longer.

This project really took so little time and left me feeling like I was still keeping my promise to myself to declutter something each and every week this year.

If you are joining along, and feeling discouraged because you are not reaching your goals each week, take sometime to re-evaluate them and see if perhaps you made your projects just a bit too big to fit in the daily life your are currently living.

Make sure your project fits your current week.

52 Weeks To A Simplified Home: Week 34

Less than 2o weeks to go on my 52 Weeks To A Simplified Home project. Now that I am this far through I am thinking I might not be able to reach every single corner of our home but I am certainly going to hit all the ones that matter most.

All the living areas of our home feel homey again, and soon our master bedroom will once again be the restful retreat it should be.

week 34 beforeRight now that means continuing work on our walk-in closet. This pile is what I am going to attack today.

week 33 duringI decided that the easiest way to attack this pile was to move the entire pile to my bed nearby.

I then cleaned the dust off the baseboards with our families favorite all purpose cleaner which I bought at Boxed.com this time around. Boxed.com has great prices on household cleaners, food, personal items and more. Shipping is free on your first order and if you enter my referral code 3W8LE at checkout you can save $15 off your first order!

week 34 doneIn the end this is all that went back into the area. It is a box full of old bills that I just didn’t feel like doing right now but I will spend an hour in front of the TV one night and deal with them then.  I really should buy a shredder, right now I rip up all paper by hand and it is very time consuming.

Oh and if you wonder why our closet has no flooring well…we borrowed it for our son’s room that we created out of what was our homeschooling room. When we took out the cupboards that room needed more flooring our closet seemed like the best place to borrow it from. We plan to put down some other type of flooring soon.

52 Weeks To A Simplified Home: Project 33

More work on the closet again this week. This little walk-in is probably 10 feet by 3 feet. Seriously, I can’t stretch out my arms fully if I stand in the middle it is that narrow, but it sure has been storing a lot of stuff.

week 33 before closet wallThis week I attacked the wall behind the rod I cleared out last week.

stuff to give week 33There were several brand new items in this part of the closet including these children’s items. I got most of them as swag from a conference I went to. I decided to give them away as we don’t currently have children this young in our home.

week 33 veraThis small box of new with tags Vera Bradley purses was shoved in one corner. I am thinking I will move it to the closet where the gift bags are and that way I will remember it when wrapping gifts and slip them in with the gifts I am giving.

week 33 afterThis is one of those weeks where after doesn’t look that impressive but trust me I got rid of a lot of stuff including half a dozen shirts and several broken items.

week 33 done 2Join me next week when that pile that is peaking at you in the corner of the picture above disappears.
