Today I am decluttering the all purpose counter of our mudroom area.
I call it the all purpose counter because it serves a lot of purposes; too many purposes. It holds our second bread machine, our printer, our electric pencil sharpener, our phone, our extra paper, and a whole lot more. Needless to say it gets cluttered fast.
I was surprised that it didn’t take all that long to organize. I think 21 weeks in to the 52 week project I have finally found a good decluttering system.
I threw away a grocery bag of garbage and found one or two things to give away.
I quickly discovered that most of the mess was made by things my husband is using on his current handyman project. I grabbed a box and threw it all in there for him. I kept it on the floor for him so that it is near the project he is currently working on. I find when I give my husband’s project stuff a box to land in it really does help him to not only find what he needs when he needs it but also keep what he needs in one place.
Doesn’t that look much better? I am hoping I can do a better job of keeping it up, especially in the summer time when visitors pass this area of our home on their way out to the backyard very frequently.
