We still have unpacked boxes stacked by the front door, end of the hallway and in our master bedroom (romantic, I know).
At this point whatever is in these boxes needs to go since I obviously haven't needed it in at least a year. A few of them have baby gear that will be sold or given away along with several large plastic tubs of clothes in Lucy's closet. I started going through some of it earlier this month to prepare for a kids consignment sale in March.
Maternity clothes will be sold along with all the outgrown baby stuff. (This tub is in front of my nightstand which is also just a few feet away from the stack of boxes shown above......more romance!)
Our house is small and full of junk and most of it is mine. My crafting passion is repurposing but that does not mean that I have to hang onto every interesting cardboard tube just in case I want to try a project. If I do not use an item that I received as a gift and it collects dust or takes up valuable closet space it needs to go. If a shelf, dresser or TV stand is past its prime, does not fit our style or is a hand-me-down we have had for ten years it can go.
I am joining Ann Marie at White House, Black Shutters in a clutter removal challenge dubbed 40 Bags in 40 Days.
She even has a free printable game plan for those who like to be organized and want to join the clutter removing party. We all have clutter, let's attack it together!
Check back each week to see my progress!
