Well, with spring approaching, and spring cleaning underway, what a better time to start getting rid of things to make your home a simpler, more relaxed environment! I have done just this very thing this week, and, oh how wonderful it feels to know that my clutter will be going to someone in need and freeing up space in my home!
In my effort to start working on Claire's classroom, I realized I needed to clear out my storage room for things that actually had a purpose and needed somewhere to be stored! WOW! I think I opened a can of worms! It is very satisfying though, to be getting rid of things that are just taking up valuable space.
The room that I have deemed our storage room is actually going to be a bathroom.........someday. It is actually perfect. It's bare bone structure, allows me to put up shelving and to stack storage bins. I can't wait to get in there to get it all fixed up.
This week I have been really going through things and clearing it out. I sold some items two weeks ago, and this week I donated 8 garbage bags and 1 box full of things that I am no longer loving, using, or needing! It is so wonderful!
My next task in my de-cluttering venture is probably going to be toys.....ugh! I have a whole toy store in my house! I am not looking forward to that task, but am keeping my eye on the prize at the end of it....not having 4 rooms full of toys to put away!
What are some of your efforts to get your home ready for spring?
