For week 5, I pulled a Queen which means 50 items and because I was so late with week 5 I pulled week 6 along with it and got a 2.
Each week I try to pick an area to declutter and my husband and son brought up this week’s area. My son was commenting that he couldn’t sit on one side of the couch because it was filled with blankets and pillows that we use to snuggle up with on cold days. My husband brought up that we have a blanket chest right in the living room we could store the blankets and pillows in but it’s full of puzzles, CD’s, VHS tapes, DVDs, magazines and fabric. I had to laugh because he said maybe I should use the blanket and pillow predicament as this week’s decluttering project.
It took me a few days to have some time to get to it but I did just that this morning. I hauled everything out of the chest and cleaned and organized what I put back in. I bagged up all the puzzles but two, the magazines, most of the CD’s and threw out some of the VHS and a few odds and ends.
After folding the blankets on the couch and putting them and the pillows away…look! We can sit on the couch now!
I love this game. I have been wanting to clean out that chest for years!
For the 2 card I pulled this week I am getting rid of these two bottles. A few years ago I was obsessed with making fruit cordials and picked these two up at a flea market. I made a lot of cordial but never liked these two bottles so in the rummage sale they go!
For week 7 I pulled a Jack. So 25 more items will be going out the door this next week. I’ll report back after I figure out what area I want to attack next.
How are you doing with your decluttering? Addictive isn’t it? -MM
