The garage is full again too. It is beyond annoying that this keeps happening. The real problem is the house is simply too small and there isn't anything I can do about that problem!
This is part of our problem. We have a 4 room apartment and way too much stuff. For so long, I kept moving things around but now there's no where to move them to.

The sad thing is we have a storage space in our basement about the size of a parking space which is filled and a small storeroom off sight. My plan is to get rid of what I can in the apartment. Then sort out & organize the space downstairs to make room for the needed items that are in the store room. I can't remember the last time we went to the store room so 90-95% of that stuff is going right in the dumpster at the storage warehouse.

I have promised myself to find real storage solutions and not settle for stupid crappy things just to put something somewhere.

I have my work cut out for me. I don't think DH knows what he's in for.

Good luck getting things in order for your parents' visit!!

It has been a while (a long while) since I posted an update.

Well I finished the trim work in the laundry room today so that is some clutter off the back porch!!! Also, installed the door knob for the laundry room, so that is one less thing kicking around!!!

I am making this week my finish projects week, that way I can get rid of a bunch of junk and get the house looking more finished!!!! Which will also lead to the storage shed being more organized!!!

I forgot to mention that I also got rid of 6 books last week!!!

Not much but at least it is something.

I was rumaging around my shed looking for my paintbrushes this morning and found a box of yard sale stuff left over from last year!! (I will be dropping that off to the Salvation Army Thrift Store latter today. Why it ended up in the shed, no idea)!?!?!

I really need to get back in there and reorganize things, it seems as I do more projects around the house the messy the shed gets!!!

I dont even want to know what my shed looks like. Dh usually is the one that goes in there to get my X-mas decorations. The shed will be a decluttering project for the future-lol!

My extra room is that way. I start to get rid of stuff but its still not done. My shred pile get outta hand qucik. Just as i finshe shredding , another pil shows up a few days later


I couldnt sleep because of all the thunder so i got up to organize my lil cleaning stuff area in my closet. Then i moved to my bathroom and cleaned it. I ended up doing laundry , and folding clothes. I straightened up my closet and got rid of 2 grocery bags of trash and 3 pairs of shoes. This weekend if all goes well I will be getting rid of 1-2 lots of stuff through CL.

I wanted to hit my hall closet and organize it . It hold all my baking pans, electric oven, fryer, crockpots. I decided to wait so dh can install some shelves.

update: Just got rid of another grocery bag of trash from cleaning out my double hall closet. I also organized tubs. DD and dh have a tub of their bath stuff ( mine is in my bathroom) and i organized the tub with cotton balls, face cleaner, soap, shampoo etc

Hopefully dh will install some shelves for my baking stuff this weekend, that way, i can clean out the bottom my my double hall closet and get him to go through some of his electronic stuff.

I'm jumping in! Trying to sell the house, so we have to get RID of STUFF! So far, my bathroom has been de-cluttered. LOL better than nothing! Doing a little at a time so I don't get overwhelmed and so my house doesn't get crazy messy in the process. Tomorrow (or tonight?) I'll be doing the other two bathrooms, then it's on to the offices. Those are going to be a PAIN.

Well I spent some time in the storage shed again.

I managed to get rid of the following:

1 crusty old paint brush
1 paintroller that no longer rolls
1 broken paint tray
1 26 gallon container of scrap wood
1 set of cheap wrenches (as I received a nice quality set a while back)
3 12 gallon empty storage containers
7 Red stacking trays that were used for storage of misc items
1 broken faucet (why did I keep this in the first place)
1 used light fixture
5 small plastic garbage buckets (too small to use in the house and why do I have them to start with???)

Used up a partial gallon of paint from the cellarway for my porch trim
Used up the rest of the trimwork for the front porch (Back porch has now been decluttered)

I know not so much progress in the house but any clutter removed from my property feels good!!! At least now I can find the needed tools to complete work around the house

Now off to finish more home projects and use up/get rid of small piles of materials from all over.

I find doing one small area at a time is easier for me, otherewise being all over the places overwhelms me. Starting off small, you will get more finshed.

Great job! I find that I feel a lot better having less clutter. I use to have lots of angel knick knack i got as gifts and just knick knacks all over, papersin drawers etc. After etting rid of all that I can walk into the dnning area or living room and it just feels so much more open and peaceful. My home was never messy .....sometimes less just means more peace-lol!

lol! I seen a lil comic say...it said something like take forever to clean but have guest coming over and its amazing how much cleaning you can get done in 10 mins.-lol! It was along those lines,,,,so true-lol!


I've been visualizing a declutter spareroom and a clean organized garage. Lil by lil it will happen.As far as yardsales I hate having those and its way to hot!

-------------------
update:
another bag of toys sold and its one less bag of stuff taking up room. I have a meet up tomorrow for another bag of clothes . With the money from both sales I will use to make my creditcard payment to Target and Chase

I only meet up for the stuff I sell on cl in public. After the meet up dh and I went to home depot and looked at closet organizing stuff. We have a cheapy laminate wood one but we really liked the one we seen today. We came home and decide $$ we will keep the ones we have and take one out so we can add a rod to hang up more of our clothes(we have a lil one ). We as dh and I are discussing it, he talking about he will have to go through his stuff and get rid of things and organize etc etc. Well for dh to be on the same page about decluttering his closet is a HUGE step and makes me sooooo happy!!!!!lol!

Hopefully during the week I can go through a few more items. oh and i told him about adding some sheves in my hall closet for my baking pans , crockpot etc and he said sure . whoowhoo now we just need to get moving

I have a huge tub of tapes i need to go through. It will be nice to get rid of it.

you just claimed back a lot of space getting rid of those 2 shelves. I bet it feels great seeing an empty space.

What are you doing with your old electronics? I have a few of these things also and hate to toss them but also know they are almost obsolete.

Great job on the decluttering!
