Who would have thought you could fit this much into 1 draw? Each photo is of one of my three draws...
My top draw collected "stuff", so I had to be brutal with that one. I also got rid of my 6 year old undies - that I bought for after labour with my son...big black knickers! I was still wearing them which is sad - so they had so say goodbye! So I now have 3 nice and tidy draws.
Next it was onto my handing clothes and top of the walk in robe. I put summer clothes into bags on top of my walk in robe and then had a serious declutter with the rest. I'm not a huge clothes person so didn't have too much - but did manage to get 1 full bag for goodwill. I had some shoes to chuck out too.
Walk in robe - before
Walk in robe - after
Hubby even got into the groove of things and had a tidy out on the weekend and had a full bag for goodwill and just as much for the trash!
I was then in a bit of a decluttering mood - so hit the kids clothes. I have done all their draws and hanging stuff - the only thing I haven't done is the top of their wardrobes....
Then the big one - the toys!! I knew this would be a big job and was overwhelmed where to start - which was why I put it at the bottom of my decluttering schedule. But I also knew I would feel better when it was done. Monday arvo, public holiday, hubby offered to take the kids to a playground so I could declutter. Well they were gone for about 2.5 hours - and WOW did I get a lot done! I'm proud to say I'm happy with the toyroom at the moment. 1 huge bag of trash (luckily it was our trash day today) and various other toys have been hidden in spots around the garage. My aim is to gather all of these up and attempt to sell them - possibly at the baby and kids market that is across the road. But that is another huge job in itself - so for now I'm happy to just have them out of the house. They are in the garage (hidden as last time I stashed old toys there the kids found them and bought them back in!!) and that is the last item on my decluttering schedule.
So wow - when I revisit my decluttering schedule - I've managed to cross of 9 items this week!!
