The de-cluttering process has started! Yeah- a big task for sure, but slowly I am making some progress. Yesterday, I donated 3 garbage bags filled with toys, clothes, and books to charity! I have a big issue with children's books- couldn't believe how many books I'm finding throughout the house. I'm trying to pick out the classics and our favorites and give away the rest. There is a library up the street- I keep telling myself this when I have a hard time parting with a book.
There is still so much clutter in my bedroom, storage room and children's rooms to go through. The process may be slow, but it is possible! I need to keep telling myself that- I can do this- even if it is 15 minutes a day.
Today, I visited the blog- Love and Lollipops. She is ready for the challenge, too. She is getting rid of one item each day for 30 days! Take a peek here...
