Purge, Purge, Purge...

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...
Love and Lollipops: 30 Day Give Away Challenge

Today's progress....
Organized bill binders and filed
Sorted mail right away and tossed trash
Threw away 25 pieces of paper

Motivating the family...
kids spent 5 minutes cleaning around desks
kids worked together to put dishes away
husband spent 1/2 hr cleaning in garage


How are you doing this week with de-cluttering?  If your not doing good, don't worry.  Just start tomorrow- all you need is a few minutes.

Thank you so much for linking to me Jen. I am your first follower and look forward to following your progress too. I have managed to give away a lot more than one item a day so far, but made my challenge "easy", for those who really have a hard time throwing things away.

Funny, I might star a blog just to get myself organized - I love the idea!!!
