Does your linen closet (or “place”) look like mine? I know I am in dire need of a house makeover. We are beginning a “Clutter Intervention”. Each week or two we will have new regions of our home for us to work on, of areas to “declutter”. Challenge yourself to go through the areas discussed and eliminate what is old or rarely used, fold and make those areas neat and spiffy! We will have a flickr group to showcase our before and afters (if you are daring!). Happy Cleaning!
Each week I will post a list of my trouble spots for the week. There is only one clutter spot per day to go through. It helps not to try to go too fast. Not all of us can find a whole afternoon to go through all the linens and clothing ¦ but most of us can find 10 minutes to go through the towels.
The only thing you will really need for this challenge is a notebook. Any notebook will do. This will be to keep a list next to you of the needs in each area you are decluttering. For example: If you go through your children’s clothing and find that your daughter only has 4 pairs of socks, and half her pants are too short, you write Madeline: Socks and pants on the list. If you are like me, it is also good to have boxes or bags handy, as you want to get the decluttered stuff out of the house as fast as possible. Goodwill anyone???
Declutter list for week #1:
1. Linens & Sheets
2. Towels & Wash clothes
3. Rugs & mats
4. Current Clothes (list needs)
5. Kids dress up stuff
6. Winter gear, Coats, & Shoes (list needs)
7. Stuffed animals
I have created a Flickr group so that we can share pictures. After all, I will be doing this challenge with you ¦ and I believe another admin mama here as well ¦ so you will get to see our spaces and
