Day 11 declutter/organize results!

April 11th, 2014 at 08:26 pm

OK, made up for lost time a bit.

I tackled the bigger of the two front closets. Threw some stuff away, recycled, and organized. One of the time-consuming but satisfying chores was gathering all the scattered gift-wrapping and gift-bag detritus, recycling the damaged stuff:



... and organizing the usable (and reusable) stuff:



Here's one side of the closet before:



... and after:



Can't tell much difference? Well, 80% of the stuff there now is designated for the garage sale next month. The only things we're keeping are the strollers, the steamer/mops, and three articles of clothing. (All the hangers tied together are going to the sale.)

Here's the other side of the closet before:



... and after:



That one is hopefully noticeably better, but it's not the end of it. There's a carseat that's Freecycle material, a broken printer and hard drive that need to be recycled at a special facility, and an entire shelf of old painting supplies that will be pared down with NT's help at some point this month.

I moved some things to other closets where they made more sense, and I've got two bags of clothes for the donation box NT will pass on Tuesday night. And I need to take some recycling and free-table stuff downstairs. Might do that when I'm done with this post! Smile

    Great job, ceejay! I can see the difference. Smile

    That is awesome! What are you going to do when you have nothing left to declutter? Smile I'm still working on mine...I filled one garbage bag with donations that was picked up Monday, and I've been filling another bag this week. I also started two other piles of clothes to be given to friends.

    Oh, I don't think I'll run out of places to declutter -- not in one month at least! I still have to recycle/sell/donate all the stuff I mentioned above, plus the more I do this, the more I notice spots that could use a good going-over. Like last night I kept passing the record shelves and noticing that the top of it had fallen into disarray. I hadn't even noticed before!
