Uncluttering: You’ll Soon Be an Addict, Like Me


Sometimes just getting started is half the battle….My brother and sister-in-law have a nice bookcase in their living room that holds books, photos and toys. It had gotten overly cluttered and was driving them crazy. With two young kids in the house, it was just one more thing in their long list of to-dos. Yet everyday there it was, mocking and frustrating them.

This bookcase is a command central of sorts and I knew it would make a big difference for them if it was organized. Since I love to tackle small things that make big impact I was more than happy to lend a hand. I’m pretty sure they thought it would take a long time, but I knew we could get it done in less than an hour.

I was right, it didn’t take long at all. Afterwards my sister-in-law said to me “you have no idea how long I’ve wanted to do that”.

Once we got going things were flying into the purge pile so fast I was having trouble keeping up with them! They did an awesome job!

The best part? A couple of days later my sil went out and bought a tote and organized all her son’s craft supplies, something else she’d been wanting to do for awhile.
