Ok, so I don’t have pictures because I didn’t have my camera when I de-cluttered. And I didn’t spread it out over seven days because it’s too hard with work. But I did de-clutter seven things!
I spent Sunday afternoon de-cluttering the five drawers in my nightstand and then de-cluttered my bathroom cabinet and the étagère over the toilet (seven things!).
The étagère left the house entirely and was replaced with these shelves. Now they only store towels instead of being a catch-all.
From the cabinet I got rid of an old container of potpourri, several empty cardboard boxes, and a broken flashlight. This made room for the necessities that moved from the old étagère.
In the top drawer of my nightstand, I organized my jewelry into these organizer boxes according to matching sets (necklace and earrings). They’re perfect – I just stack two of them without the lids and I can get to everything easily. Got rid of a couple of necklaces I don’t wear any more.
The second drawer gave up some old lotion and lip balm, unused key chains and binder clips.
Third drawer lost little actually – just a couple of eyeglass cases.
Fourth drawer saw the departure of a couple of half used pads of paper, some old planner inserts, a wallet, and a couple of travel jewelry cases.
Fifth drawer lost the most weight. There was a basket of old jewelry that had tipped over and the contents had been rolling around the bottom of that drawer for months! Got rid of most of that. And several magazines and some cute little stuffed animals (that I haven’t found a suitable home for yet – not convinced that I want to give them up. Maybe they can decorate my office.)
And there are my seven things de-cluttered! I’ll take pics of the next weeks work!
