Technically, this post should be a report on what I decluttered in December.
But that was so last year.
For some reason, I have no desire to even go look at my decluttering category. Not sure where this defiant attitude is coming from . . . but I’m just in the mood to look forward. To what I’m doing right now.
And what I’m doing right now isn’t too terribly much, but it’s extreme.
Meaning, I am right back into the swing of life and haven’t had the time to do any whole-house-overhauling, but the one small project I did was extreme. I went from this:
That’s right. I ditched a piece of furniture.
Even though it was a very cute piece of furniture that sounded super-useful in the description on ebay that made me buy it several years ago. (You’ll have to watch the video to see how super-cute it was.)
When you can’t see it because it is a dumping ground . . . you’re not allowed to call it cute.
Things I found while cleaning it off before pushing it into the garage:
– The bag with the video camera and other electronics for the car which we took to Disney World . . . last July.
– My coupon box that I knew was full of expired coupons, but didn’t pitch a YEAR ago because I thought there were a few coupons in there that were good through the end of 2011. There were. I didn’t use them. It’s 2012 now.
– Inside that box, there was also a poptart. I don’t remember the last time I bought poptarts.
Honestly, my kids were a little freaked when they came home and the bench wasn’t there. Not that they were in the habit of using it for their shoes. Just as a target for the area of the room where shoes get thrown.
My first Decluttering Webisode of 2012! (If you’re reading in email, click through to see the video.)
Now, it’s time to share your own decluttering successes! (Or struggles.) You can share what you decluttered in December, in all of 2011, so far in January . . . anything as long as it’s about decluttering! Leave a comment or link up a post from your own blog. If you do link up a blog post, I ask that you link back to A Slob Comes Clean within your post. If you need help to know how to do that, just ask!
And let me know your thoughts on continuing the monthly decluttering reports. Should we cut them out, or would it be easier-to-remember/more-motivating to do a weekly decluttering link-up. I really do want to know what you think. I won’t be offended if you don’t think I should keep it going!
Oh, and don’t forget that today is the last day of the 2$ intro price for the easy-to-download e-book version of all of my printable housekeeping checklists and their accompanying posts!
