That means it’s time to go back over my decluttering progress for the month and link up over at The Finer Things in Life where Amy is hosting her monthly Decluttering Report.
I love these posts. I love having a reason to look back over how far I’ve come in a month.
Ok . . . I love it on months like this one. Not so much on the months when my decluttering category only has 2 posts in it.
I’ve come a long way in the master bedroom this month. While my motivation wasn’t exactly noble (the bug man was coming and so I had to stop ignoring the piles I’d been ignoring for a very long time), I’ll take it.
I began the month tackling my very scary side of the bed. While one day’s effort only made a dent, seeing some progress finally happening kept me going.
Then I finally attacked the clothing clutter that I’d been ignoring since July and that I’d been tripping over every time I headed to the bathroom. I kept working on the master bedroom even though I was frustrated over how that was keeping me from doing other things I wanted to do.
Braving the dust of my neglected corners got the best of me on several days, and yet I didn’t have a choice but to keep clearing out corners before the bug man’s arrival. I braved the boys’ closet and my husband’s side of the bed, and once that was done, I started to feel like there was actual hope for our bedroom.
