It’s hard to believe that November is over and that the next time I do a decluttering update it will be 2012.
Weren’t we supposed to have flying cars and robot maids by now?
Confession: I didn’t do a whole lot of decluttering in November. And I’m feeling that panic in my chest. That seriously-I’m-just-going-to-throw-it-ALL-away panic.
Strangely, though, when I did a Decluttering Tour last week, I was only able to fill a black trashbag because I got rid of big and bulky couch pillows that were stuffed behind the couch because I’d decided I didn’t like them. (Yep, I’m mature.)
Anyway, it made me realize that it’s a positive that I don’t have tons of clutter out in my regular living areas anymore. But . . . it doesn’t mean I don’t have tons of clutter left. It’s just in the less-oft-used areas.
But since the goal of this deslobification process is to NOT have off-limits areas in my home, I want to fully purge these areas too.
Okay, enough Slob Ramblings . . . here’s what I did get rid of last month, and here’s hoping I’ll have lots more to report for December.
- Clothing found to be too small after the Seasonal Clothing Changeover. (I reserve the right to not say whether it was kids’ clothes or my clothes.)
- Four couch pillows.
- Various rarely used kitchen utensils.
How did you do in November? Any major purging? Or do the holidays keep you too busy for stuff like decluttering? (They do for me!)
I’d love to hear your progress or frustrations in the comments or in a blog post that you link up below. If you link up, just be sure to link back to A Slob Comes Clean within your post.

And one MORE thing. For my Daily in December commitment to do my Daily Checklist . . . I swept, did a 5 minute pick-up, and hubby cleaned the kitchen and ran the dishwasher. LOVE that man!
