It’s the last day of January!
January 2012 has been a very busy month for me with all the details involved in getting out my e-book, 28 Days to Hope for Your Home.
What? You haven’t purchased your copy yet? It’s okay, click on over and get yours and then come right back.
It’s only $4. UPDATE: This e-book has been retired, but the information is included in my NEW books! For detailed guides, check out my books: How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mindand Decluttering at the Speed of Life.
Good. Now let’s talk about decluttering.
As I’ve shared, my home was sorely neglected while I enjoyed the justifiable (to me) tunnel-vision that came with putting out the e-book. But . . . I noticed last Sunday (while getting the house straightened up before our home group arrived), that my Donate Spot is quite full. We did some significant purging in my daughter’s room one day after Christmas, but most of my decluttering . . . has been unconscious.
That’s right. Unconscious decluttering.
Unconsciousness in regard to housekeeping is second nature to me, but generally only in a negative way. So I was pretty proud of myself when I saw that there were full boxes of stuff to get out of our house.
Not that the boxes are out of the house yet . . . but still.
As we put away Christmas decor, I purged a little.
As I’ve worked to catch up on laundry, I’ve dropped outgrown clothes in the Donate Spot.
As I’ve re-cleared certain trouble spots, I’ve pitched the repeat offenders.
Maybe I’m making progress, because stuff is starting to get on my nerves.
Stuff in my house.
The stuff in the back of the Suburban that hubby put back there when he cleaned out the garage? The stuff that just needs to be dropped off at the thrift store? That doesn’t bug me at all.
Now it’s your turn to share! Maybe you did what lots of people do and completed some big decluttering projects in January. Maybe you didn’t stay in your pajamas for days on end writing an e-book . . .
I’d love to hear about your decluttering progress (or frustrations) in the comments or in a post on your blog. How did January go for you?
