Had a nice relaxing weekend. How about you? Everyone has been warned not to bother me on Sunday nights. (Those obsessed with Downton Abbey know why.)
Hubs came home from his work trip last Friday from the US, he bought some groceries home (always cheaper in the US than here in Canada), we enjoyed our favorite leek tart for supper and finally put away the Christmas tree. Another box purge took place at that time...as you know, I just can't have a few leftover random boxes shoved into the furnace room (or anywhere else, for that matter!) I instantly felt better once they were gone.
The next day, my walk-in closet decluttering and purging went very well. I re-read DaniBP's post on decluttering (great tips), uploaded some 1980s tunes on my Ipod, grabbed some garbage bags and went through a quick 20 minute ruthless purge. I wholeheartedly recommend it. Don't think about it, just do. So freeing. Three garbage bags later, I was well on my way to an orderly walk-in closet and could organize the remaining items accordingly. I even unpacked all our luggage too... I still had toiletries in our luggage from our NYC trip and from Christmas. I'm a bit notorious for not fully unpacking after going somewhere...must try to be better this year.
I did not take up the offer presented on the Home Depot's Sales Board just down the street from my house - "Take control of your clutter with our storage solutions this month!!"
How about taking control of your clutter by getting rid of some of it (or all of it)?
