Your Clutter Free Journey

Take the first step on your Clutter Free Journey to living a beautiful, clutter free life! On your journey, you will examine your relationship with the stuff in your life and it's impact on your overall well-being. You will learn to make choices over what you invite into your home. The way we feel inside is directly reflected in our living spaces. In turn, our living spaces affect our internal well-being. By making small, steady changes in our living environment, we can change how we feel inside and make our homes a reflection of what is important to us.

Goldfish

The best part of having attic, garage and/or basement is the extra SPACE! The worst part of having an attic, garage and/or basement is the extra SPACE! We are like goldfish when it come to our stuff; if we have the space, we will fill it!

With our oldest son on a youth retreat this weekend, we decided to conquer the two huge attic spaces off each side of his bedroom, the bonus room. These are great, as far as they allow relatively easy access to holiday items, out of season clothing and clothes for the boys to grow into. However, as this space is “out of sight, out of mind” it seems to breed clutter!

We decided to begin on the right side today and decluttered a multitude of children's toys, books and clothing. We have a big pile for Goodwill, a pile of items for the local consignment shop and a very large bag of trash! This was only one side!

Tomorrow we will tackle the second side and perhaps the over head space in the hallway on Monday! I love three day weekends! I will keep you up to date and may even include pics!

Where has your clutter been breeding?
