I have finally cleared out my spare bedroom and we got a new bed from my Grandmother when she moved. Got it set up last weekend. So the next couple weeks is a good washing and go through the drawers in the dresser, then 1 room will be completed done!

Awesome. That always feels good finishing up on those projects. I seem to be always decluttering something around here.

Well I've been crazy sick since end of December. Now that the antibiotics are working I'm starting to feel human again lol. I am really behind on everything so for the rest of the week each night I am working on getting Christmas put away, I have one tree still up and its waaaayyy to late. Will feel good to get finished.

My sister has some new calves. One of them got of the fence. He discovered he loves broccoli. He has been very good at forging in the garden.

Lumber came in working on completing the 3 season porch before fall and the ugly weather sets in.

Fall has come swift and sadly cold! I will have to start pulling out the vegetables tonight (frost warning already). The last few Septembers have been so nice so this is sad to see so early. Oh well it will be good to clean up the garage, shed and the flower beds, less work then for the rest of the fall

Here we are working on completing the vanity in the bathroom remodel. We made the bathroom handicap accessible. Then himself got bored with it and work chews up time. Himself if back at it. The materials have brought. Just need to put it together. We had to dash to Fleet Farm to get a reducer piece. The one we had went to fix my mom's handicap bathroom. The goal is to complete before bed today.

Wow, you sound so creative. What a special gift to not only taste great but also detail in perfection, our grooms cake looked exactly like a pizza because we met at Pizza Hut and something people besides us still remember. What a blessing you are to others and their special occasions!!!

Your poor friend, that would be so awful to go through. She is lucky to have a friend like you to help her through this time.
I My husband and I have a small cake business that we do on the weekends. We did one cake last night so today I need to complete the other cake and deliver both.
Instead of just leaving everything I will load the dishwasher and hand wash all remaining dishes from the decorating, that way I won't be adding to my clutter like I normally do. Happy Saturday!

Too many teams can be so overwhelming. I had to cut down before as well.

Today I will put away some of the clothes I washed and folded but just left on the front table.

Ice keeps hitting the house so itís too dangerous to walk outside. We are driving into town later to walk the aisles and dropping off a load of excess. Once itís removed no second guessing.

I like that last post one small area and one pound at a time makes it manageable and feels like an accomplishment each day or week. Today I will de clutter my bay window so I can see the spring sunshine (or more snow haha one day spring will come this year emoticon )

De cluttered my daughters closets today and good thing. Her shelf was bowing and the shelf barely attached to the wall. Thankfully the maintenance man was there to show him so he is going to come back tomorrow to reinforce it. Now will be a two day job but could not believe all that sheís been given over the past two years. Used her as a dumping ground.

I hear you. I hate getting rid of leftover fabric because it might be useful in another quilt, or yarn. I like working on those things in the winter. Something about being curled up under an afghan was I make it to size.
Part of my staying organized is getting clear plastic bins and labeling things so I know what's in then. Right now we are still working on the bathroom remodel so I'm focusing on getting rid of construction debris. I'm looking in the attic to see if I have stored some items that will work in there. Heavens it is a never ending task to stay on top of this. Here's to both of us doing better.

Yes, Ranjin14.

De-cluttering and getting organized helps keep other things on track. At least it seems to work for me. I absolutely refuse to get one of those storage lockers we see popping up around town. I must admit organizing and de-cluttering is endless battle. Something that needs to stay on top of.

I've been de-cluttering this year and it feels great to drop off/donate items. I need to continue this process! Thanks for the reminder! Glad to hear you are doing the same!

Excellent idea. I had started that and then it trailed off into another direction. I better get back at it. Then the decisions are made. It's all fun just getting it done.

Decluttering and stashed bits of family memorabilia in bins for each grandchild and attached a short note to each item. It declutters and is the beginning of passing memories on to another generation .:)

About 6 months ago I started seriously destashing our house. It started because I felt that if we really wanted to move (which we do) I needed to really send that message out to the universe by taking action. Clothes, toys, books, random stuff. Anything that's been living in the dark in a closet, in a box, etc was up for evaluation. It made me feel so free.
I need to do tons more of it though. I have closets to weed and an entire garage and storage shed. Thankfully my mom (to whom a lot of the boxes belong) is on board. I can't wait to be rid of all this extra stuff. We send a carload of to the donation bins about once a month.

Exercise is my Prozac.

Wow !!!! I decided that it is time to bring forth change in my home, so I started by throwing away my dinning room chairs all four of them!!! It felt great and I replaced them with two different chairs I know that may seem crazy replacing four chairs with two chairs. !! But it made the dinning table a better place for me and my daughter, that's our new bonding area we have our meals together and the table has our two chairs because that's our time to talk and share our mornings, and our day after work and school just the two of us!! Let me tell you I like this new arrangement much better! Once our family grows and I re- marry then we will add another chair but until then I am loving the two chair table!!!

Determined To Reach My Goal
