Just a quick post (hopefully) before I peel myself out of my desk chair and trudge out in the rain to go to the gym. I certainly need it, as I am cranky today! I haven’t been to the gym in well over a month because I have been so sick with an awful cough. Coughing so hard you gag. TMI? Anyway, I want to get back into a gym routine, because I actually feel a lot better when I go, and I find it helps lift my mood.
Yesterday, as I was perusing pinterest, or one of those other mommy budget blogs that are all over the weekend, I happened to find THIS awesome article about de-cluttering your home in 40 days. I thought this was a pretty cool way to start my de-cluttering journey, as we move in a few months, and I need to reduce reduce reduce. She also has THIS post on her blog, which is where I found the original file.
Today I’m supposed to start with the kitchen drawers, and find at least 10 items to get rid of. Well, right before Christmas, I already tossed/goodwilled about two huge rubbermaid bins of stuff from my kitchen. But I’m sure I can find more! I find I need structure like this, because over the weekend, I did want to start de-cluttering, I just didn’t know how or where to start.
Do you have any good ideas for de-cluttering before a big move? How do you reduce the amount of items/crap your family has?
