Today is my obligatory decluttering post. I’m pretty happy with the progress I’ve made so far this year.
I tried to do one thing every day this past week on my decluttering plan. I can’t remember exactly what day I did what but I did:
- Decluttered part of the bathroom cabinet over the toilet. I got rid of unwanted hair clips and cleaned the disgusting basket it was all hanging out in.
- Decluttered my t-shirt drawer because DAYUM. I had a lot of shirts I don’t wear.
- Decluttered my file drawer. I freaking had stuff in there from 2006. Pretty sure I don’t need that anymore.
- Decluttered my bank statements. It’s a new year so time to shred all the old stuff. I can get past statements online anyway.
This next week I’d like to go through more stuff in the bathroom and also the kid’s long-sleeved shirts need to be culled.
I have to admit I almost felt like a domestic goddess this past weekend. Not only did I get my laundry done in a timely fashion, but I also replaced the stupid shower curtain rings and shower curtain in our bathroom, baked a cheesecake (using my new and awesome Kitchen Aid mixer that I LOVE – thank you, honey!), colored my hair myself and saved $150 in salon fees and swept the floor. I’m trying to be a better housekeeper but we’ll see how long that lasts. 🙂
Anyway, I felt really accomplished this weekend. I hope I can keep up this motivation. It is only January, after all. 😉
