How did the Spring Decluttering Challenge go? Did you join in, even a little? (Giveaway at the end of this post!) For me, I was not super consistent in decluttering a little bit every day. Life happens. I got a little carried away some days, though, so it all evened out. I have been sharing some of my decluttering progress over on Instagram. (Click HERE if you want to follow me!)
Because they are always satisfying to see... a couple of before and after pics:
I am still working on a few projects but I will eventually blog about the playroom. I actually removed 2 more garbage bags of stuff after I took the after pic above!
This was my boldest move... I threw away almost all of our DVD cases! They were in terrible shape anyway. No one put things back right. It just made sense. I got some zippered file cases from Amazon and put them all in those instead.
I can honestly see a big difference in our home at this point. It is easier to clean things up, especially in the kids' bedrooms. Clutter still accumulates in certain areas- don't get me wrong- and we still have messes, but it is getting to be more manageable.
My grand total of garbage bags purged during the Spring Decluttering Challenge is.... (drumroll).........
Not too bad! I am pretty happy with my progress.
Now for the giveaway...
***UPDATE!!! The giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Taryn for winning the $25 gift card!***
To Enter: Leave a comment letting me know how many garbage bags of stuff you purged during the challenge. It could be stuff put in garbage, donated, given to someone else, sold, etc. You will get one entry per bag. Honor system. I trust you.
The Prize: I overthought this quite a bit. I don't really want to add any more clutter to someone's life after they just decluttered! So, I am offering a $25 gift card to your choice of store or restaurant (as long as I am able to get it for you).
I will use excel to do a random selection (because I love spreadsheets sooooo much!) on May 11th at 8am EDT.
