Last week, I promised an update to my spring-cleaning 400-item purge. And photos.
I did take some photos.
Because who wants to take pictures of sack after sack of donations?
I made it.
Over 400 items donated, and over 10 bags of trash.
And sadly enough, I feel like our house could still use another 400-item week.
But not this week.
My big areas that really helped me out were decluttering our craft area, medicine cabinet, and then a random bag of 100+ cookie cutters and 40+ tupperwares that I had forgotten to unpack in our move. We obviously haven't needed them yet, so it was time for them to go.
I actually didn't touch our clothing this time.
Usually my clothing is the first thing to go...
So much so that I own three pairs of jeans.
Two public-wearable pairs of jeans.
I am brutal when it comes to my wardrobe.
So I didn't touch it this time.
Michael and the boys, however, could use a little work, but I promised Michael I would leave his stuff alone this purge.
So we still have a large flat-screen non-working television, about 40 video games from our garage sale last May, and Michael's ample dresser drawers....untouched.
Now after taking pictures of junk/garbage, I wanted to take pictures of things that make me happy that I'm keeping around.
This water infuser. I should write a post about some sneaky and fun ways I've been getting the boys to drink a lot of water lately.
I don't mind spending a little more money on good-smelling cleaning products, because if they smell good, then I use them more, and when I use them more, the house gets cleaner.
He did.....well, he did great for his first effort. I'll take it.
