Well, our journey The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizingis continuing. It's incredibly freeing to be making our way through this process and really finding our stuff and ourselves again. I talked in the last post about how Marie Kondo suggests that you go through your belongings by categories, instead of rooms. Clothes were first, and I shared this picture of my Littles as we went through their clothes. I share again here, because I want you to see a little of the state of their room. Unfortunately, I didn't do a good job of getting before pictures in their room, but these pictures are actually pretty representative of how their room was most of the time. On this day we were going through their clothes, but there were only a few more on the floor than usual ;)
We even got rid of a bunch of furniture that wasn't really being used and was taking up more space in their room. (The couch is from the living room)
My husband even went though his hung clothes, (still needs to do his dresser) and cleaned off his end table. I REALLY wish I had a before picture of THAT! But what was really good, was that while cleaning off his end table he found a check for $100 that he had forgotten about from this Spring! So, this gave me the perfect opportunity to highlight to him how our clutter is literally costing us money! He now sees how important it is to get our house cleaned up now! :)
