Join Us For Tackle It Tuesday! We’re making housework blog-able! Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week. Find out more about Tackle It Tuesday here.
In the spirit of simplicity and clutter free living, I’m hosting a comment contest! You get the prize, and my house gets decluttered. Simply leave a comment on this post, and you will be entered in a drawing to receive a brand new copy of the book “The Total Money Makeover” by Dave Ramsey.
All you’ve gotta do is leave a single comment (duplicates will be deleted) telling me your best decluttering tip. You must provide a valid e-mail address, but you do not have to have a blog.
I’ll be collecting comments through Thursday night at midnight (CST). On Friday, July 27th I’ll hold the drawing using a random number generator and announce the winner! Good luck and thanks for playing!
Unfortunately I don’t really have any before pictures for today. However I do have an “in progress” photo to share.
I’m soooo tired of all the clutter and junk around my house. At first we were holding on to stuff because we’re all pack rats. Then we rationalized it by saying we were saving it all for a yard sale. (Baaaahahhahahahhaa!) Seven years later and we STILL haven’t had that yard sale!
I’ve actually prayed about this, and decided that instead of being self-centered (I want money for my stuff), I felt lead to give it away and bless others. We’ve struggled financially for so long, that giving it all away for free (and some really great stuff too!) was a much harder decision to make than I’d like to admit. *sigh*
However, the truth is that there are people all over the world struggling even more than my family, and once I made the decision, it actually became fun to gather things up! This pile is stuff just from my bedroom. UGH!
I joined our local Freecyle list and have been posting away all day. I’m hoping to get this stuff (and more) out of the house ASAP. My ultimate goal is to turn my bedroom from junk yard to an oasis of peace. Or at least as close as I can get to it in our tiny house. lol….
