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 gently used copy of the book “Decorating on a Shoestring” by Ellis and Janssen. (What I really need is a book called “Decorating your Landfill.” *sigh*)
All you’ve gotta do is leave a single comment (duplicates will be deleted) about the last time you RAKed (Random Act of Kindess) someone. You must provide a valid e-mail address, but you do not have to have a blog. I’ll announce the winner on Wednesday!
The decluttering continues! Last week I started in my bedroom, but quickly realized that I didn’t really have a good “holding area” for the items that were waiting on their new homes. This meant that I ended up having lots of stuff spread out in our living areas. Not Good.
So I decided to clear out the garage instead, freeing up space so that the “inside the house” stuff can wait in the garage. It has been a long, grueling process. Which, sadly, still has a long way to go.
Can someone explain to me why I keep posting embarrassing pictures of my house? Seriously. For years I’ve been trying to hide all this clutter, but give me a digital camera and a blog, and I’ll post it on the web for the whole world to see. It’s a sickness.
Sadly, this is NOT a “before” picture. This is a shot of my garage as it stands today. Believe it or not, this is an IMPROVEMENT over what it looked like just last week. I’ve gotten rid of an embarrassing load of excess since then. I am holding on to just a few items to sell on Craigslist, but 99% was given away on Freecycle.
Anyone else in the throws of decluttering? How about on a massive scale like this? Got any embarrassing clutter photos on your blog? Link me up! I’m starting to feel very alone here….
