Day One…. My first Project 3/30/2017
(What small project can you declutter? Come along my journey with me so you can help me stay motivated and maybe get motivated yourself.)
I have read that you should start fast and big, so you can get as much done before you lose your desire. Though most of the articles I have read and/or watched say start slow. Getting even a small project done will help. It will help you get started, help you have success, help you feel good and help you get that little section of your house decluttered and maybe even organized.
I have decided to start with a basket in my bathroom full of toiletries. Each one of my family members have one. We are a little family of three. I will tackle my basket on the right.
I believe it was in the book, ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing’, she talks about putting your items in the middle of the floor and then decide where to put the items.
I thought that would be a great idea for this project. After doing that I decided what is really suppose to belong in my basket and what was not.
I kept about 1/2 the contents, 1/4 was in the wrong place, 1/4 garbage and one item I decided to give away.
Items that were in the wrong place
Garbage items (I reused 2 of the ziplocks)
I am very proud of my basket. It was just one little drop of water in my big cluttered bucket, but I got that drop taken care of and am very proud of myself.
