Simplify and Declutter: Day 3 of 10
January 8, 2013
For ten days this January, we’re decluttering our house from top to bottom. We’re using Tsh Oxenreider’s ten-day plan from her book Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living. Please see the links at the bottom of this post to read about our entire household declutter.
After two days of intense decluttering, day three was much easier. One small hall closet was welcome as the task for the day. This is the closet that holds spare toiletries, our iron, candles, towels, games, media and crafts.
I forgot to take pictures as I went, but below you’ll see a couple of shots of the finished product. Honestly, not much changed here. I put some of our craft supplies in the give pile because the kids weren’t interested. Little Charlie decided that he didn’t need three reams of origami paper. One would suffice. What I enjoyed most was going through the craft supplies with the kids. It reminded them of the possibilities for when they’re bored. It was also great to put some DVDs and CDs in the give pile.
Notice the lack of white fluffy towels. That’s my vision for spa perfection. Alas, I’m too cheap to ditch our towel stash just because it doesn’t match. As long as I continue to swim and acquire towels as race swag, I don’t see the fluffy white towels coming any time soon. Alas, truly a first world problem.
Stay tuned for kitchen day tomorrow. Cue the theme from Friday the 13th.
