Today’s Declutter Item
Before you start scrolling to find today’s post or emailing me saying I forget to write something I will let you know I am doing things a little backwards today. It has been a crazy busy day and I didn’t leave much time to write a post so I decided to share with you a more visual post of what my daughter and I have been up to lately.
So above you will see my declutter item of the day. A big pile of empty boxes. Actually the top two are full of baseball cards but they are also being decluttered. These boxes are the result of my daughters decluttering efforts over the last nine days while she visited me.
As you can see from the caption of the photo above this is a box of stuff she is keeping for now. It will stay in the bottom of her closet until she is better placed to claim it for good.
Below are two photos both are of the upper shelf of her old bedroom closet. I think you can figure out for yourselves which is the before and which is the after shot but I have labeled them anyway. The after shot is of smaller boxes of stuff she is keeping for now. The other is what the shelf looked like before we began the big declutter. Quite a good effort Â don’t you think. Please ignore the fact that the before shot shows empty boxes. I wasn’t planning on doing this post when we got started so had to put all the empty boxes back to get the visual effect.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
Clearly I am grateful for the great effort my darling girl made to declutter her stuff from my house. All the stuff that was in the boxes was taken to the thrift store today and I had the pleasure of seeing some of it walk out the door with new owners.
