I have read several articles, books and posts about decluttering and organizing this year. I think I have a plan now and will begin the journey today.
So far, I am going to break the house into zones and try to work through a room in a two week period. I work full time - so I can only spend a short amount of time per day working on this.
- Living Room
- Master Bed and Bath
- Game Room
- Dining Room
- Kids Room 1 and Bath
- Kids Room 2 and Bath
- Kids Room 3 and Bath
- Study and Craft Area
- Laundry Room
I didn't include the garage because we have already cleaned out and organized this area earlier in the year. We have to maintain it though and my husband does a good job of that.
In my blog, I will keep track of my plan for each zone, the progress, trials and tribulations I face. I will also post the before and after pictures of each zone.
I am off to take pictures of the first zone...the Living Room. I am beginning here because we have a new set of furniture being delivered tomorrow. The old couch's new home will be in the game room and the old entertainment center is in the garage awaiting a new home. Although new furniture is set to arrive, my challenge is dealing with the mountain of toddler toys that live in the corner of the living room. I have a few ideas of how to deal with these...I will surprise you with the results!
