    Default Do You Love It?

    Okay, here's todays challenge. I want you to go into your most cluttered room. Seriously, look around. Now...I want you touch everything in the room. As you hold it, decide...do I love it? Do I REALLY love it? Do I use it? Have I used it in the past 6 months? If the answer is no for any of these questions, get rid of it. Add it to your donation box, or if you think no one can use it, toss it. Right away.

    If the answer is yes, then you need to ask one more question. "Is this where it goes?" If not, then take it IMMEDIATELY to where it goes and put it away.

    I'm not specifying a room because I think we all have our own trouble room. For me, I have two. My bedroom and this office. So, I'll be doing this in both rooms today.

    Please do this with me. I think you'll feel better if you do.

    I'm doing this with you Amy and its our m/bedroom. I posted in your other thread exactly what our m/bedroom is like. I'm not sure if I'll finish this today because I'm also re-decorating the room (wallpaper and Victorian border), but its half done from yesterday.

    I already have 3 boxes taped and ready for goodwill. And have thrown out 2 bags full of papers.

    Okay, I am getting up to do this right now! I have been stashing stuff in our guest room for weeks and I really need to get it together. I even have a few boxes of knicknacks and stuff that we haven't unpacked since we moved in our house last May!! That tells you how much I just love having dust collectors around because I haven't felt the need to unpack them! Time for them to go in the sale/donate box. I think I am going to take a bunch of old pictures out of frames and put them in my photo albums.

    I'll try to do some of this later this evening. Today I'm working on just getting my house back in order but I use the "do I love it" method all of the time. It's how I got my house decluttered and it really works.

    Office is done. Stuff has been put back where it goes, a I have grocery bag full of garbage to take out to the trash on my way to the van later, and the office, in general is no longer causing me pain.

    Dh is going to help me attack the laundry later. Master Bedroom...watch out!

    Amy, you should see my bedroom. All the wallpaper is done, just waiting to put the border on. Over half is decluttered and once I'm off here, I'm going to be doing the top of my dresser. It feels so good to have it almost finished.

    Thanks for this challenge - it kept me going when I wanted to quit.

    I made some good progress yesterday. I at least got the stuff sitting in piles on a destination course and I threw away a bunch of trash. I'll be working on it some more tomorrow. Tonight I have to go through the stacks of receipts and mail I've been putting off! Good luck everyone!

No major remodeling just a good old fashioned cleaning. Have started by going through the closet and getting rid of 3 grocery bags of winter clothes. Hope to have the room done by tomorrow morning.
