    I am doing a 15 min per day clean/declutter. Today I cleaned out my coat closet, I got rid of 2 hangers, 1 kids paint shirt, 1 shopping bag, 1 old coloring book, 2 small chalk boards, some random garbage, vacuumed up lots of dust and dog hair ! Yuck! I found a new/ better homes for a pair of snow pants, a yard stick, an 18 inch ruler, an old jean shirt (good for a work shirt), some kids writing tablets, a tablet of construction paper and that's ll I can think of and I did it all in 15 min!

    Okay, I only got rid of one thing, but it was a 3 drawer dresser that was in the way. There's now room to walk from the door around the car. Also, got rid of some old used molding, too.

    Didn't declutter at all today as I have been sleeping off and on with this flu. When I feel better, I will make up for the days that I miss!

    I really dropped the ball on this one. Forgot all about it with everything that's been going on here. I'm going to go work on some decluttering right after I eat lunch. Will post later. If I forget, someone please remind me!

    I have not been decluttering at all lately...between being sick and visiting FIL in the hospital there is barely enough time to cook meals, let alone de-clutter. He might be getting out tomorrow..if he does, I will make up all the days I missed and start daily again. Actually I can't wait to have time to do it as there is so much I want to throw out. I am also counting the other storage buildings on the property (and if you look in my album, you will see how many and you can imagine how much junk is in each one ) so I probably have close to 3 or 4 40yard dumpsters I can throw out!
