    Default Halfway Through the Living Room Challenge

    ...and I'm wondering if some of us have lost our steam.

    Remember, if you are done, you can be going back and making sure your coat closet is still in order. Hopefully, in a week, it hasn't re-accumulated everything you were able to get rid of!!!

    Also, be sure to be doing some regular maintenance and de-cluttering while you wait for the next challenge!

    No, the living room is on the list for today. I'm just about done. I haven't forgotten.

    Living room still looks good, and our entryway is into the living room, so that handles that! I will work on keeping it that way for now.

    No, Amy...haven't lost steam. I got rid of a box of around 40 books. For the most part my living room is "clutter free". I can't declutter dh's desk. He keeps the top clean but the innerds are his.

    I think tomorrow I will move all the furniture and vacuum and dust. I'll give it a deep cleaning. The carpet is in dire need of scrubbing as well!

    Thanks for reminding me to keep on task!

    The Christmas totes are finally back in the garage... I will have a small box for the misc. Christmas that has made its way into other rooms of the house.... Tonight I hope to finish doing the picking up of the livingroom, and complete it tomorrow...

    Whew, got the living room all decluttered. Wasn't too bad because I just moved in, but it is amazing how quickly misc. junk lands on the bookshelves (think shoes! LOL). I will vacuum and dust today and then I'm done!

    I've given up. With my sewing unit in the living room and dd#1 wanting to sew curtains over here this week, it's a disaster zone. I have no place to store the curtains inbetween working on them. And I have a box of quilting fabric I got off the top shelf of the sewing unit that I haven't managed to get back up there. Plus leftover fabric from sewing dd's wedding outfit in a bag. The curtains are draped all over this and the ironing board besides!

    I think I will go down and try to straighten up a bit, but in reality, as long as the sewing unit is in the living room, there's no hope for it ever looking as nice as your living room Amy.

    It's looking good for me. The den is done. I got it all cleaned up and decluttered. There was just a bookshelf and the tv stand in there so I got that all decluttered. I had a bunch of ds's vhs movies that I am going to take and get my bil to put on disk for me and then drive them straight over to the library to donate. That will clear up alot of space.

    The other living room is pretty much done except for the computer area. I will be working on it in a couple of days. The only other thing is the end table and I cleaned out the drawer this morning. There is a standing clock in here that as soon as my brother comes by, it will be going to his home.

    Well I braved it and went down to work on the living room anyways. I washed all the slipcovers. Moved the books to the bookcases in the hallway. Cleaned off the top of the piano. Rearranged stuff on the mantelpiece. Cleared out some CDs and cassettes for the garage sale pile. It looks much better. Not perfect, especially if you look over towards the sewing unit, but much better anyways.
