    Default Mini-Challenge: Weekend Clutter

    Let's face it...over the weekends, we may not be as good as we usually are as sticking to our daily routines; especially when it comes to cleaning.

    So, before you go to bed on Sunday, I want you to, once again, take a small garbage bag around your house and fill it up and put it out with the trash immediately. If you need a few bags, then use them! If you can't fill up one bag, then make a second sweep through your house until you can. Look everywhere!

    Let's start out Monday morning on a good note!

    Hmmm, does it have to be trash?
    My weekend clutter is usually the 15 billion toys that migrate down the stairs to my living areas

    Rebecca,

    I'm impressed. You declutter before going to work? You've got to be a morning person. You should see me in the morning. I'm a maniac rushing around. I think I have everything timed down to the last second.

    I conquered the paper trash. I even went through a bag filled of stuff I found in the basement. I found a $26 check for my dh over a year old. So, not sure if it is still good, he'll have to check it out. I've got one huge bag full of junk.

    The house is looking better already.
