I have been so busy Conquering the Clutter, I haven’t had time to blog about it. Last week I cleaned out my school cubbies, so the next step was the school bins. These bins hold books, papers, and other resources for homeschooling that we are not currently using. Every once in a while I decide to clean out the bins, but usually I have three or four bins and I never get them all done. This time I was determined to finish the job. I started with two large Rubbermaid totes and a cardboard box.
As I started to clean out, I found papers from 2002, lots of them. And these weren’t papers I should have saved. Math worksheets, coloring pages with two scribbles, things of that nature. I finally sorted through all of our homeschool stuff and it felt great! I ended up with one large garbage bag full of trash and one empty bin.
One thing I couldn’t bring myself to throw away were all my planning books. They remind me of our first years homeschooling, when things were easy, and I was younger :).
After I finish with our school books I moved on to the playroom. This room has never been officially organized, and is always a wreck, I guess that is why it is a playroom?
As I am uploading these pictures, I realize we still have way to much stuff! I have a van full of toys/ clothes to drop at to Goodwill this week, but I am realizing I can get rid of much more. It is just so hard to decided when you have a lot of kids and they play with almost all of the toys!
I have started several other clutter projects this weekend and I am hoping to finish them up in the next few days. I will update this post as I finish projects. I also hope to finish the garage soon since we have been working on it since June.
