De-Clutter Project 2014 - Week 11

I finally managed to get my son involved in the de-clutter project this past weekend. He was constantly complaining about not being able to find anything to wear in spite of the fact that his closet and drawers were overflowing.

Convincing him to go through everything and get rid of those things he would never wear was easier than anticipated. He managed to fill two large green garbage bags of clothes to send to Goodwill, and half a bag of stuff that is headed for the garbage truck because it is no longer fit for anyone to wear.

In the process, he found items he'd forgotten he had and he can now find what he's looking for in his drawers and closet. He's happy and I'm happy to get another load of unwanted stuff out of my house. And the job got done so fast, I did not get the opportunity to take photos.

My aim was to tackle my closet this evening before posting, but we had a huge snow storm here today. I fell in the parking lot at work as I was leaving and I'm a bit worse for the experience. I'm not doing much tonight. I'm going to follow the cat's lead. *smile*

What area do you intend to tackle this week? What do you think you will find? More importantly, what will you do with it?


  1. Ouch Bonnie! I hope you're Ok and not too bashed up :-(
    Funnily enough I got some help this week too. Speeds things up a bit doesn't it?

    1. Getting other people in the house to 'buy in' to the whole de-clutter process makes the whole thing move along quicker. As for the fall, I do have a couple of extra aches and pains because of it this morning.

  2. I hope you are recovering well, with no residual problems. I'm laid up this week too, with the worst cough I've had in years. It's so good you got the lad to clean out his closet (but did he clean up the mess he made doing that, or was that your job?) I'm trying to get my hubby to clean up his furnace room as I know he won't let the furnace man come to do his yearly service job until it's done. So far, no luck, but he's had this bug a week longer than me and he's not over it yet either, so I suppose the basement isn't a good place for him just now.
