3, 4, 5.  That is just how I roll…right through a weekend of de-cluttering all at once!

Day #3:

Paper Clutter (like the mail that takes over EVERYTHING once your kids enter into activities, and playdates).

Day #4:

Living Room: mine got a serious tackle when I went over Day #2.  Since our entry-way closet is IN the living room, I just sort of made a huge mess, and then had to put it all back.  Cleaning it up and de-cluttering as I went, sort of went with that situation.

Day #5: (today)

Is Books and Magazines.  Oh how sad for this Librarian; so, so sad.  Actually, I read magazines and either pass them on, or if they were located in a germy place (read: bathroom) then, I toss.  If magazines are in my house, they are usually given to me second hand from my awesome mother in law anyway, so I don’t feel like I need to keep the cycle going forever.  As for books, I honestly take them out from the library, as it is very budget friendly 🙂 and convenient for me, working in the book-place!  The books that I do keep are cookbooks, or non-fiction, home-reference type of books.  The others, I am donating to friends or the library “take-one” area. Tomorrow is back to work, and de-cluttering with Day#6.  I have to say, the weekend is full of lots of regular cleaning, grocery shopping, and cooking, beside the usual shuttling to soccer games, and social fun. I truly am looking forward to tomorrow for the 31 day project of getting my house in order.  Forget the job that pays the bills right now.  I really enjoy just being in my house more already as it gets more orderly. And when I tell my kids to “hang up their coats,” or “take off their shoes,” they have somewhere to put them away. I hope you will join along with this next month of organizing and making your house a home.  It isn’t too late to start following along, and just 30 minutes each day can make a big difference.
