My First Step at DeclutteringPosted: March 3, 2011
I made the first big step in decluttering, my closet. I went through me closet and attempted some sort of organization. My main goal was to reduce the number of t-shirts that I own. The big part was pulling all of them out of the closet and placing them on the bedroom floor. Shirt by shirt, I picked up each one, determined if I could still fit in it, then either kept it or Goodwill’d it. I really do not need five grey t-shirts. I kept all the, yes I am going to say this, sentimental t-shirts. Not sure why I keep them, they may have to be donated in the next round of decluttering.
I decided that I wasn’t finished there, the next logical step was to do the same thing for the golf shirts. Not sure why I call them that, I don’t play golf or have any desire to do so. Made a big pile of those to add to the Goodwill pile as well. I also made a small pile of skinny shirts that I hope to fit into in a couple of weeks.
Next step, my desk. I plan to take everything off my desk at home. Anything electronic goes upstairs. Anything I don’t use anymore gets trashed of sent to Goodwill.
Wish Me Luck,
