On the first week we focused on our office, more specifically on DBF's desk. He had a terrible mess and most of it is gone. It feels great.
|Look! Empty shelves!!|
To make things even better I would have liked to take care of my desk and bookcase too, but unfortunately I didn't find / make time for that, so I will try to tackle this during this month.
I then started a new room: the bathroom. It's very very tiny and I was able to declutter it all during the weekend.
|The after pic. It looks like there are still many things, I know, but it was|
worse before and much more disorganized, trust me!
Finally, last week I worked in the bedroom, especially our closet. Look at all the clothes I got rid of:
|There were at least 15 or 20 pieces that didn't fit me and that I|
packed to bring to a charity. Look at all those hangers!
So far, it's been great. I have to fight my natural tendency to perfectionism and remind myself constantly that doing something is great already, and that all this mess didn't appear overnight and can't hence disappear all of a sudden. It's hard sometimes but it's getting easier and I've taken the habit to celebrate those victories, no matter how small they are.
This week, I am working on the kitchen. I especially decluttered my recipe books that I never ever use. I will also work on practicing my routines, I'm tired to have a big huge mess to take care of before the cleaning lady comes on Thursday, when it's so easy to do a little every day. Maintenance is the key to housework happiness, I tell you!
