For this project, I think breaking down large spaces into smaller units was key. Tackling our kitchen all at once would have been way too overwhelming. Over the past week I decluttered and reorganized our downstairs bathroom, living room (with Jac's help), laundry room and kitchen pantry. Below is a photo of our reorganized pantry. I keep forgetting to take before photos but I'm not sure I want to share our mess anyway.
Oh, and I stopped counting bags. I will definitely be donating/recycling/throwing away more than 20 bags so I decided not to spend any more energy on counting.

I know I'm late on reading this, which is a perfect example of my disorganized life and procrastination, but what a great idea! I have a head start too since there are two big trash bags full of stuff to give away that are already cluttering up my office. Are you donating a lot of stuff or mostly throwing it away? If you're donating, would you recommend any places?ReplyDelete
