Actually getting started is my biggest struggle, once I start it’s ok! Another thing is not trying to do too much, I sometimes find my energy waning and I still have quite a bit to do, what is left sometimes gets left in a big box to be done later :0(

I’ll be giving one task a week so it won’t be too overwhelming and can fit into busy schedules. I look forward to you joining us!

Kids toys and clothes.
kitchen stuff…..how much do you actually use?
husband’s stuff…oh wait! we are moving soon and he will have a shed. that should give me about 4 cupboards worth of extra space in our new place.

Sheds are great places for storing seasonal and not used regularly items!

Decluttering, I think this is the story of our lives!
I live in an apartment and have to be very smart with clutter.
Recently, to make room for baby#2 we did a huge clean out. We also put in extra shelving 🙂
The hardest thing is parting with things…. I just want to keep everything!!

Staying motivated is my biggest problem. I always have a lot going on so it’s really easy to get side tracked by something else rather than continuing to declutter like I’d intended too
