Declutter Update (Update #3)


oh yes, i'm still going!  trying to get as much of it done as i can while i still have that 'just started' momentum.  although, to be honest, i picked really easy areas this time around.

bathroom

kept:
1 shower curtain, liner, and rings
1 toilet brush/plunger set
1 organizer tray
3 makeup bags
1 first aid box
1 garbage can
2 glass canisters

decluttered:
1 ceramic kleenex cover (it broke. solved that problem.)
1 toothbrush holder (the one that matched the kleenex cover.)
1 shower curtain, liner, and rings
2 under sink drawers
3 makeup bags
1 plastic drawer unit

total kept: 10
total decluttered: 9
47%


living room

kept:
1 apple tv
1 picture frame
1 throw blanket
1 surge protector

decluttered:
1 dvd player
1 digital camera

total kept: 4
total decluttered: 2
33%


closet

i mentioned my wardrobe declutter, but i didn't count the rest of the closet contents in that post.  it's a fairly large closet, so it also holds my linens.

kept:
1 shoe rack
1 boot tray
1 umbrella
1 suitcase
1 mirror
2 sets of towels
2 sets of sheets
1 duvet
1 cork board
4 pillows
1 hamper
1 electric blanket

decluttered:
1 decorative tray
2 shoe racks
1 duvet
2 pillows
2 sets of towels
1 dresser
2 lamps
5 pillowcases (where did these come from?!)
1 throw blanket

total kept: 17
total decluttered: 17
50%


there's not too much left to get done in terms of general areas, which is exciting.  however, it is the stuff that's the hardest, which is why i put it off.  i need to tackle the kitchen, the hutch in the dining room (which is pretty much an extension of kitchenware), and the contents of the bookcase in my room.  oh and the two big boxes still in my parent's attic, which will hopefully get done when i pet sit in february.  getting there, kids, getting there.

  3. 5 pillow cases?!
    That's awesome how you're decluttering so much! I've been trying to declutter my room but the moment I see something from 5 years ago, I just think... "I need to keep this! That was such a fun day with my friends" and then I just throw it back into this bucket of random useless assorted things I keep.

  7. Every time I read your updates I am torn between being proud of you and feeling like a hoarder.

  9. I love that you are going room by room... this is inspiring me to do my own decluttering around the apartment. I've notice that when space is limited, it tends to really pile up quickly (or maybe that's just because there are less places to hide junk??) :) Thanks for this!

  10. These posts kinda remind me of the defrag system tool on windows. :)
    And I am totally with Jess above---my buckets of useless assorted things have become laundry basket sized.

    1. Hahaha that is exactly how I'm going about it! With the percentages and everything ;)
      I told Jess - I take pictures of sentimental stuff. That way, I don't feel bad parting with the useless item.

  13. Nice! I'm doing the same thing because I'm moving in April but the worst places are storage and the garage. Those will require lots of wine!!

  14. You did such a great job and seriously made me feel to start decluttering immediately now that exams are over for me and work is a little less hectic. Good luck with the kitchen and other stuff!
