I spent the weekend working on decluttering the “storage room” in my house. It’s not really a storage room, that’s just what we call it because when a holiday comes along, we shove all of the clutter in there. It’s actually the biggest bedroom upstairs and I want to kick myself every time I think about this cluttered room. Organized storage would be much better.
My 6’1″ son is sleeping in a twin size bed right now. It’s too small for him but the room he’s in is too small for a bigger bed. If I could get the “storage room” cleaned out, I could move him into that room and then get him a bigger bed. I can’t get through it all fast enough. I’m struggling. I could only get through so much before I had to give it up for the weekend. I was doing too much standing there and not enough getting rid of.
I have 4 big buckets of stuff ready to get rid of (I made a little progress). I’m kind of waiting until I have a few more because it gives me that sense of accomplishment when I see it all together as one big pile. I also like the feeling of seeing no room to walk around and then when it’s gone, empty space. That’s a great feeling too!
We might have some friends coming over on Saturday night. I’m a little worried about it and I still might have to cancel. The kids are looking forward to it so they’ve been helping all weekend but it might not be enough. I will be really sad if I have to cancel this because we have too much of a mess here. It’s a pretty common thing to happen here though. There’s a lot of times that we can’t have people over. It’s one of the biggest reasons that I want this house cleaned out.
