Today is the day!

We are bringing a whole trailer full of "stuff" collected around the house to declutter and bringing it to the dump and donation center!! I'm so excited! Hoping I can have another trailer full by next week too

I've also started back on flylady as of a couple weeks ago! So happy to have structure and routines to keep me motivated, the other day she sent out an email and the title is really helping motivate me "stuff is not love"

I told my husband I'm going to keep purging until I have enough time in the day to do my routines, have a clean house and sit and play with the children without having to think about the next 20 things I have to do

A HUGE added benefit if this has been my husband enjoys having a decluttered ad clean house so much that without my asking he as been tackling all kinds of household projects I have wanted done sine we moved here

He replaced the kitchen faucet, put up stair railings, replaced broken outlets and light switch covers, replaced all the hot air vent covers, etc. I'm so happy with how it's gone so far that I just want to keep on minimizing until I can look in each room and smile!

Re: Today is the day!

Nice job Tara! And I love that you're seeing DH step up to the plate and do a bunch of the things that needed to be done. I hope that happens here. Now that I'm decluttering I can understand why he didn't tackle any projects - in some cases it meant moving tons of stuff in order to get to the task he wanted to attempt so I'm hoping as the clutter is gone, DH will work on those little projects too! Your post is inspiring!

Yes yes yes! That is absolutely my goal too!!!

My DH is much more motivated to work in a decluttered house too. I let things slip for quit a while and boy has he been slacking My goal is to get it all caught up before DS is born!

Sounds like things are going great for you. I hope you reach your declutter happiness soon. (Not that it ever really stops though)

So happy for you! My DH is the same way, it's a good motivator for me.
