Joining here! in for the PURGE!ADDED: my declutter numbers!

I found this sub-forum last night...up till then I was unaware of its existence!
I took pics of kids bedroom this morning...I am too ashamed to share them at the moment...but so far out their itsy bitsy loft...that 4 girls share...I collected...6 garbage bags stuffed full of clothes, stuffed animals and random junk. Plus 1 garbage bag of just stuff that needs to go to the TRASH! oh and 1 bug tub of clothes that somebody will grow into.

I discovered that my children are definate hoarders! Everything has sentimental value..... so a few tears were shed this morning.
but they like how it looks now. Though by a minimalist eye it is still FAR to cluttered. But its a start and we can keep on decluttering as we go, right?

Whew, I feel like I can breathe!

Look out playroom...here I come!



Adding: My declutter list:
So I can stay motivated by comming here and seeing how much we have done!

activity center
box of baby toys
potty chair



SOLD!!

GO MAMA GO!!

I remember when I first started tackling my home, it felt overwhelming and emotional but it's so amazing to be free of clutter and happy. Keep it up hon!

Re: Joining here! in for the PURGE!

Thanks mama's! But really there is some definate shame here...its really , really bad.
I cleaned it up two weeks ago and rarely ever go up there..but when stuff starts overflowing down the stairs...I had to take a look see......this is what a clothes bomb looks like... the entire contents of two trashbags of clothes we were given..plus everything that was supposed to be in the drawers...plus all the clean lundry I fold and send upstairs...was vomited all over the place!




And yes...that is the size of the room..you are seeing the entire room in this pic. I am standing at the top of the stairs. That much stuff in that tiny little space is crazy!!........
FYI ..besides the playroom...the rest of my house DOES NOT LOOK like this!! LOL!!
I am cowering in shame...
