My last decluttering laundry room/scrapbooking area!

My scrapbooking corner

After a week of feeling horrible due to allergies...I took my anger & frustration out on my laundry room. I should have taken before pics! This is a huge improvement....10 shredder bins later & 3 huge bags of trash....this is what I had left! My scrapbooking area is VERY organized now & I can actually work in the area! I am thrilled! find the time to scrapbook!

Yard Sale Sucess!!!

One small bag.....that's all that remains from the mountain of baby items that were once stacked in my garage & stored under my house. My husband and son didn't even get the crib & changing table out of my mini van to set it up at the neighbors before someone came running to ask me how much I wanted for it!!! I am sure I could have gotten more but I asked for $40 for the set. I wanted it gone!!! The girl bought it along with the Classic Pooh bedding for it for a total of $60. A steal to say the least, but isn't that what yard sales are all about??? As the day progressed, things that weren't moving got marked down...eventually I was left with a handful of items on a table. I couldn't be more excited....Here's a picture of my beautiful & clean garage along with the small bag of what is left for donations to be picked up on Monday. I am terribly excited!!!

Yard Sale Day!!!

Today is the day!!! Our community garage sale day! I am excited b/c I am hoping to get rid of the remaining baby items that are stored in my garage & make a little cash in the process. I am praying that the rain holds off though!! I don't have much left to sell & I am pricing it to move. I don't want it & it needs to go! What doesn't sell today will be picked up by the Vietnam Vets on Monday. I scheduled the pick up several days ago.

Decluttering the garage has been a long & tedious process and I am relieved that today will be the final day of the big decluttering. All that remains is a day in the garage with the shredder! Our garage has been cluttered since the day we bought the house in 2003! Wooo hooo!!!

When I get on a roll!

My linen closet. It was a disaster but after about a 1/2 hour, I had 2 bags of trash & a clean & organized closet!!!

Look at this mess....then the ahhhhh-fter!

Declutting Diva Mode

See what a disaster it was before!!! Yikes!!!

Spring has sprung in my little corner of the world here in OH! Once it hits, I instinctively become a decluttering diva. I love to declutter & organize. Sometimes, I wonder if that's why I let things get out of hand again! LOL!
I can now easily locate everything in my closet. I also find that I do not dread putting away my laundry b/c there is room and a place to put it away!
