Declutter Check-In #3

It’s amazing what a couple bookshelves will do. And that should tell you what was in most of those boxes I had sitting around…

I still have a few boxes sitting in the hallway full of stuff to get rid of, and there is still a pile in one corner of my bedroom, but I’ve made huge inroads into this mess.

Here’s the bedroom. I actually slept in there last night for the first time since we moved in almost two months ago. There are a few boxes still there. Those are boxes I’ve already sorted and combined of stuff I’m keeping and will be putting in bins – when I get those cleaned out.

I had to take two pictures, because my desk is now in the corner I stood in to get the original picture.

I had to take two pictures, because my desk is now in the corner I stood in to get the original picture so I couldn’t get the same angle.

 

And here’s the living room/dining room. Again, still a few boxes, but nothing like before.

The top two pics are before. Bottom are after. You can see the fireplace (which I don't use, obviously), and the outlets as reference points.

I think I’ve gotten past the easy stuff and the remaining stuff will take more time to go through – papers I need to sort and make sure there is nothing important before I recycle – that kind of thing. But at least now I have hope that I can actually finish sometime this year. LOL
