could i actually do this?

Mar 3, 2011

I haven’t been focused on decluttering at all lately and I am thinking it just may be time to start again. Here is a brilliant cleaning/decluttering idea. I am letting it percolate in my mind to see if I am really up to such a task. Part of it sounds so exciting and part of it sounds dreadful. I can’t imagine adding another thing on to my already full plate, but I am thinking it would be totally worth it to have 40 bags of stuff out of my house. Surely, the empty space would free up my mind, heart, and time for other things, so it would all even out in the end, right?

Sound intriguing to anyone else? If so, let me know and maybe we could be accountability partners!

    Can you do it? Yes you can!!!!!

  2. There’s this website I love . . . . . . She has some great de-cluttering tips, and it all revolves around spending 10-15 minutes a day and then moving on with your life. That’s my kind of program.

      I have tried flylady…SO tried it. I love it in theory, I fail at application. Thank you for the suggestion though…perhaps I need to retry it. Or not???????

    I <3 the idea. I know that Ash Wednesday was last week, but I think we should still do this, just start a bit late. Can I be your accountability partner? Please, please, please. Will you be mine? Love you.

      Katherine…okay, here’s a plan. Let’s make our lists today of which rooms we will focus on each day. Then each day we email each other with what bag of stuff we got rid of.
