My life, my house, there's too much clutter. All summer long we come in, throw our stuff down, go back out, come in, throw our stuff down, go back out.... Now, summer is over, and I'm living in way too much clutter.
So, I'm issuing myself a challenge. I really suck at challenges. I'd never do good on a reality show. But I need to get this place picked up. Now.
I'll start with the dining room. I'm not going post a "before" picture because it's just too bad. First, there's my dining room table which normally seats 6. Right now only two can eat at it. And sometimes I have to clear it just so the kids can eat breakfast. One of our rules was that was always eat as a family no matter how busy life gets. We're not doing that right now. Then we have all of my arts and crafts "crap", as my hubby calls it! He bought me such a nice organizer for our anniversary and I filled it, but didn't organize anything. So I need to really organize all my supplies so that I can start making things again (on my *clean* table!)
After the dining room is the living room, but we'll get to that later.
Anyone else up for a de-cluttering challenge? It's like a diet, no fun to do on your own! Leave me a comment, let me know I'm not the only one swimming in clutter right now.
I'll post an *after* picture because, let's face it, those are just far more fun!
