Declutter Challenge- April Update

Wow, another month gone, and again I forgot to post about the Declutter Challenge.  April was a great month for getting rid of things, so even though it's late, I wanted to share.  We cleaned out our game room, went through clothes and homeschool supplies and moved things around.

I was able to go through my youngest son's clothes again and gave away 38 pieces of clothing!  While going through our homeschool bookcase, I found 20 things we didn't really like, so I donated them.  I also found 36 magazines to recycle and 9 manuals of things we don't own any longer.

That brings April's total to 103 items!  My total for the year so far is now 283 items gone!  Feels good to get rid of stuff!

Good job, Nancy! Isn't it a great feeeling??
And you've inspired me to start decluttering as well! With only 365+ days before heading back to the States, and knowing that I can't take much with me, starting NOW will give me a huge head start!!

Now that "most" of our remodeling is finished, I can start cleaning. And I can't wait to get EVERYTHING back in order.

We've been decluttering too, out of necessity with the bedroom makeovers! We need to work on toys now! It's a job, but it's so rewarding when you see the results!

Have a great day, Nancy!
