Throw it Away (Imperfect Homemaking Challenge)

Is your clutter closing in on you?

I feel like I am constantly decluttering, but things just seem to breed themselves overnight!

I know I have strange ideas about homemaking that I am working hard to overcome.  Things like “I can't do any deep cleaning until all the ‘regular' cleaning is done.”

Sometimes I also forget that it's not a rule that I can't declutter unless everything else is clean.

You know what's even more crazy?  Sometimes I become blind to things that are absolute trash!

My house is constantly strewn with little bitty papers that my kids were using to make play money or art projects, or who-knows-what.  It all looks like trash even though it's special treasure to them.  So when a piece of real trash is lying around, sometimes I don't even notice it.

Wouldn't it be better to teach your kids not to leave their papers strewn around in the first place?

Yes. Yes it would.  But they are still little, and still learning.  Kids need lots of repetition.

Today's Challenge: Find 10 things to throw away.


Just by throwing away 10 things, your house will feel lighter and more manageable.
