Noah's Decluttering

Noah is taking charge of decluttering this morning.  He wanted to organize his box of toys.  I like it!  He is getting rid of clutter & moving toys to where they should be.  :-)

Happy Decluttering!

Craft Box

I took everything out of our craft box this morning.  I threw away old glue, broken popsicle sticks, worn out paint brushes & other clutter.  I moved some of the supplies to where they belong & I put the rest of the supplies back into the craft box.

Happy Decluttering!

Our crayon basket was overflowing with crayons.  I threw away the old, broken crayons & now we have a half-full basket of nice looking, fully functioning crayons.  It looks so much better & now crayons won't be falling onto the floor when the kids carry the basket around.  :-)

Happy Decluttering & Have a great weekend!

New Favorite Coat

Noah has a coat that he absolutely loves, but it is stained & it has a hole in it.  He had another very nice looking coat tucked away in his closet, so I dug it out today & announced that he now has a new favorite coat.  Luckily, he agreed!  I am getting rid of his worn out coat before he changes his mind!

Happy Decluttering!

Noah's pajamas

Last night, Noah wore a pajama shirt that didn't cover his belly & pajama pants that didn't reach his ankles.  It was quite the sight!  I bought him new pajamas today, so his too small pajamas, plus a few pajama pants without tops will be given away.

Happy Decluttering!

Hidden Clutter

Noah & I had a picnic in the Yukon today.  When I lifted up the seats to make a flat surface, I discovered hidden trash & toys.  I took this clutter out of the Yukon & threw it away or put it away.

Happy Decluttering!

Shoe Box

I have been tripping over a shoe box that Noah was collecting buttons in.  My buttons that I already have a container for.  I put the buttons away and threw the box away.

Happy Decluttering & Have a great weekend!

Wash cloths

I am done using wash cloths to clean sticky faces & hands, so I am simplifying them.  Well, some of them anyway.  Matt is going to use some, I saved a few for cleaning & Zoe is bringing one to youth conference. 

Happy Decluttering!

I had a pile of school papers & mail that I finally went through today.  My sweet sister-in-law bought me containers to get rid of my kitchen paper clutter, but I still pile papers on our washer.  :-(

Happy Decluttering & Have a Great Weekend!

Knitting Needles

We had a Relief Society activity a few months ago where we learned how to knit.  I used my grandmother's knitting needles and did a tiny bit of knitting.  I brought home my grandmother's knitting needles and put the needles & yarn in a drawer.  I know myself.  I will never get the knitting out again, so I have the needles in a bag to bring to my grandmother tomorrow.

Do you have unfinished projects around that you should simplify?  Happy Decluttering!

Lawn Clutter

Now that the snow has melted off the lawn, I can work on cleaning it up.  There was some trash that I picked up and threw away today, including some broken toys.

Decluttered...sort of

We live in a trailer that doesn't have bedroom doors.  When the kids were younger, we put up a board at bedtime, so they wouldn't keep wandering out for whatever excuse they could think of.  We no longer use the board for bedtime, but it gets used once in awhile for projects.  I decided to simplify the board from our trailer and put it in the new house, which is currently the construction zone.  I consider this decluttering since I removed the board from our living space.  :-)

Happy Decluttering!

One too many times

I threw away a ribbon that came with a birthday package several months ago.  The girls were using it as a hair ribbon, but I got tired of seeing it on the floor.  So, I picked it up & tossed it.

Happy Decluttering!

Bath Toys

Kate wanted to bring a new McDonald's toy into the bath this evening.  I told her she could if we could simplify most of the bath toys that were already in the bathtub.  She agreed. :-)

Happy Decluttering & Have a great weekend!

Keep Searching

I had a hard time finding something to simplify today.  I finally came across an empty EpiPen container.  It is now in the trash.

A toy was left in the car and it got stepped on and broke.  I simplified it today.

I went through our container lids this evening and matched them to the containers (mostly sour cream containers).  We had a lot of extra lids, so I got rid of them.

Cluttered Shelf

I motivated myself to clean off a shelf in our bedroom that was collecting clutter & misplaced items.  I put the misplaced items where they go, found a new spot for some items that I wanted to keep, but not on the shelf & I threw away the items that were trash or useless.  The shelf space looks so much better!

Happy Decluttering!
