The Happy Crazy House

remodeling and other family adventures

Depending on who you follow on Pinterest…this could be a topic you have seen so many times you could puke.  Well…me too.  Until I came across this site and this article.

Now, over the past couple of years I have heard the terms downsizing, decluttering, small living, etc.  It sounds so freeing….for other people.  I never thought I would drink the Kool Aid.  A few articles that I was drawn into later and I realized that there are things in my house that I haven’t touched for months.  I decided to take a step and worked on my closet.

Here is my ‘After’:

Not gunna lie…..I let it get super messy again.  BUT I have not added to it, which is good.  I was able to get it cleaned up in 10 minutes which is a miracle and a testament to keeping only the things you wear.

So – I have decided to start working on each room in the house.  I hope to get through the whole house by mid October.  My plan is to do an initial run through that mimics this……http://redefinedmom.com/how-to-declutter-your-house-in-five-minutes/  and then do a second round that is a more cut throat.
