Reflections on Stage One Declutter: Clothing

Looking back over the past few weeks of my new adventure makes me feel proud.  The dressers and closets are beginning to look better.  I feel less rushed in the morning before school because I can actually find clothes for the kids and myself.  I don't have to spend extra time routing through clothes that don't fit to find the ones that do. I can easily see what the choices are for the morning and help the kids choose something quickly.  The new system for clothes is really working for us!

I have made progress in the bedrooms but the main living spaces of the house still feel weighed down and cluttered.  Books, papers, arts and crafts items, toys, movies, (and the list goes on) are still everywhere!  The next few days are going to be focused on the next two stages of Marie Kondo's system for tiding: books and papers.  Stay tuned for more decluttering adventures and shocking photos!

    1. I have found that I now really enjoy folding laundry now. Which is totally crazy! I like to be able to open the dresser drawers and find exactly what I need, and quickly too. No more weeding through laundry baskets.
