    I need more space and less stuff!

    Who is with me on this?

    Declutter any area of your house where you can think of at least 5 things to get rid of without even looking!
    For me, this is going to be my closet.

    Ready? Set, GO!

    I will do it.
    I have a closet in mind also.....one at the bottom of the stairs where stuff gets thrown when it isn't welcome anywhere else but not ready to be pitched...certainly some of it can go bye bye today.

    So, I pulled out costume stuff out of a suitcase in my closet, plus purged the kids closet....I now have 4 trash bags of clothes to donate/consign piled in my livingroom!

    I threw out
    old hair clippers (dull and replaced long ago)
    rags for cleaning that were taking up space and would never be used
    old remotes to electronics long gone
    junk, junk and more junk
    Probably one plastic kitchen garbage bag full but it made a huge difference in the order of the closet.

    I also attacked my linen closet and pitched (for a thrift shop pick up next week),
    and old twin comforter
    bunch of bed sheets and pillow cases I am sick of seeing
    placemats from the 1980's I don't like anymore and their matching napkins (cows on green gingham)
