I discovered last week that one of my favorite bloggers is hosting Project: Simplify in order to help us declutter. I started working outside the home about a month ago. While it’s been quite a transition for me, my family seems to be dealing with it just fine. Hmm…I’m not sure what to think of that. Anyway…though I’m getting a late start in this decluttering party, it’s never too late because it’s an on-going task in my home.
My husband and teens have been great at picking up the slack so I can rest when I get home after 6-8 hours on my feet. (I’m back in retail at one of my favorite stores, Hobby Lobby.) But there are minor/major projects I have in mind that my sweet hubby can’t really tackle without me, though he might like to, because I’m a bit OCD about him touching my stuff. He’s tossed out too many things I wanted.
Tsh’s weekly project ideas seem manageable for me and my schedule. This week’s hot spot is kids’ toys and clothes. My teens don’t have lots of toys like they used to; they have clothes, schoolwork, art & craft projects, instruments and electronics. They could definitely use help sorting, organizing and donating their stuff. I plan to get boxes labeled and get my family started so that when I’m at work, they can be “at work” on decluttering.
