Simply Clutter Free: Day 13

Ya’ll, I am not looking forward to today’s task. I’m not sure why, but I’m pretty sure it’s all the cords. I don’t like dealing with the cords and figuring out which device they below to. So in an effort to make this easier in the long run, I’m going to label each cord!

While I technically have our electronic stuff “organized” since it’s all in one box, we have added a few new things to our electronics inventory this year that I know are not in that box. I’m also sure there are some random cords that don’t belong to anything and batteries that are dead lying around somewhere.

Here are a few links I found on Pinterest with ideas for organizing electronics:

Simply Clutter Free: Day 12

I always said that once we’re in a bigger home, I hope to not store things under the beds. But… some things just work under there really well! Like the cushions for our deck chairs and wrapping paper/gift bags.

Today, I’m going to take care of the dust bunnies, and organize things underneath the beds. I think I’m even storing some pictures/paintings that I’ve been meaning to hang the walls. I’ll see how ambitious I feel, they may even end up on the wall by the end of the day. 🙂

I want to know, do you store stuff under your bed? Or do you have empty space underneath?

Simply Clutter Free: Day 11

We don’t have enough room in our kitchen for a junk drawer so I’d have to say that my nightstand does the honours well.   But it’s all useful junk!  You know, chocolate (when I need to escape the kids), flashlight, chapstick, books…

Honestly I’m not sure how good I can make the nightstand look, but I’m going to try! I’m sure I can find a proper home for some items. The bottom drawer was full of books, but I purged many books from there the other day.

I think as long as I have the top nicely cleared off, I’ll be happy. Now I hope my husband will get on board with his side!

How’s the state of your nightstand?

Simply Clutter Free: Day 10

It’s time today to see what kind of scary things are lurking in your bathroom cupboards!  I’m sure I’ll find a few long forgotten items because bathroom stuff just sort of got shoved in the cupboards when we moved! One thing I know for sure is that the cupboards and closet in our bathrooms are in need of some organization. I’m also looking forward to tossing quite a few things!

Here are a few links to inspiring bathroom organization ideas:

What is your bathroom cupboard situation like? Will this be an all day task or a short one?

Simply Clutter Free: Day 9

Ah books.  I’m so torn with books. I have some I’m keeping only because I loved reading them when I was younger and I thought my daughters might enjoy them one day.  Silly?  I’m not sure!  However, today, I am determined to purge at least a few books.

I’ve been buying (and borrowing) less books lately because I bought a Kindle a couple of years ago. I avoided those electronic devices for so long, but in the end they really spoke to my “wanting less clutter” side. And now I’m in love with the thing. I actually read more often! And I love that I can have so many books when we go away!

As you might have guessed, today’s activity for the Simply Clutter Free Challenge is to sort through our books. I know I have some books that I think some friends of mine will enjoy so I’ll be giving those away.

Do you have books you need to be rid of?  How do you ‘rid’ them? Sell them? Donate them?
