My original goal was to declutter the upstairs (hall closets, craft area and my bedroom), the office and the basement. What was I thinking! What I accomplished was my bedroom and the office. The other spaces will have to wait until after VBS...like at least a week after, as I plan to crash for the week following!
When you see the before pictures of the office/school/business/some craft/anything room, maybe you will understand...or run screaming from your monitor to call social services on me! Let's just say, prepare yourself. And just a disclaimer...most of my house does not look like this...honest.
Ahem...I had a third picture of the desk area. I have no idea what happened to it...I think it broke my camera. Anyway, to quote Niecy from Clean House...it was a Hot Mess!
Keep in mind this was just a declutter job. It is still ugly, but so much more functional. Pretty will come later. Here it is the after:
No more boxes on the floor!!! Ahhh...the room can breath again. I could give you a hundred excuses for why/how it got that way...and they would all be legit. But they would still be excuses. I just needed to Gitter Done!
I also decluttered my bedroom too, but no pictures for now. I'll post those after I remodel it and show you the before and after. You can only take so much ugly at one time. It was not nearly as messy as this, just needed decluttering and moving some things around. I posted about that here.
And one more project I did this week. I planted the garden. It wasn't so much procrastination, but it's been very wet and my husband had to till it...so I waited. Finally it is in...and it looks like a graveyard right now.
I am linking this up to Donna's Gitter Done Challenge. Go see what everyone else has been up to. There's been some major accomplishments this week!
