I've been pleasantly surprised during this process of going through 30 Day Clutter Bootcamp. If you are at all interested in this book, GET IT NOW....On February 1st, the price goes up. The book is full of so many wonderful ideas, tips, stories, encouragment...the list goes on and on.
Now on to my surprises....
I have been surprised at my willingness and desire to revisit almost every area I have already decluttered and find even more stuff to let go of. For example, I went back to my collection of classical music...I had one full box of cds that belonged only to me. I decided to buy a media book and put all those cds in it. Not only does this consolidate and save more space, it allows me to store them next to the stereo - not in the closet upstairs. As I went through the collection, I minimized it even more, keeping only the ones I truly loved.
My efforts seem to be rubbing off on my husband. Although I hoped this would happen, this was not my motivation. In fact, I'm doing all this decluttering secretly. I wanted to see if anyone would notice (particularly him). I also don't want to nag him to get rid of his stuff anymore. I don't know if he really has noticed, but yesterday I came home to find 10 items from his closet sitting on our bed. When I asked what the pile was for, he told me they are things he doesn't need or want anymore!
I'm also noticing new forms of clutter. Yesterday I realized I have "hangar clutter"
