Boot Camp - Days 17, 18 and 19

As I continue to chip away at some harder areas of clutter, I will look ahead and post about three days in the book that I don't have much to post about. It felt so good to take a car load full of stuff to Goodwill today. I was amazed that I had found that much more stuff to get rid of.

Collections: I don't really have any collections - at least nothing that's not being covered by other days.

Electronics: We don't have unused electronics sitting around so we are good in this area. This area also falls under my husband's jurisdiction.

Tools: This is another area that is not within my control to declutter. Believe me, if it was we would have PILES of stuff to get rid of!

I was inspired to give our coat closet a make-over today with a quick decluttering session. Now that I have fewer shoes, I wanted to see if we could do without the hanging shoe organizer. That's one thing I am noticing - many of my attempts to organize (baskets, drawer dividers, hanging shoe things....) - these can be clutter themselves.



I love that the only things on the shelf are baskets for our gloves, hats, scarves, etc. There are no longer shoe boxes and bags. Everything has a place and it's so much more accessible. This is also the closet where we keep our vacuum - it's tucked into the corner and is much easier to get in and out without the hanging shoe organizer.


  1. I "lurv" how you have a language of your own!

  2. So does that mean you got rid of some more shoes? You're doing great Jill! I love the before and after.
