Declutter update; bedroom

PackratA few days ago, I wrote how I was finally reorganizing my bedroom.

My bedroom was crying out for a Declutter makeover, since I’ve had crafts set up in my bedroom for a while, but aside from neat stacks of my crafting bin. There really wasn’t a set pattern to what I was doing. I’m the type that loves to be organized, and so having craft projects mixed with my regular bedroom items…bothered me.

I admit to being a packrat… But, I’m a neat packrat! ย I inherited that trait from my father.ย The good thing is; I’ve always been a neat packrat. My father isn’t. I can still hear my mother fussing about his sloppy packrat tendencies.

Fast forward to now… I’m pleased to say that the room looks so much better. In the process of revamping my bedroom, I also filled four trash bags (neatly stacked of course) with clothing. Additionally, I threw away six trash bags of items too. When I was moving all those items out of my bedroom, I couldn’t help but wonder how I managed to keep everything neat!

My daughter loves the change, and so naturally when she’s creating a story, or working on a drawing. I’m finding her sprawled on my hardwood floor surrounded by her art supplies. Her clutter is temporary, and leaves when she’s finished.

Now that I think about it, her room could use some decluttering too. It looks as though I’ve found my next ‘declutter project’. Now, if I can only find the time to accomplish that! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I can’t say that I’m a packrat, but I have many acquaintances that are of such kind)

Good work Opal. We’ve also been trying to clean out unused stuff from our house. We have been doing it in batches, one room at a time. A bunch of junk that sorted out were then given to Charity. You do something good and you can get a tax refund for it ๐Ÿ™‚
