Ya’ll know I love me a good declutter!
I had been putting this mini declutter project off for too long. While decluttering is freeing and relaxing after its finished, it can often time be messy and slightly a pest when you’re in the middle of it.
Even though I don’t like the messy process, I am nearly obsessed with the minimalist result.
Thankfully most of my home is in no need of decluttering so I only had a few things on my list to get done:
- Shelf Storage Bins
- Jewelry Box
I was NOT looking forward to my mug declutter. Mugs are one of the few things I have a lot of. For whatever reason, mugs are my love language. Having a cup of strong coffee in a cute mug is my cheap form of therapy. Don’t knock it till you try it! Over the years I have collected mugs that screamed at me (every mug speaks to me so I need to just pay attention to the ones that scream). I have donated one here, another there. But with a smaller kitchen cupboard to store them in, I knew it was time to actually get rid of a few ALL AT ONCE!
My shelf storage bins used to be organized but two years and two kids later they have become a bit of a junk drawer. Even though you can’t tell from looking at the bins, I was fully aware of the mess inside. That hidden mess was in the back of my mid for too long. Because I simply wanted order, it was easy for me to get rid of the items each bin held. I’m fairly certain I either donated, recycled, or threw out a good 70% of everything.
Jewelry box was another easy one. I simply knew which accessories I wore on a regular basis, and which pieces were collecting dust. Once I opened the box up and started digging through it was incredibly easy to decide on what stayed and what went.
Give my video a watch to see the very really STRUGGLE in picking which mugs I would donate.
Like I said, the process is messy and straight up tedious. Yet I am so happy with the final result. Just knowing there is that much less in my home is a huge relief!
