Simplifying For Sanity #1 Master Bedroom


I really wanted to do my living room this week. . .

But, on Wednesday 1400 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies embarked upon my house and well, there were cookies everywhere. So I decided to do the Master Bedroom. This is how it looked last week. . .


I had my work cut out for me.

I threw a lot of stuff away. I bagged up a few things for the Thrift Store. I put away the clean clothes and washed the dirty ones. I found every little toy and book, etc. that my little ones had brought to my room and I put them away.

Here is my finished product.



I know, the closet door is closed. My husband has a few things in there that he needs to sort out. I am boycotting doing it for him. Once he does his part I will post a pic of the clean closet, too. I promise.

I am not only cleaning and decluttering rooms, I am also working on my life. If you have a chance, check out my restoration post. I am so thankful that God isn't finished with me yet.

You did a wonderful job! I have four kids and it gets very tiring picking up their stuff from various rooms in the house. I bet you feel good about what you've accomplished!

Good Job! I need to tackle my closet and go through the piles of clothes too.

It does make a person feel so good to have things neat and in order!

I am glad my daughter Lynnette is good at motivating people with her "Simplifing Fof Sanity".

Have a great day.
