Organizational and Decluttering Project - Day 1

As I mentioned in a post a few days ago my life was in need of some rearranging as well as organizing. Not to mention just some plan old cleaning up. The book I am loosely following for this massive endeavor is One Year to an Organized Life, only I speeding it up to all be finished by August.
Today I bit the bullet and started on my bedroom closet and attic space. You see in our small cabin the only real storage space is in the attic that you get to by walking through my closet. First off the closet needing freshening up to even get to the attic space.

Next was tackling the attic. I was able to condense some boxes and storage containers that had clothing I was holding on to for ...... I have no idea why I was holding on to much of it.

As you can see the attic still needs some extra help that will come a little more down the road.

In the end I toted 4 garbage bags full of clothes and linens to a local thrift shop that sells merchandise to raise funds for a local abuse shelter. It felt so good to get rid of some of the "stuff" that literally weighs me down. Now off to the next big area that needs help - the laundry/pantry room. What areas of your house are in need of some TLC??

My entire house could do with a good declutter but I keep putting it off. At some stage we will have to move everything out and vacate the house for 6 weeks while the earthquake damage is re-repaired (it wast done properly the first time around). That seems like an ideal time to declutter. Except it keeps getting delayed and the need for a declutter gets ever more pressing!

With all the renovations, we have been decluttering as we go. The attic was done and more can still be done there.....the girls closets were done, mine is next. When the new bookshelves are built, I will go through all my books. That will be very hard but is very necessary!

Yes, our entire house needs decluttering. Thanks so much for posting on this--you are helping to get me going a bit faster. My closet is unbelievable. I will email you soon.
