Clutter Busting Challenge: Update #4 Final

"If you want to FLY, you have to give up the things that weigh you down." "You can't organize clutter, you can only get rid of it." ~Flylady

We need less stuff. It makes your life feel freer and fuller than having stuff cluttering up your life and space. It causes you less stress if you don’t have to clean around the stuff.  You will have less to deal with than having to live with the excess stuff. Don't expect the stuff to go away right away because it’s a process that will take time. Don't replace stuff with more stuff. Give your things to others who may need them and throw out the useless, unnecessary items.

The things I got rid of since my last update:

A whole lot of small craft stuff.

My husband and I moved to a bigger bedroom this week and as we redid it we had a stack of curtains, pillow cases, and sheets that we no longer need.

We updated our bathroom this week so these are the things that didn't go back in and will be donated.

A lot of wire hangers from the clothes my stepdad didn't need.

The stack of clothes my stepdad didn't need and a baby suit.

A coat my husband bought at a yard sale and never wore.

Tupperware that I never use, a pillow, two books, and a small bag.

A blanket, dress shirt, a clock, vase with flowers and flower swag we won't be using in our room redo, lace, flower container, and the book series I read this month.

Two old school chairs.

This is the end of the Challenge for May but I will continue to purge things from my home as needed.
