Clear Out the Clutter: The Master Bedroom

Posted By Crystal Paine On April 13, 2010 @ 9:21 am In Clear Out the Clutter,LITE Feed (non-deal) Posts,Living Simply | Comments Disabled

Things are slowly taking shape for our garage sale this weekend and my pile of things to get rid of [1] has grown to a massive size. I think my stuff breeds behind closed doors or something because I really and truly have no idea how I can cull together such a huge garage sale pile every year–especially since I’m a minimalist [1]!

Since I didn’t get this posted last night as planned, I’ll likely be posting two Clear Out the Clutter Assignments [2] today. I hope I don’t overwhelm you! Just remember that you don’t have to do it all today. Take a week per room, if you need to.

Clear Out the Clutter Assignment #3

::Go through your Master Bedroom (including the closet and dressers) and ruthlessly clear out any and all clutter and unnecessary items you find. Consider passing on extra clothing to friends or donate it to someone in need. Or, add it to your garage sale pile!

::Tally up the approximate amount of items you’re getting rid of and input it into the Items Decluttered Tally Form [3] in order to be entered to win some fun prizes!

What I Accomplished

I told you a few days ago that I don’t have a computer desk [1], but I do use my top dresser drawer for extra storage. And sometimes, it gets a little out of hand. Like today:

(Um, and for the record, I have no idea how that red froggie ended up in my dresser; it was supposed to be in one of the garage sale boxes!)

There, much better!

My husband also went through his clothes–without even being prompted to do so!–and gave me a big pile of them to get rid of. I still need to go through my clothes and see if there are any that I haven’t worn in awhile. Although, since I only have a few outfits to begin with, it’s not that big of a chore!
