This is our extra bedroom. It’s our guest room/ game room/ sewing room/ garbage collecting room. Everything in the house that needs a temporary home gets thrown in here. It’s kind of like a black hole. Things go into this room and are never seen from again.
This week, I’m on a mission. I’m going to go through every shelf, drawer, corner and hidey hole and get rid of the clutter.
I found this great decluttering tool over at The Red Chair Blog. I love what it says. The parts about “If I were free from guilt…” and “Did I choose to bring it into my life?” really speak to me.
We’re lucky to have an extra bedroom, but our house is far from spacious so we really can’t just waste this square footage. I really want to improve this room’s functionality and add some style at the same time so I don’t have to close this door when we have people over. It needs to be a place where my 14 year old and his friends can play games, where I can sew or craft and where the Grandmas can stay when they visit. I think it’s a tall order.
Linking up to Anti-Procrastination Tuesday at New Nostalgia.
