Two Months Later... I can LIVE in my Living Room!

I am done with my Living Room! D-O-N-E!!!
I have decluttered E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!

I hope the clutter creature has learned his lesson for now... He is no match for The Masked Mommy!

I wish my house were as organized as my living room is. Every surface cleaned, every part vacuumed, a place for everything and everything in its place. I have come a really long way since January 1st. Check out the progression of my living room...

Clutter corner. This mess all sat behind our recliner all the time. Believe it or not, this was our version of "clean" because the books and stuff are stacked. It has a table cloth because of the massive amount of junk under there...

This is where I was 2 months ago.
Unable to walk through my own living room.

Here is my living room "clean" in January.
I think it kinda looks like a yard sale.

Here is my February version. It's a big improvement.Nothing to sneeze at for sure.But with me being a super and all, I had higher expectations for our living room than this...

Here's my current version... finished (for now)! Yay!!!

My secret? Taking 2 truck loads of junk to Goodwill! Purge, purge, purge! I know it feels like you can't because your junk is not junk to you, but I promise you have too much stuff! You will feel so much better if you could just find a way to let it go!

Now Check out the rest of my Living Room:

You know what the craziest part is? I didn't buy anything to do this! I just rearranged the stuff I already had!

There are still some toys sitting around, but hey, we live in here! Check out Biblican Womanhood to see some more real people participating in Spring Cleaning for Normal People :-)

Awesome!! You are soooo inspirational. I need to purge, purge, purge, too. I started in the girl's room the other day, but came down sick. You give me HOPE!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and reading my kid interview. That was a lot of fun to do. I talked to them at different times, so they wouldn't copy each other's answers.

Take Care!
