It took me all week to get it done, because of a sick kid and a work deadline, but I have officially cleaned out my entire walk-in closet and decluttered it of my extraneous possessions. This includes all clothes, jewelry, makeup, and a few other things like books and knick knacks (because we have bookshelves in there and not enough bookshelf space in the rest of the house). I feel so amazing when I walk in there, I just can't believe how good that accomplishment feels! I've been slowly decluttering the house, a drawer here, a section there, but I haven't yet finished a room, so this represents a huge step forward for me to not have to worry about my closet at all.
What my cleaned and decluttered space leaves out there in the open for us to see is my husband's clutter. But I have confidence that he will be inspired to tackle his space too. He'll definitely be excited by the empty bookshelves.
Next up, my bathroom, which includes medicines and toiletries.
I have a question for you all. What do you think is a good frequency for going back to re-declutter your items? I want to program into my online task manager a reminder to go back to my clothes, jewelry, etc. How frequently would you declutter those in an ideal world?
