Peek at my week

Ok, so these are actually photos from last week and weekend, but the amount of clutter everywhere hasn't seemed to go away, so although the areas might be different this week, this is basically what I've been wading through this week. I find it so funny that some days I can look around and feel that I've gotten a handle on the clutter in our home, and then not even a week goes by and all of a sudden it is out of control... At least we are working on controlling the clutter, with a combination of better storage solutions and boxes to fill to give away :)

Little M's closet part way through her makeover, hopefully more details to come after this weekend!

Contents of Little M's closet spread over the spare room, along with boxes of outgrown baby clothes & other items
Whew. Looking back at these piles makes me glad I'm started down the path of dealing with them! As of last night I had 3 boxes worth of things to give away sitting in the spare room. And if my husband manages to convince me we don't need to keep all of Little M's outgrown clothes in case we have another girl next time, well then there might be a heck of a lot more boxes to add to that give-away pile! Ah... spring organizing!


  1. I love the tea party picture! So adorable.

  2. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, that's gotta feel good! Keep up the good work!

  3. My family had a superstition - never give away the baby paraphenalia until menopause is looking you in the face. When our Katie was expected, one of my aunts, who was close to that point, *loaned* me a crib, highchair, etc. In my turn, I loaned them on.
    Keep the best stuff, lose the rest. The next kid, even if a girl, might have entirely different colouring.

    1. Haha I'll keep that in mind Mary :) I figure if we have the space under the bed in the spare room I might as well just shove the boxes under there for the time being, no sense going through until I know I have to, either for lack of space or needing those clothes again in the future!
