The Crazy Suburban Mom: Fist bumps to everyone cleaning this weekend!

Fist bumps to everyone cleaning this weekend!

More decluttering this weekend because I don't have Saturdays off -- Not that I'm pointing any nacho holding football watching privates-scratching um, fingers.

Just sayin'

Now that (lack of) blame assessment is out of the way,  let's move on.  Yesterday I did one part of the dining room and this morning I moved on to another; lest you think the room is big - It's not.  I'm slow.

This (third and last) dining room nook has a shelving unit that held homeless tchotchkephenalia.


I decided to house some pots and pans there.  I don't have enough cabinet space or room for a ceiling rack so some of the pots live here when not in use.


I don't think my family will like it much, it's not the most efficient place to find things but it is the most efficient use of space and most importantly, I like it and it makes me happy.

And when Mommy's happy everyone's well...  At least not miserable.


I'm going to have a Declutter Fest 2011 Related Giveaway next week so hope everyone's cleaning too!

PS - Here's the two areas in vitro - This gives you an idea how small the room really is (and how slow I am).  It took me over 24 hours to get to two areas about five feet apart.

I've been taking today off from the cleaning, but have done plenty after work, throughout the week. Still, fistbumps to you! :)

I think you've been making excellent progress. We've been in our house for a year and a half now and I keep saying "I really need to sort out this cupboard or that bin" and just not getting to it. I was recently gifted a sunbeam mixer- add to that my growing pyrex stash and I really need to declutter to make room for the stuff that I really want around here! :)

Keep it up!

We were going to start decluttering our kitchen cabinets the Alton Brown way. You make 3 piles. Pile 1 is things you use all the time, pile 2 is the things you use sometimes and pile 3 is the things you never use.

Pile 1 ended up with 2 sauce and 1 frying pan. Pile 2 had a roaster and pile 3 had everything else.

We discovered we had a lot of pots and pans we don't use. Umm... We eat out and order delivery food a lot.

I'm afraid when we start on the bedroom, I'll be in pile 3! LOL
