DH complained about the things on the shelves in two of the closets in our bedroom. We have the doors off of them and use them for a dresser and a TV. His dad built the house and the back two bedrooms have 2 closets on 1 wall and a walk-through on another. I cleaned off those 2 shelves and put everything on the bed in the guest room. Last night I went through the basket and 2 small boxes that had things of mine. I was able to purge them down to just a handfull of items. Most of it was tossed away. HEY FOR ME!!!
I did leave the rest for dh to go through. My hope is he will get to it tomorrow since he will be off work.
My moto for 2017...Do what you need to do. Count what you want to count. Enjoy the process.
