Clearing out household clutter

I have been inspired to jump into 2011 and clear out the clutter in our home. And this weekend has been amazing! Both my husband and I have been purging stuff left and right. Now we're no where near done, but we have been forced to slow down because our trash cans are overflowing. One of the many things I did was tackle the worst "junk" drawer in our house, my makeup drawer. This was the first assignment in A Bowl Full of Lemon's 21 Days to Getting Organized Challenge.


I learned about the challenge from my BFF and thought it would be a good jump start to clearing out clutter (well honestly, at first I thought 21 days was way too aggressive for my house, but then I decided I should at least give it a try). I have to say I am surprised at how much junk was in the drawer, how quickly the drawer was reorganized (just over 30 minutes) and how good it felt. Stay tuned to see if I can keep up......

Hi Jen, your draw looks great. Thanks for your comments on my site, and if you think I had a challenge with the draws wait until you see my desk. I think I am going to have to take the week to finish that challenge.

Hey Jenn, not bad hugh. This challenge should be pretty cool, if we stick with it. Good luck, and THANK YOU for visiting me and my green desk.

Keep it up girl, can't wait to see more organization!!
