Day 13: Thirteen Days in “Decluttering Mode”

Thirteen days into the New Year and there’s no stopping me. Things are definitely looking tidier around here, particularly the bedroom. It’s amazing how different I feel about the clutter as well. I’m no longer looking at it as a massive job. If I notice a problem area, I just make a mental note that I’ll get to it one day this year.

Today my new ironing board cover arrived from Amazon, so my challenge was to clear the area on and around the ironing board. The old cover had definitely seen better days! I really don’t know why it took me so long to change it.

Everything that was on and under the ironing table also got put away or thrown away. I could think of a number of excuses why things have got shoved under it over the last month or so, but what I’m certain about is that I am NEVER going to let it get like the messy picture below again. NEVER!

If I keep on top of all thirteen things that I’ve introduced into the house so far this year, I’ll be onto something.

So far, so good.

Until tomorrow…
