How to Declutter a Room FAST
On Saturday I took my sister's advice and emptied out the boys room completely, as if we were moving. I had the kids help me and we just unloaded everything into the living room. HOLY COW they had a lot of stuff. I never, ever would have guessed they had that much stuff till it literally filled our entire living and dining room. I also took apart the boys bunk bed since it was never that sturdy. I threw out the full mattress and put a queen in their temporarily till we can get 2 sets of single mattress bunk beds.
This project took me about 8 hours on Saturday and then 4 hours in between church service the next day to finish up. We were so proud and the boys were really, really happy. After church on Sunday night I went to the hospital to visit a friend. After being there for about an hour I decided to just spend the night there and hang out with her through the next morning. I finally left around 10:30am on Monday morning because I knew that I needed to start another project that day. It was garage day and we were gonna spend all day cleaning it out and getting rid of a lot. I have had a lot of favors asked of me in the last 2 weeks but I've had to just be really choosy about them in order to keep certain commitments I've made to get my house back in order. For the most part I've just ignored my phone because it's rang off the hook. Sometimes you just gotta do whatever it takes to get the job done and not be distracted. However, seeing my friend in the hospital was a necessity and I don't regret that of course. :)
