Clutter Challenge

It's Sunday already!!  Eek... I feel like I haven't accomplished much this weekend, as far as the house goes.  I did, however, have a great time spending time with all my family.  I think we're going to start planning for monthly game nights, which is incredibly fantastic because most times we only get together if we take a family weekend trip and that only happens about once a year.

I'm really happy to announce that I picked out the kids room color, Classic Khaki, thanks to the help of Olympic Creative Color Compos.  For once I found paint color to be an easy decision.

I already know that August is going to be a very busy month for us, but I'm really hoping all the painting in their room will be complete by the end of it.

Well, the real reason I'm posting is to share another personal challenge that I'm planning on taking if living small isn't challenging enough.  I picked up the book 10,0001 Ways to Declutter Your Home on a Small Budget, my hopes are to post about each suggestion from the book I took on.  Most likely I won't take on all of them, since some of them are irrelevant to me.

I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea or anything, I don't live in a pig sty.  But there is a lot of disorganization in our home that leaves me stumped or unable to move on to the next project.  This is not going to be easy for me because I feel like I have some hoarding tendencies (you should see our shed).  So this is going to be my down and dirty, lets get to the bottom of this problem challenge.  Step by step my family and I are to become clutter free and we're going to share all the good, bad, and ugly with the world!!!

The plans are to take baby steps.  Tomorrow we're going to take on bills, junk mail and magazines!!  Bring it mailman - BRING IT!
