Roughly 2 weeks before school starts

Here that means it is decluttering season. I have already schedule Purple Heart to come pick up whatever I deem clutter. So, the bags have been rolling down the stairs and started filling up the front porch.

I hope to finish the upstairs today. That means the laundry monster must be tackled and the boys room. I have already done #4's desk area and I just sent him up to push everything out from underneath his bed. #1,2,and 3 are working on their desks because they know I am ruthless (#4 didn't see the entire garbage bag of stuff I took out of his area). Daddy set the standard today nothing but 5 things out on the top of their desk or dresser. Everything else must be in a drawer, box, or put away. I had to leave their room because the dust was so thick my head was pounding (gotta love a dust allergy). So, I will eat lunch, take an exedrin and head back to the battle.

Already done: linen cupboard, kids bathroom, laundry area, girls room, office (but not the closet)

Left for today: boys room and my room cause all the laundry is piled in there

Off to fill the crockpot for dinner. It is going to be a long day.

my de cluttering is due to a move to Wisconsin . So I understand long needed breaks


The days are so different. Instead of mess and homeschool teaching I have a DH working from home and quiet until 2:54 when #6 (who is 10)...
