365 in 365: April

Posted on: May 2, 2011

Time for another Decluttering Challenge update!

Jen over at IHeart Organizing issued a “Project Purge” challenge for the month of April and she’s been inspiring her readers to declutter their front entries, kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms throughout the month.

I recently decluttered both bathrooms and our front entry way so I focused on the kitchen and our master bedroom.  In our bedroom, I got rid of several shirts that I’d been hanging on to for no good reason but hadn’t worn in more than two years.  I found a stash of hubby’s socks with holes in them, so those went into the garbage as well:

In the kitchen, I’ve reorganized my baking cabinet and tupperware cabinet recently so I focused on the pantry cabinets.  I managed to purge a whooping 22 items from two cabinets alone!  It’s amazing how much stuff gets pushed to the back when new food comes in!

Here’s how I did for the month of April:
Kitchen:  22
Bedroom:  13
Bathroom:  4
Miscellaneous:  6

April Total:  45   Running Total:  380!
I’ve reached my goal of decluttering 365 items and I still have two months left to go!

Great job! I keep finding things to declutter, just when I think I’m done!
