Day 7 is here and I am halfway through! I have tossed an amazing amount of stuff already but there is still more that needs to go. Today I am focusing on the garage and/ or basement. We do not have a basement in our current home so I will be doing our garage.
We have a 2.5 car garage. Half of it is my workout room and the other half is piled with boxes of stuff that have been there since we moved. No we did not just move. Those boxes have been there for over 2 years! Just saying that makes me cringe. It is definitely time for most of that stuff to go.
I am one of those people who believes that if something has sat unopened and unused for longer than 6 months, it just needs to go. That being said below is a picture of the half of the garage where the boxes have sat.
The shelf below the yellow arrow is all my husbands steins that he started collecting before we got married. He wanted to keep those. The pink arrow is pointing to a table piled full of junk and things we do not want or use. This table of stuff was intended to be for a garage sale but I have never gotten around to doing one, so off to Goodwill it goes. Everything in the red circle is our kids’ outside toys and pool toys which we are keeping.
I plan on organizing all the keep stuff once we get the junk out. I can’t haul any of the junk to Goodwill until next weekend. I hope to do an update post with picture of what our garage looks like cleaned and organized. I have well over the 50 item requirement to toss out of our garage.
How many items did you toss from your garage and or basement?
I can’t say enough about this course. It is an easy and fast way to get started decluttering. Kathi breaks it down room by room and area by area each day. There are printables for each day and calendar to keep you on track. She also has short videos everyday. Check out Kickstart to Clutter Free by Kathi Lipp here.
