The Stuff Keeps Multiplying

We moved into our home on April 2 and we’re slowly but surely settling in and really making this house into a home!

As usual our office/guest room space became the catch all! Everything that didn’t have a home was shoved into this room. It wasn’t so bad the first day or so, in fact I was quite excited and felt like we didn’t have a lot of excess clutter!

Then as we started unpacking more, we kept shoving more stuff into the back room.

It really seemed as if it were multiplying daily!!

This is a shot of the worst that it was. {And honestly, it still hasn’t been completely dealt with, thanks to simply shoving in a closet!}

Just keeping it real and sharing our clutter! {I suppose we have a lot of decluttering to do on the way towards rational minimalism!!}

  1. Yard sale time!! Don't get discouraged though, it isn't a dungeon yet and I am sure you will get it sorted out before it even gets there 🙂

    1. I've been thinking about a yard sale since we moved! I just need to plan it! (We already have a huge pile of stuff in the garage for the yard sale!)

  2. I had to laugh when I saw this. I thought, "Welcome to my world." The only difference is that ours is around the entire house. Not just one room! 🙂 We definitely need to purge alot of our "stuff"!

    1. I am thankful we just have one cluttered/unorganized room but it still drives me crazy!! 🙂 Good luck with your purging!

  3. We are having a garage sale tomorrow and I can't wait. It crazy the stuff we have that isn't used. Mostly outgrown kids clothes and ALOT of toys they don't play with any more. All the "stuff" makes me crazy and when it is strewn all over the house, I turn into an unpleasant mom!!! Less is more as they say.

    Rachel you might be interested in reading a book that I just finished:
    "Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids
    by Kim JOhn Payne, M.Ed. with Lisa Ross.

    It was a very enlighteing book. You are probably doing most of his suggestions already, but there is some interesting research done that he talks about.

    The clutter,….it does build up fast doesn't it?

    1. Sounds like we are a lot alike! My mood also is effected when there is stuff all over the house!! Thanks for the book recommendation! And yes, the clutter builds up way too fast. I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like if I shopped for fun and didn't declutter bi-monthly!!
