One Box of Clutter

While organizing the nursery closet before Weston’s birth, I emptied out a small diaper box and decided to challenge myself to fill it up with clutter throughout the day!

While putting away clean dishes, I took a few extra minutes and went through the cabinets and drawers finding cookie cutters, baby spoons {we don’t need 10}, skewers and a creamer that’s never been used.

There were a few toys that Paxton never plays with that were added in and a shirt he doesn’t wear from the boys’ room.

I quickly went through my closet and dresser and I found a sweater, 2 shirts and a skirt that I don’t love and haven’t worn often.

And there were other odds and ends found throughout the house like a water bottle, a lanyard and some yarn.

I really didn’t put much time or effort into ‘de-cluttering’ but another box of stuff is leaving our home!

Living clutter free involves small steps. Start with one box, it won’t take much effort to fill up but you’ll feel great once you see that stuff leave your home!

  1. I agree! I just donated a grocery bag worth today. Now my husband has started to initiate an occasional quick decluttering! It is so wonderful!
    Hoping you are enjoying lots of snuggles with your boys.

  2. What a great idea! I know if I carried around a small box I could probably fill it up rather quickly with stuff we don't need or use anymore- I feel a decluttering spree coming my way!

    1. I often will challenge myself at the beginning of the day to fill up a small box or the laundry basket with stuff to get rid of! It's a fun little challenge! 🙂

  3. I currently have a box and two bags next to the door to donate! It is a great feeling…and it it will be even greater when I get the chance to take it and I don't have to look at it anymore! I've also been working on small organizational projects to help make our small space not feel so cramped. So far it is working! Each day that I do something around here I feel better the next day!

    I hope you are enjoying having a newborn around! I looked at my almost three month old and it feels like just yesterday he was born. Then I look at big sister and realize she's almost 3! Where does the time go?!

    1. I have a large bag in my car ready to donate…and it will be great to drop it off and know it's gone forever!! And yes, time goes by way too fast! Weston will already be 1 month in just a few days!

  4. I pretty much always have a box "in progress" it seems. Seems as though even though I might have just gotten rid of a box, there's always something else to get the next one started!
