Mid-Summer De-Clutter Project Update

Okay, y'all. It's not quite mid-summer BUT I've been going strong on  my summer de-clutter challenge and thought I'd give y'all a little update.

I haven't been great about taking "before" photos but I do have some afters so here we go!  I tackled the office which ended up in a total rearrangment, crate boxing up and a TON of organization.  YESSSSS.

Here's what it looked like after pretty much an entire day of cleaning...

... craft closet before...

... and after!  Can you hear the angels singing?!?!?!

And here's all the clutter office headed to either the trash or Samaritan Inn.  

My dresser/closet purge ended up being way bigger than I anticipated BUT so happy to pass along a bunch of clothes and shoes.

Mason helped me tackle the kitchen...

... OH MY WORD...

... and after emptying and wiping every cabinet (and the pantry) we had a pretty hefty donate pile...

... a bunch of trash...

... and some VERY organized drawers, shelves and cabinets.

Before (kind of... I'd already cleared out one drawer)...

... and after.  I bought  a four-pack of these expandable drawer dividers and I love them so much!!!

I don't have a before but this is my favorite after because OH MY WORD  that little ziplock bag organizer makes me way happier than it should.


... and after (there's another one of those drawer dividers!)

I have a pretty  big collection of sesaonal/fun dishtowels that I like to hang over the handle on the oven and they were a DISASTER before taking up pretty much a whole drawer.  Got them purged, folded and 
stored nicely with a bunch of spare space.  

I got after the desk drawers as well...

... and even cleaned out the buffet in the dining room.

It houses napkins, a few serving pieces, linens, extra candles, etc.

We also took care of the laundry room drawers/cabinets...

... and after.  Yes... that's a lot of sunglasses - hahahaha  We've apparently accumulated quite the collection over the years.  I split the drawer into two with the other side being gum and things that we may need to toss in a bag on our way out the door.


... and after...

And there you go!  I'm taking a break this week but then plan on hitting the kids rooms hard between now and July 4th. My plan is to have the whole thing wrapped up by the time we head to Colorado mid-July.  WISH ME LUCK!!!

Hoping you found a little solidarity in this post and maybe some motivation to clean out your junk drawer(s) ;) hahaha

HAPPY Wednesday, friends!!!
