I came across the 91 Day De-Clutter Event while browsing on facebook last week. My home could use a "little" de-cluttering and the time frame looks reasonable, so what they hey. I'm in.
As you can see Week #1 focuses on the living room, and yes, mine could use some work. Our biggest problem is a too small home and not enough storage space. This week I am going to find things we don't absolutely need and decide if they will be put aside for our upcoming yard sale or donated to my favorite thrift shop or headed for the trash.
The challenge couldn't be easier. There are two options; a quick de-clutter method or a more thorough detailed method. This week, I'm opting for the detailed approach. To go with this challenge, even though it makes me cringe, I am taking before and after pictures. (To put things in perspective, I have moved A LOT. In my whole adult life I don't think I've lived in any one place longer than three years. I've gotten used to boxes. I do not like it, but it's the truth.)
So, here are my unedited before pics of the areas I will be working on.

futon are for work. They have to stay.
and I will again. I miss it. bookcase would help a lot.
Wish me luck...I'm going in.
