War On Clutter - Day One

War on Clutter began today.

I'm working from one end of the house to the other, so I started in the main bedroom.

And here is the pile I dragged out of two chests of drawers and a large built-in...
Sewing projects, cushions, blankets, bags, dvds circa 1991 and many many old and unfashionable clothes.

The interesting part is that a lot of this stuff has places that it should be.  Miss 4's cupboard doubles as a place for all my sewing odds and ends, and we keep all our bags in Miss 5's cupboard.  I'm at a bit of a loss over what to do with the DVDs.  There's some great movies in there, but we just don't watch them, or listen to our CD collection for that matter, which is also rapidly aging.

Hubs has a laundry basket of dross that he has to sort through when he gets home, and I'm heading to Vinnies to drop off the first of many loads this afternoon.

There was a lot of dust and I sneezed a lot, but an excellent start.

:)

Great work, I'm sure that Vinnies will love the dvds as well. You have made me think that I need to do a bit of a wardrobe cull, change of season and all that.

Good luck with that. I finally have my place just about how I want it, all the clutter sorted and stowed. Phew, only took six years :)
