February Habit #7 I Finally Understood

IMG_5644Dear Friends,

Welcome to a new month and a new habit! February is Declutter for 15 minutes, and we are going to take full advantage of our time. Monday through Friday this month you will get a new Declutter Mission that follows the Zone we are in. If you have a declutter story or an idea that you have found to be useful please send us an email with MY DECLUTTER STORY in the subject line!

February Declutter Mission: #2 – Zone 2

Today declutter the silverware drawer. Cull through all the items in this drawer, keep only what you use and get rid of the rest.

Dear FlyLady,

Recently my bathroom was converted into a wet room. ( A wet room is basically a shower room does away with the shower screen and tray, and has an open, fully tiled shower area.)

I decluttered as I emptied the two cupboards into three small laundry baskets.

I was constantly surprised at what I hoarded.

Why did I think we would use 12 year old face packs, 40 year old cosmetics and soap that everyone is allergic too?

The wet room looked so lovely and EMPTY.  I finally understood about the peace, FlyLady tells us about.  I decided whatever went back had to earn it’s place – No more piling stuff on the windowsill or floor !!

After  decluttering the already decluttered stuff  (does it breed in the night like wire coat hangers do?) I was down to one!!! – yes – one very small laundry basket of stuff.

One week later and the wet room is still clutter free and shining.

I feel so happy whenever I’m in there.  Thank you all, for patiently & gently reminding us to get off our Franny’s, even for those of us who are physically challenged.

God Bless,
Trish DS in the cold & wet UK
