|Two of my students need to clean off their desks! And I think I should pot up two new plants as a reward!|
Our homeschool room had become a clutter magnet! I don't have any before pictures but I can describe what had happened. I emptied a dresser for the girls to use and put all of the school supplies that were in it on top of the cupboards. I went through some stored clothes and a stack of empty storage bins was stored in the schoolroom. The children moved their toys into the schoolroom and they made a mess of the cupboards. The closet had boxes of fabric, jars, art, craft supplies and clothes for the girls thrown into it any old way.
|We will get to the walls eventually!|
Here is what I did and it took all day. I moved the toys out of the cupboards and put fabric, toys for the little boys and school supplies in there instead. I got rid of two boxes full of fabric, four boxes of clothes, and a bunch of other little things. I also filled four bags with trash! That was a lot of stuff to have taking up room. The children moved their toys into the closet after I cleaned it out and straightened it up. Now I will be able to lock the door if they don't take care of their toys responsibly.
I even cleaned off my desk!
|Yes, this is clean.|
I moved the dress up clothes, purses, and shoes from my bedroom closet to the schoolroom closet door.
This is the closet after. Each child has a storage bin full of toys. I try to keep their toys down to a manageable level. If they have too many things they just make a mess and don't play with all of them anyway.
So that is that. Now I feel a good de-cluttering and cleaning coming on for the rest of the house.
