I have actually stretched beyond the kitchen this week, and have been trying to dedicate a small amount of time everyday to skimming over other areas of the house and choosing several items to de-clutter or clean up.
So far this week, I have listed at least a dozen books on half.com and actually sold three already! These were books that have just been taking up space on the shelf. I also found several books that were borrowed and returned them to their happy, rightful owners. We even gifted a few books as well.
My whole family comments on the progress I am making with taking back the home. They are all enjoying the new look, and that makes it all worth it to me! One of the children even took it upon herself to start de-cluttering her own things, and has made some giant steps at thinning out her 'stuff' through donating and gifting to bless others.
