One Room Challenge Week 2: The Clean out!

Here we go – Week two! I hope you’re ready! For me, this was the hardest part. We have used this room for storage for the past 4 years… It was so full you couldn’t even access the room. It was filled to the brim with stuff! Cleaning it all out was the BIGGEST chore – Ever! Ok, I may be exaggerating but it was a challenge to find new places to put everything.

Some of the stuff in there has been there since we moved into this house! That was almost 5 years ago! Can you tell I’ve been avoiding this area of our home?  I knew we had some serious organizing to do and so in order to get myself going, I had to 5-4-3-2-1 it! If you’re a Mel Robbins fan, you’ll know what I’m talking about – If you’re not and you’re like why did this woman just count down? Do yourself a favor and read the book The 5 Second Rule! It changed my life and I have a feeling it can help you too.

Ok – off-topic. Sorry! We started by getting all of the “keep” items out and making a trash and donate pile with the rest. Then, little by little we worked on organizing and putting things away. Once everything was pulled out of the office, I admit I was a little more motivated. The office is right off of the landing so that’s where everything got put. It was totally in the way and hard to maneuver around. I made a goal to work on it every day for an hour until it was done.

If you want to feel really satisfied… watch this time-lapse video of the actual cleanout. What is it about time-lapse videos that are just so satisfying to watch?!

Be sure to check back here Thursday for the next One Room Challenge post. It’ll be on Installing sound-proof walls! A total must for any office space!
