As the "Us in Orlando" family is nearing actually being in Orlando, it's a perfect time for us to think about streamlining and simplifying. We're moving from a near 1300 sq ft 4th floor apartment to a near 1000 sq ft single-level, single-family home. So, space will be at a premium!
As mentioned before on this blog, I've been inspired by She Picks Up Pennies - her approach to decluttering has encouraged me to be thoughtful as to the homes for items - the right donation location, the right resale, etc.
As new members of Twitter (new Tweeters?) we jumped on the challenge that Dragons on Fire posted - decluttering 1,000 items in the next year! I'll be tracking our decluttering journey here.
Some rules I am setting for us
Now, we're committed to starting this now (April), but we got a bit of a head start in March. Here's what we were able to do last month
looking forward to doing more and sharing more!
Blog posts are all by Mrs. Us in Orlando unless otherwise noted. A former military kid, she's glad to have landed in the sunshine state and enjoys year-round summer sports, making every book a "beach read", waterside walks with the fam, and iced lattes.
