This happens to be my second year participating in the Spring De-Junk Challenge. When I heard that a second challenge was going to take place this year, I walked around and started to assess the areas of my home that I had tackled and organized during last year's challenge. What I found left me feeling pretty much disheartened. And why? Because almost every single area of my home that I had so meticulously organized and cleaned a year ago is all in the same sorry state (or even worse!) than before I had started the challenge in 2014.  I had to step back and ask myself why this had happened. Why had we not been able to keep those rooms and cabinets and shelves organized and de-cluttered? I found the answer to that question when I started reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo...

The answer? We have too much stuff!  But why? Folks, I have to tell you all that is pretty much mental. While we are not hoarders by any extreme, we do happen to be pack rats. Why had it all got so out of control in just a year's time? Because we kept getting new things, but never took the time to weed out the old things. This book teaches you how to change your thinking and finally take control of the clutter! 
My husband and I got a jump start on the challenge yesterday, and we started with the category that Marie recommends you begin with first- your clothing. (Note that I said category and not a room or area- read more about that in the book. ;) ) From our two closets and 8 sets of drawers, we cleared out 9 garbage bags of clothing to drop off at our local Goodwill. Nine! And we are just getting started. 

Because I love this book so much, I want to give a copy of it to one of you. :) Just use the Rafflecoper widget below to get entered. And be sure to check out the cleaning & organizing posts below from my fellow hosts of this year's challenge for even more spring cleaning motivation and inspiration.
