Making Your Home Sing Monday: It's Time To Declutter!

Making your home sing Mondays

Welcome to the Making Your Home Sing Monday linky party! Every day you are doing something to make your house into a home for yourself and your family (if you have one). 

My point with each Monday post is, what are YOU doing or going to do today to make your home sing?  It can be an attitude or an action. So have fun, do some blog hopping, and link up!  Thanks!

Topics can include marriage, parenting, encouraging women, organization, cleaning, saving money, our behavior and attitudes, homemaking, homeschooling,recipes....the opportunities are endless.

Note: We had 55 linkups last week!  You guys are awesome!  Don't forget to visit one another and try to leave a comment on at least one blog to encourage someone today!  :)  

On the left sidebar (down towards the bottom) is the "Making Your Home Sing! Monday" button which you are welcome to grab and paste into your post if you want but it's not a requirement.  It is a "no-follow" button.

This last week I decluttered some of my Christmas decorations.  I went from seven boxes down to four boxes, so I only decluttered by three boxes.  But still, it means I have three boxes less to store!

Then, because I was still "in the mood" I went ahead and decluttered some of the stuff in my decor box.  I am sort of over my "roosters" phase so I got rid of a couple of roosters and some other decor items.

Sometimes you've got to take advantage of the decluttering urge when it strikes because if you wait around too long, you may not be in the mood as much.

I also find that I can let go of things easier if I declutter a few times a year.  I may not want to let go of something but a few months later I may find that I am not as attached to it anymore.

I am not the only one who is simplifying.  My facebook exploded with posts this week from friends who are cleaning out their pantry, or their spare bedroom, or their home office, etc.  It seemed like everyone was longing to free themselves from some of their "stuff" that hangs on and threatens to choke us sometimes.

The end of the year seems like a good year to do that, doesn't it?  What is threatening to choke YOU today?  What things are YOU hanging onto that seem to own you rather than you owning them.

Let go, pass something along, or toss something away but spend a little time decluttering so that you can breathe a little easier this week and make your home sing!
