5 Ways To Kickstart Your Decluttering Process

Decluttering can be pretty tough.  It's much easier to keep all the stuff we have instead of going through it and getting rid of what we don't need anymore.  This is when we need a little push.  

Here are some ways that have helped kickstart my decluttering process.

Labeling Cords - Easy Mixup Fix

Cord chargers can be annoying.  With all the devices we have around the house, it's hard to keep track of what cord charges what device or who they belong to.  It gets even harder when you visit family members and have chargers all over the place.  

I got tired of having this little problem and decided something had to be done.  So, I gathered all the cords in the house and my handy dandy label maker.

DIY Nightstand Makeover - Takes Less Than 30 Minutes!

I've had this little nightstand for about 10 years!  It's not the prettiest piece of furniture, but it's what I have and it works for me now.  

Painting it white and trading the silver for gold with glass knobs would be my dream, but in reality it would be hard to do that.  I've never taken this piece of furniture apart.  I bought it at a garage sale exactly how it is and it's been that way since.  I'm terrified of taking it apart in fear I wouldn't be able to put it back together again or it wouldn't be as sturdy, or maybe I'm just scared of my first real DIY furniture project.  Either way, I knew I wanted to make it over in some way, but didn't know how.  That's when I came up with the best idea ever, not to mention the easiest!

Packing Kid's Clothes - Keeping It All Together

Packing for little kids isn't as easy as it looks.  Yes they have smaller clothes, but you have to remember more things like outfits, extra clothes and underwear.  If you forget something it could mean your child might not have enough clothes for a whole trip (especially if you are nowhere near a washer or dryer).

For the past 4 years we have used the same system for packing my daughter's clothes.  It's so simple, keeps everything organized and I am sharing it with you today.
