And this is what it looks like now. There are so many reasons why I love it:
First of all, I have a cozy space right next to the window. I kept all the books I love, but no longer have piles of books I couldn't care less for.
With the extra space on the floor, I can now keep our mini-fridge (a must for the top floor on a two story house!) and our document boxes in accessible, yet out-of-the-way places. Pus, did I mention I have now room for my shoes?
My table is organized and to make sure I am not going back to cluttering, I gave half of its space to my husband (therefore the desktop computer). I also love that I have a 'project box' right next to the table, where I can centralize everything that needs my attention. I made a deal with myself that by July, whatever is still in that box gets binned.
Here is all the clutter that no longer has room in my life. Plus, I'm sure my kids at school and cleaning lady will be very happy with the donations!
