All I did was put away couple coats, put away the odd things and added the shoe rack from Ikea. Its a small change but has made a huge difference so far. It's amazing with alittle bit of organizing does! To check out what others have done to improve their entryways, go check out here. How do you organzie your shoes in your entryway? What works for you?
(Don't you love the wallpaper in the room. NOT!)
I am loving in this room because it feels more like an office space. There is a bulletin board and room for the filing cabinet. Hoping it stays cluttered free for a while. Unfortunately all the papers that were on it went into a bin to be sorted and filed at a later date.
How does your computer desk like? Could it use some tidying up?
Acouple days ago I posted saying that I started to clean the toyroom. Friday I got the urge to really deep clean it and organize it.

Boy am I tired now. I am glad I have a store bought lasagna in the oven. Now I can sit back and relax :)
What did you accomplish today? Did the challenge motivate you to get more accomplished today than you would of?
Thanks for joining me in the challenge!!
Today I am feeling really lazy and have tons of housework that needs to be done. So I need some motivation. I am going to challenge myself to try to get as much as I can done, in fast mode. It'll be great exercise and hopefully get lots accomplished. I'm going to turn up the music too, for fun.
I changelle you too! Go try to get as much done and report back here with a list of what you've done! It can be anything as small as doing the dishes to tackling a cluttered area. Are you ready? Set, go!! Off to the races! :)
What it looked like before I started cleaning yesterday. Yes, they have way too many toys. I'd love to get rid of half of them but unfortunally DH says we have to keep all of them. So little did he know, I was able to throw how 3 small broken toys. He'll never know they're gone.
I didnt get the chance to finish it before I had to make supper. I'll hopefully finish it today.
I dare you to declutter 1 broken thing today!
Nothing to get rid of except a pile of paper. Everything else went back to its homes. Looks a lot better. Hope it stays that clean for a while.
Everything is doubled because my boys share 1 tin for lunch.

I read most of the book 'Momstown: guide to getting it all' The first few chapters I found really good and learned some things from it.
In the book it says to make an anti-clutter list. Write a list of areas of your house that are cluttered. Be very specific when making your list. For example: Don't just list the living room. List the book shelve, entertainment centre, etc. Then when you have a spare moment or in a cleaning mood try to tackle one of the cluttered ares on the list.
Here is my long list:
(The ones in red I have completed)
top of filing cabinet
top of microwave
top of dresser
toy room closet
kitchen junk drawer
boys underwear drawer
craft room counter top
I am slowly tackling each cluttered area.
What would be on your anti-clutter list?
Tonight I acrossed another thing off my Anti-clutter list. I finally declutted and organized my master bathroom. This is the bathroom that we get ready for the day in. A lot piles up on the countertop and gets cluttered easily.
Here are the before pictures
One of the drawers
Oh how nice it looks. I'd love if it stayed that clean. In order to help keep it clean I bought baskets to keep the items we use everyday in. One basket for DH, one for me and one for the boys to share. I got the idea from Passionate Homemaking.
Ignore our lovely wallpaper in there. We havent painted/rewallpaper anything yet since we moved in 2 years ago. I dont think its been redorated since the '70s.
The drawers afterwards. I organized a drawer for DH and one for me.
The boxes in mine store my hair ties, bobby pins and my jewerly. Dh now has a basket to hold all his blades for his hair clipper.
Thanks for visiting. What have you decluttered recently?
