Packing party – Bedroom!

As you probably know I’ve started on a small pseudo packing party challenge. I started out last weekend with my bathroom, as I thought that would be an easy place to start, since there is a limit to how much I can actually fit in my tiny bathroom πŸ˜‰

This weekend my bedroom was up. My rules stipulate that I pack up on Fridays, and unpack on Mondays. Just like with the bathroom, I started up a day or two early, to give me a few more days with an “empty” bedroom.

I boxed up everything in the bedroom with the exception of my medical drawer and my clothes.

Why didn’t I pack up my wardrobe? Well, I’ve been chipping away at my clothing for the last couple of years, and the result is that I have gotten rid of at least half of what’s in my closet. And since I’m pretty happy with where my closet is right now, I didn’t feel the need to remove it all, and then just hang it right back up. So there.. I kinda figured since it’s my party, I get to do what I want to πŸ˜‰

Turn’s out, that not packing my clothing and shoes, there wasn’t much left. I emptied all the drawers and it still only amounted to one box, as I actually managed to clear out a few more items from what have survived earlier culling. I couldn’t believe there was anything left to get rid off.. but obviously there was.. guess that was the reason for this packing party after all.. to really get down to the nitty grittys πŸ˜‰

Below are a few picturesΒ of my bedroom “decluttered”! Having it empty have made me realise I need to get some art up on the walls, as the room is quite bare. I have in general been extremely slow at decorating my walls. Maybe that can be a small project, for when I’m done with my packing party.

Now for my partners “in crime”!

  • Moving Forward is doing her cupboards. So far she’s done her bathroom.
  • All-Round Better me – is back from travel and seems to be deep into some decluttering tasks again!
  • Every Week Is Green – just mentioned she might join us.. Β it will be fun to see if she does…

Next room – Hmm.. let’s see…. I think… living room! Anyone?

You are wondering about the stuff going out-the-door? Well… for the time being I’m piling it all in a heap in my guest room. I will write it all up in a post, when I’m through with my packing party… it’s going to be fun to see how much it actually amounts to by the time I’m done πŸ˜‰

      Maybe you are right.. but probably not πŸ™‚ There is still plenty of things left I’m sure I can shed, I already have a small pile in my guest room to prove that πŸ˜‰ The point of this exercise was after all to see if I could squeeze a few things more out-the-door… and even if it’s isn’t necessarily all that much from each single room.. it still should rack up a tiny number of items by the end of this (I hope..) πŸ˜‰

    Wow! Impressive how decluttered your bedroom is already! I have a ways to go before I can be at that stage.

    I did try and catch up on some of my previous decluttering goals, and once those are done, I plan to start working on the areas that you have been covering. Bathroom cabinets will hopefully be this weekend…

    I had “other things” this weekend, but I’ll try do my bedroom during the week and then do my living room during Easter. That’s an easy room for me cause I have almost nothing there πŸ™‚
    Well done on your bedroom!
