So to start this journey I needed a plan. The first was starting the book Clutter Free with Kids by the author of the becoming minimalist blog. It seemed like a no brainer to start there. Better yet I got it for my kindle so it’s not another book taking up space in my already to full house. I'm the kind of person who likes to read about things before instituting a change. So with that started I got inspired to clean out the kids rooms. The first part was a general find the floor and take things out of the room that don't belong there. This was no easy task and there is still a ton of stuff in there, but it’s one step closer and we’re baby stepping it. Rome wasn’t conquered in a day.
Perhaps next week we'll have gotten rid of some more stuff and made the space even more functional, but here's where we ended today. I forgot a before picture, but rest assured it was much, much worse!
