Today’s challenge was decluttering and organizing your book, magazines, CDs, and DVDs. If you collections of this stuff is as bad as mine, this task took you awhile!
I started with the book shelf that holds children’s books. (Ok, to be truthful, I did the small bookcase, the big one is in my oldest daughter’s room and I’ll do it when I do her room!)
I went through each shelf and pulled out books. I made piles of the ones to keep, the ones to sell, and the ones to throw away. After 5 kids, some of our books have seen a better life! I am planning on having a garage sale in a few weeks so this challenge gave me a nice collection of books to put on the sale. (I also priced them as I put them in the tote…double score!)
Next were the magazines. I went through these not too long ago and this task didn’t take long. I have a basket that I keep my magazines in and when it becomes too full, I weed some out!
I waited to do the DVDs until the kids were asleep because I knew I’d be tossing quite a few of our DVDs. A lot of them are scratched beyond repair (which is why I am totally in love with DVR).
I finally did a quick pass through my books because I needed to get out the door for Moms & Tweens. I will have to come back to them and finish because there were just too many to go through them all before I had to leave but I did the best I could with the time I had!
How did organizing and decluttering your books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs go for you?
