So, if you’ve read my post on the latest “inspire me mondaze” you might have an idea that I’m trying to declutter my home one room at a time.. Some days a little from here and there, depending on how scatterbrained I am that day. Well just this past week, we actually sold 3 things that actually all hurt me just a teensie bit.. Okay, maybe a lot. But, I know, part of having a decluttered life, is letting things go that might in the long run help the home and the space function better. I mean, that’s the goal, right? A better life.. Then why am I still sad. Jk, in a way, it’s freeing to know that ‘things’ don’t control me and really the most important things in life are the people; my kids are well, my husband is happy and I’m still sane.. Haha. (Yes I laugh at myself. Live a little!)
The first thing that hurt a little to sell was our swing set, that my kids thoroughly enjoyed playing with. But, daddy is on a quest (more like an ever so slow quest) to get this back yard together so if we can look pass the jungle of a yard, we can see where my kids like to play. So daddy gave them a choice to keep this or the trampoline. The trampoline won this time. But, its been a few days now and I can see the light once we get things moving back there and it looks less like a jungle.
So this was my baby girls dresser when she had her own nursery. I’ll have to share that with you some time. She now shares a room with her twin bro (though 19 months apart) so that our soon to be teen son can have his own room for a while. There was no convincing Mr. J that I could transform this to look less feminine. So away it went.
This was my oldest boys loft bed. Don’t mind my 4 year just doing a little reading when he was actually supposed to be taking a nap. Anyway, it was once really tall, but we cut it down. He’s had this for a while and about a month ago he asked if he could have a normal bed that was bigger. Ugh.. my heart hurts.. Teen years are too close for comfort and I’m not ready. This was just given away to a family and he now has a full size bed that I will be sharing with you soon.
Last, but certainly not least, is our industrial stools. I actually didn’t purchase these that long ago. I actually bought these to pair really nicely with the industrial styled pendant lighting over our island. Alas, I wasn’t really satisfied with the lights that was also fairly new, so I was still able to return those and ended up selling these on craigslist and came out even so that was nice. Wasn’t sure I would be able to, but it’s interesting how sold out chairs could really come to your benefit.
These are just a few items we’ve sold in this decluttering process. There is much more to go and I’m surprisingly enjoying the process. Is anyone else doing a little decluttering also? If so, let me know how you’ve been doing with it! Happy decluttering!
