i am started.

Decluttering: Day 1.
• Wash clothes
• Put winter clothes in attic.
• Pick out 15 summer outfits
• Take others to goodwill

I got 3 big, black, garbage bags of my kids' clothes for goodwill, and another 3 bags for a friend. Still so much more laundry. I have winter clothes put in tubs, but they aren't in the attic. The kids picked out 15 outfits and we made a trip to goodwill. I feel pretty successful. Tomorrow I'm tackling the dining/storage room.

I feel pretty successful.

I am also starting a new diet. I know all of my friends laugh at me. I am the queen of dieting. I know just eating right and exercising work, but I sometimes need a kickstart and just someone to tell me what to say. So tomorrow I'm starting the Carb Lovers Diet. I downloaded the free app and went to the grocery store today. It seems pretty simple. I'll post how it actually goes tomorrow.

i am going to try.

I am not a creature of habit. I rarely do the same thing every day. I do not get addicted to ANYTHING.

I feel like this last year has been a mess. Stress at home, stress at work, stress at every part of my life has made for everything to go by the wayside.

I am going to try to get my life in order this summer. The first step in Operation Beth-Is-Not-Crazy is decluttering my house. So I made myself a decluttering calendar. I have a due date - Beach Bunco at my house. I always do better with a due date. ;)

I am taking today and tomorrow (Memorial Day) off to spend with my family. I have a few things on my to do list, but the heavy stuff starts Tuesday.

I am going to try to update my decluttering success through this blog. So look for it. And please give me any tips you have!!!
