3000 thing challenge: master bedroom

We are almost through with the 3000 challenge!  How is everyone doing so far?  I hope this series has encouraged you to declutter your home, which in turn can help create a positive and welcoming space.

3000thingchallenge master bedroomThis week I encourage you to focus on your master bedroom.  David and I have made a conscious effort not to allow extra stuff in our room. For example, we don’t eat in there, watch TV, do assignments, etc.  Even though we don’t have clutter, there are still some things that don’t belong such as books I’ve finished reading or clothes that need mending.  This week I’m going to aim to clear out anything that has a place elsewhere in the house, because decluttering doesn’t just mean throwing stuff out.  It also means finding a home for everything.

If your master bedroom is so cluttered you are unsure where to begin, here are some ideas:  begin by putting things back in their home (books, DVDs, dishes). Then collect anything that can be thrown out such as old receipts you empty from your pockets.  Go through your clothes and determine what you no longer wear and then donate them (here’s how I purge my closet).  Clean out your closet and get rid of anything that doesn’t belong (either put it away, toss it, or donate).   Your bedroom should be a peaceful place!

I’d love to know how you are doing with this challenge so far!

  1. We just finished a week of de-cluttering and it feels wonderful! Three carloads (we do have a tiny car) went down to The Bibles For Missions Thrift Store. It is incredible how STUFF quickly can accumulate. I agree with you about keeping the master bedroom clutter free. We don’t have a TV or eat in there either. I do admit to having a few too many books on the nightstand!
    Take care and have a good week.
