Tackle It Tuesday


I did a big tackle this week! Actually, I did this last night. I've been tackling all along, but haven't done anything really big, so I haven't been participating in Tackle it Tuesday. But last night I took on a pretty big job....

RUTHI'S ROOM!!

I know I've tackled it many times before...but this time I didn't just clean...I cleaned out! Every nook and cranny. I went through everything and threw away broken things and got rid of things she didn't use/play with anymore.

She was a trooper, right beside me the whole way. She was happy to let go of things she no longer had an interest in.

Here are some before pics:


Closet


Doll Area


Other play area


Disaster Area - I can't believe I'm even posting this one. She likes to bring her toys to the living room to play. They had started accumulating, so I told her to put them away. This is how she did it - right smack in the middle of the floor!

And after pics:

And I didn't think to take another picture of the middle of the floor, but it is empty now!

This is the stuff that will go to a new home:


And then there was some trash too!


I also cleaned out her dresser drawers, which was long overdue!
I put away her winter clothes, and pulled out quite a few clothes that were too small that will be passed on.

It feels very good to know her room is so clean now! Yay! I was even able to clear out a couple of bins in her closet to move her puzzles to. They were under her bed before, and not as easy for her to get to, or to put back. So things are much better now!

  9. My husband never understands why it drives me crazy to have the kids' rooms perpetually messy and disorganized, but I truly think you can play "happier" when everything has a home! It looks great!
