The declutter challenge a few days ago was to declutter plastic cups and water bottles.
We have water bottles coming out the wazoo!
You get them at the fair.
You get them at the game.
You get them everywhere.
All labeled with a name.
This is the worst area for them. They are just randomly thrown on this shelf with lightbulbs. In fact that diaper box is full of plastic cups and sippy cups and water bottles.
They are also on another shelf with some Tupperware.
I sorted both areas and removed a large box (bigger than that diaper box) to be sold/given away. I removed a small box (1/2 that size) of sippy cups and plastic Wanake mugs that I’ve labelled and will store in the garage for when there are small children in my house again.
I also sorted and semi-organized the lightbulbs. Put loose ones and single packed ones in the tote and basket.
There is room on that third shelf for some other things besides the outdoor chair pads. When I sort the trays/party cups/plates, I will probably move a box to that shelf.
All water bottles and plastic hot cups have been moved to the under-the-stairs pantry area for easy access.
I know that still seems like a lot, but we are a family of 6 and this is a 1/3 of what we did have, so that is pretty good.
Next up the calendar says Frig. We did clean that not too long ago, but I’ll have a go again. It also says top of the frig…. ummm… that would be Wayne’s territory. 🙂
