declutter with me – sentimental items

Welcome back to my declutter series and today we are talking about one of the hardest things to declutter, sentimental items. We all collect items throughout our lives that are important to us but sometimes we do need to edit them down. Note: I am not telling you to get rid of every sentimental item…

declutter with me: pantry and fridge

Last month we took a look at the kitchen and decluttered many small appliances and utensils and cleared out a lot of room in drawers and cabinets. This month we are sticking with the kitchen but moving on to more consumable items that are stored in the pantry as well as the fridge and freezer….

declutter with me: the collection spot
