Getting rid of fifty things

I've been trying to make my breakfast nook into a space for my Bright Blessings supplies, and finally decided it was time to get serious. Here's the before:



I lost count of how many things I threw away, but it had to be more than fifty. It's not complete just yet, but here are the results so far:



I've learned that I need to just give things a good throwing away as I go, rather than letting them pile up, and that my mother was right when she said it was easier to just keep it clean all along.

Great job so far! I used a million of those little white baskets in my reorganization too, lol!

This looks wonderful! I am so inspired to tackle my crafting area (that looks a lot like your before pictures). Great job!

Awesome job. You mom was wise in her advice. It's taken me most of my 39 years to figure out that stuff needs to be purged often rather than just when it gets overwhelming. It's mamazing how much easier it is to maintain our home when we only have what we need and love around us.

I had the same experience with loosing count while tossing. It is amazing how much you can get rid of once you get going!~
