more from today and product review

Congratulations to all the winners in the decluttering challenge I think the
big prize for me is to have my house clean which I love. Thanks again Marcia.

We did all our errands and I was so excited in our travels I finally found
caps for the top of our toothbrushes. I have wanted new ones for a bit
now. I grabbed 4 packs so we can use 2 packs and have two for when we
need them again. I dont mind having stuff I know I will be using for sure.
I think that is a good reason to declutter all the stuff you wont ever use
to make room for the stuff you really do want!!!!
I was thinking wow I am having fun doing this challenge and love the way
it feels with all the stuff gone out of the house why doesnt it stay that way??
I need to find some systems that will allow me to keep it that way I think that is
the big trick with me so I will be working on this . Any hints or tips for this?
So when I was all done shopping I cleaned out the fridge decluttered old stuff
and wiped it all down another ahhhhhhhh... feeling and love the way it looks
with my new baskets. I dont think I took a pic of the fridge I will post it tomorrow.

Okay so if you have been following along with me last week I bought the rip off
green bags that are advertised on tv. Well today I did the test I checked the
strawberries that I put them in and nothing no mold or anything which usually
happens. They smelled so good and fresh better than when we bought them.
So I went and bagged a cucumber, carrots and blackberries. Love them they
work awesome. No more throwing out fruit or veggies that makes me feel

Diane, I love what you said, because you got it exactly.

"I think that is a good reason to declutter all the stuff you wont ever use

I'm going to be posting more about a system and maintenance in the weeks to come, but for now, just make sure you do a quick 5-minute check and tidy of the already decluttered spaces every couple of days and when you take things away, put them in their new homes immediately :)
