It is now 10 PM and I have finally stopped moving.

Instead of tackling my room, I took on the back bedroom with my mom between 2-8 PM. I was originally going to start cleaning off the top of my dresser, when I noticed I have a ton of earrings, necklaces and bracelets all over the place. That’s when I remembered all of my jewelry boxes in the back room.

I was almost positive that they were in this one box towards the front of the room… My certainty withered away, and I ended up going through five boxes until I finally found them. This took 6 hours to do, but we got a lot done.

The room started off looking like this:

Before - back room

Once I learned that the jewelry boxes were not where I thought they were, we dug into the room. After unpacking, throwing away and merging boxes and bins, I finally found what I was looking for! The room looked pretty decent, as well!

After - back room

It’s not a major improvement, there a lot left to sift through, but I feel like I accomplished something and I got to spend the day with my mom! We ended up with a full bag of recycling and trash, a few empty boxes, and two bags full of donations.

It was nice to clear out a lot of that stuff, and it wasn’t as overwhelming as I thought it would be. I have been putting off going through my stuff for years now, and I’m extremely happy that I finally sat down and did it!
