Day 25

I can't believe it has already been 25 days since #100dayproject began and I started my "draw and dump" project (see my original post by clicking here)!

Already, so many items have gone out the door of my apartment, most of them to be donated or gifted to others and only a few actually thrown out.

Here are five of my sketches from the past 25 days:

I admit, it has sometimes been a challenge to do this project  Actually, I enjoy the sketching part.  The hard part is the actual decluttering - forcing myself to do the work.  Some days, I'm just not motivated and it seems like a whole lot of effort to clean and sort when I'd rather just be a couch potato. But I've learned that it usually just takes a few minutes of time to find the five objects and even a 10 minute or half an hour session adds up when you are doing it several days in a row. In the end, it's definitely worth the time and effort to have a tidy bookcase or an organized set of drawers and kitchen cupboards and whole lot less stuff.
Bookcase - before

Bookcase - after!
