Robbie's Room After

I don't know what was worse: picking up legos, knex pieces or light brite pegs. Here is the after photo.

That is Ryker on the bed.

 I did remove this table and replace it with some wire cube shelving from my Ebay room. When I post about that room, I will point it out.

I donated a lot of hand held games and threw away the ones that didn't work. I need to go through that box of computers and make sure none are broken or taken apart but that is a task for another day.

Robbies Room Before

I haven't been very good at keeping up this blog but I have been slowly decluttering. This is Robbies room before I tackled it.

The legos all over the floor are Ryker's doing.

I love the wall papering in his closet. Too bad there isn't more wall paper like this in the house.

Tomorrow, I'll try to show the after photos.

Ryker's Room After

These are the after photos of Ryker's cleanup. It obviously did not stay this clean and it is a daily struggle to get him to put things away. I still have not had a chance to get rid of some things but I did throw away some trash and broken toys.

This is his desk. I need to go through the drawers and clean it out.

I moved the shelves from the left wall and put them on the center wall. No more struggling to get into the closet

I moved the play kitchen to the left wall and put the tool station on the inside porch. I'm trying to convince him to let me sell the tool set.

I also found some crib sheets which I have donated.

Ryker's Room Before

I actually cleaned Ryker's room a week or so ago but didn't get around to posting photos. I haven't gotten rid of anything that wasn't trash because Ryker has the memory of an elephant and remembers all the toys he has. I'm going to post only the before photos today and save the after for another post.

This desk seems to be drop off central. Everything, and I mean everything, gets dumped here. In fact, I may have to clean it again.

This is the view from the living room door. He never sleeps in his bed. He prefers to sleep on the couch in the living room. He is convinced there is a ghost in his room and I tend to believe this as I have experienced it myself.

View by his desk

These shelves are pretty much organized but they take up a lot of room. Plus they are blocking the door to the closet and it is hard for me to get Ryker's clothing out.

Kitchen Clean Up

I went through my kitchen drawers and cabinets a few days ago. I can't believe all the crap I had 2 of.


Salt and pepper shakers and a timer. Since both my microwave and oven have a timer, I had no use for this one. I also have a set of salt and pepper shakers. This set I got free at a church rummage sale and didn't have the heart to tell them I did not want it.

Sewing kit and lipstick holder I already have a sewing box and I don't wear lipstick

Extra silverware, utensils  Seriously how many big spoons do I need to have?

Plastic containers. I probably should have thrown some of these out

Looking back at this photo, I should have thrown out that pan

Soap holder


Children's plates and trays

Bread pans and a cake pan. I have never made bread in my entire life and don't plan on making one anytime soon. And if I do decide to bake a cake, it sure will be bigger than this pan.

Slushie maker We haven't made any slushies in over 3 years


This cocoa machine was recalled. You had to send in the pitcher to get a $30 check. I don't know why I held onto the base since it is no use to me or anyone else for that matter. Into the trash it went.

I created a group on Facebook to sell some of these items. Even if you are not local, you can still join and buy. You will need to message me for a shipping quote. You can join here

Fridge Clean Out and A New Group

I seem to be juggling too many things at once. Besides my normal housework, this decluttering idea and working on Ebay, I started a group on Facebook where people can buy my things. Anyone can join even if you are not local. You can buy and I will send you a message with the shipping costs. If you want to join, click here.

Anyways, today I started cleaning out my fridge. I threw out 3 bags: half a ham and stuffing from New Year's Day, some condiments that expired last year, and a can of coffee that expired in August 2013. I'm hoping to deep clean it tomorrow.
