Bedside Tables

Another piece of the home has been successfully decluttered - Dave's and my bedside tables. Granted, I did not tackle a major project, but it is one more thing to check off.

I didn't take pictures because it wasn't very dramatic...

Each table has 2 drawers and a "counter" or whatever you want to call the top of it that tends to collect the crap that we're doing (okay, just me - Dave is pretty good about keeping his clear, so I like to clutter it up from time to time:)

Put away (in its proper place): several books that were both of our drawers - put away in the bookcases in the family room, a couch pillow that had magically appeared in our bedroom, an extension cord, some random photos, a pajama shirt and 2 bras, a bandana.

Thrown away: leftover sunday tribune crossword puzzles that I will never solve, a box of condoms (did I really say that? yes. I thought about putting them on freecycle, but I was too embarassed - so I post it on the WWW instead), some random garbage/papers that ended up in our drawers, a couple of fabric belts that will never be worn, a ring box, a couple of empty boxesl, two folders of life insurance continuing education materials that Dave hasn't touched in 2 years.

Given away: cufflinks and a money clip, a pair of slippers, a baby do-rag.

Our drawers are now almost empty. I kept a couple of books in mine, a box of misc. greeting cards, an envelope of memories from college, and my camera case. I kept a new wallet, some handkerchiefs, the cord to our queen sized electric blanket and our ski goggles in Dave's (I should find a better place for them, but until I do, I know exactly where they are).

I also dusted and cleaned all of my bedroom furniture.

Next up: Dave's armoir & my dresser.

And for the record, my bathroom counter from last week still looks like the after picture!!!

That's so cool! And you threw the box of condoms away because you're trying to get pregnant??? (I've thrown them away because they've expired...sad, but true!) When I declutter, I tend to get mostly done with the project and then it comes to a halt. I decluttered my office months ago... cleared on one two-drawer filing cabinet, but it is still here in my office and I've been meaning to take it down to the storage closet. Maybe I should just give it away... or throw it away, huh?
