Day 9 of sort save splurge should be easy for most of you. I’m taking a wild guess that for 10% of you, not so much. It comes down to how much stuff you have in your living room or family room. I honestly didn’t have a single item to get rid of. Not one, but that’s because I keep my living room pretty bare bones (minus the wandering toys). Couch, ottoman, tv, lamp, side table and media cabinet with nothing but a computer tower in it. I don’t even have anything on my fireplace mantle because the little one is notorious for pulling stuff down on himself. Captain Chaos (his sister isn’t much better).
If you’re the made up 10% that is dealing with living room clutter, tackle it like you would any other space. Donate, toss and keep piles. Try to take a non emotional approach to items cluttering your living space. Is it useful? Do you absolutely love it or just like it a little bit? When was the last time you used it? Etc. Wipe down all surfaces and put things back.
While you’re in the living room, make sure everything is thoroughly wiped down, vacuum cushions and move the couch to clean up whatever dust bunnies you have lurking down there.
