Who needs it?...

One of my first areas of the Who needs it challenge was to clean out our dining room cupboard. We live in a small house and don't have a study, basement, attic or any real place to store anything. So this cupboard is the one place where we can store things inside the house.



I can't believe how many boxes for old phones and even our W.ii was saved in this cupboard. What was left over was all our board games, appliances that don't fit in our kitchen, car DVD, BBQ tray, first-aid kits, electrical cords and a box I've filled with the boys birthday cards and drawings. 

Even though I kept most of the things in the cupboard (I still filled a rubbish bag full of crap), I feel so much better for cleaning it out and finishing the task. I had been putting it off for so long because I didn't know what I wanted to do with the things stored in there. I even managed to clean out one of my kitchen cupboards that I had been meaning to so I could keep my recipe books somewhere! Sorry I didn't take a before photo, just imagine a cupboard filled with stubby coolers.

  1. Awesome job!! I am sure that feels good! :)

  2. Wow! The cupboard looks so much bigger! Interesting what you said about keeping most of the things - I did something similar, and for a while felt like I kind of failed bc I kept most things too. Then I realized that just going through it with intention, and a more orderly feel really was what I needed to feel better about the space. :)
