Finally- day 21!! It seems like it’s taken me a month longer than everybody else to do a 3 week challenge!! (Maybe because it HAS?? Queen Anne finished hers on Sept. 25! )
FPPPTT!! (Exactly how do you spell that rude raspberry noise??) Never mind, this’ll do.
Alrightey, then! Let’s dive straight into the straightening!!
Timer set? Ready, steady, set, GO!!
Top drawer revealed: Dresser drawers!! Not Southern type “drawers”!!
2nd drawer. 3rd drawer.
Need to find the pic of the bottom drawer!!
In the top drawer I had tons of expired meds. NOT good!! I know, I know!!
Aha! Here it is! The bottom drawer pic, I mean. Okay, back to the expired meds. Lots and LOTS of expired med!
Lots, and LOTs of expired meds! 13 bottles, 1 baggy, and 2 boxes. The top box is not even my med! How do I have my Mama’s med??? So, I have it bagged up to take to the expired med. drop off place. Thanks, Queen Anne for the info on finding that expired med. drop off place. Also in the top drawer, was a memory T-shirt. It seems unreal that I used to fit into this shirt! No, we don’t need to mention how many years ago!! My college BFF, Joyous, gave it to me, after she graduated our college, and moved on to the next one. (3 guesses what it was! ) It is now in the memory box.
Also, a purple little bin, and a charging cord. Could this be the charging cord for the laptop I already gave away??? If it is, happily, the lady lives just down the street!
Oh my, that 2nd drawer!! What a literal treasure trove!! I wonder how many elementary treasure chests you could stock outta that drawer??
Well, maybe not the vinyl letters….. And the light switch plate is slated for the girls’ room.
Nice pair of purple gloves!! Nope, not a pair. Seriously?? Now we’re gonna start the whole thing over again, but with single gloves??? Well, at least I have 1 matched pair!! And since winter is only approx 49 hours long, I think I’ll be okay. So the 2 spares went in file 13. Yay! Another slam dunk! (But speaking of winter- where’s my hat?????)
Look what the 3rd drawer had in store, Jen! These single socks seem determined to follow in our very foot steps!! Buh, bye!
Bottom held this gem, along with fabric. The fabric was shifted over to the left side, along with all the other fabric. Now, what to do with this??? I no longer take breathing treatments. (And haven’t in the last 8 years. I do believe I’m good!) But do I keep it just in case I ever do?? If I can donate it, where?? Questions, questions, everywhere, and no answers in sight. I need a little Nony help right now! I guess I’ll call the pharmacy, and see what they say.
Dresser drawers denuded:
Top. How neat and organized!! I love it!! Thank you!! (IF you’re wondering what those vials are, they held the expired epi-pens. Nony suggested keeping them for little stuff. Like PP’s confetti, maybe?? Definitely!!)
2nd dresser drawer. Ummm, well…. it’s decluttered … Yup! Undies only!! And socks. Yes, undies- tops, and bottoms, and socks. But certainly not Kon-maried!! And that’s ok. It’s decluttered, only undies are there, and I’m all good with that!!
3rd drawer. The all jammies, all the time drawer! I’m excited that now I know where to put stuff, and I can find it now!!
Bottom: The piece de resistance!
Just look at all that lovely empty space!! Woot Woot! I’m so proud of you!! Thank you!! I’m quite proud of myself! Now, the trick is to keep it like that!! You know they will want to see an update in a month or so! I’ll keep that in mind!
Thus endeth the Royal Challenge of the Declared Declutterathon. Queen Anne hath declared her pleasure with all her Ladies-In-Waiting!!
Queen Anne, that is!
Thank you, my Queen!
