Clutter Buster - Dresser Top

I can't stand clutter. Clean surfaces make my heart sing! Unfortunately life gets in the way of my quest for junk-free areas. And a little stuff breeds more stuff.

I'm determined to de-clutter the different areas of my home that tend to be the catch-all for whatever we don't want to put away. First on the attack list: the top of the dresser in my bedroom.

This is keeping it real, folks - Here is the untouched "before" shot.

Let's see what we have here:

  • unclaimed 4-H ribbons
  • Hunter's nebulizer (which the bucket contained three butter knives purchased in September to spread peanut butter during a road trip, two batteries, and three acorns)
  • a rock
  • hospital bracelets from Hunter's birth (he's 3!!)
  • a lonely puzzle piece
  • everything Bryan carries in his pockets daily
  • fabric from a skirt I completed weeks ago
  • misc. papers, books, and junk, junk, junk!! 
I keep this out for my children's amusement.
This is Bryan and I twenty-one years ago.
Recognize the frame, Megan?

And here's what it looks like at this very moment. Is that angels singing that I hear? The plate is for Bryan's keys and phone at the end of the day. That little basket for those mystery screws and buttons that need a home.
