I decided this space in my bedroom needed some decluttering. I am actually trying to truly declutter my whole house – but you have to start small or you will get overwhelmed. So I started with my bedroom dresser. I took everything off the dresser and cleaned it with wood polish – then added back only the things I used all the time or the things I really like to see all the time. I have struggled with how to store/display my jewelry so that I use it but also so that it does not take over the room. Instead of having it all out either on top of the dresser in boxes or hanging in the room somewhere I store it in the top too drawers of this dresser. Easy to find and have all in one place. Plus they don’t get dusty from sitting out in the room. Less things sitting out on dressers and such leaves less things collecting dust and in need of cleaning.
I took a hard look at all the things I had previously on the dresser and assigned new places for most of them.
