I reached out to you guys and asked for your before and after decluttering photos, and most of you told me you didn’t even THINK to take a “before” picture when you started.
I totally get that, because I was 3 years into my minimalism journey before I started documenting anything!
Here are the two before and after pics I got from you guys. 🙂
17. Sink counter before and after decluttering
I know it doesn’t seem very exciting, but I have kept my bathroom counter exactly like this for a month now. Consistency is key for me!! Maintaining this means I can move on to the next area and keep it decluttered, too!!

18. Before and after bookshelf declutter
I’m a self-declared collector of books and office supplies, but these are the things that pile up in my bedroom and on the dining table, causing my husband and me intense anxiety.

My goal isn’t to have bare walls or 5 toys to choose from but to be more intentional with what I bring into our home and into our time.
I appreciate you so much, Marissa! Thank you for sharing your story with us all.
