Am taking things down I'm also gonna be decluttering, I am NOT gonna pack up any more items that I no longer want, to, save them for another year I'm just gonna let it go so in today's video we are gonna be undecorated, and, decluttering. Before. I start taking down all the Christmas stuff I wanted to show you guys this beautiful, ring set and earring set that I got for Christmas I got the most beautiful layered. Sets it is absolutely. Gorgeous they, are eternity, rings and they go all the way around I thought it would be just kind of unique to wear it as a right-hand ring there are three of them here, if you want an affordable option, as, a wedding, band this. Is the way to go they have a ton of options, including engagement. Rings other. Types of styles and I will have all the information in my description, box so this is 925, sterling, silver, a certificate. To go with it and they. Stand behind their jewelry which is so so important, so if you're looking for an affordable right, hand ring or just some more jewelry or, you want an affordable option, for an, engagement ring or wedding band set, this, is the way to go they also have men's rings I'm going to order one for Chris the, jewelry, is just beautiful. Bracelets, and earrings and, they pick up light so. Magnificently. And I also received these beautiful, pave studs, to. Die. For they're, so dainty I feel, so ladylike, and, pretty, like these on oh my, gosh I love. Them I have made a promise to you guys that I will never ever put anything on my channel that I don't genuinely love I've actually had this for over a week and I told them I will, not share this with people unless it's genuinely, something, I love and I love, it so here we are I just wanted, to show you guys I love sparkly. But, I'm also super frugal, and I don't like spending large, lump sums of money as you guys know so, this was a really nice little surprise and I did pick out my jewelry for this to send me really, really happy so you guys have my, word and I stand behind it I love, it this is an amazing, company if you guys want more information. I'll have all that information in my description box head over there just look at the website you won't be so amazed. So. So amazing so now I'm gonna get focused was picking all this Christmas stuff down. I'm. Gonna start in the front room and. Disassembling. The kids tree I really, was pleased with the way it looked this year I am. Gonna wash this, tree, skirt this was the skirt that I got when, Isabella was 6 months old her first Christmas so it means a lot to me and it, has never been washed but, it looks like the puppy was back there and the cats were lying on it so this. Year I'm gonna go ahead and take care of that before I pack it up I'm gonna wash it and I'm gonna start pulling all the stuff off of the tree I will what. I like to do is lay. Everything on the floor and then I will have it in piles my sentimental items the, plastic. Balls the. Picks etc. And then, I will bring all of the bins in and start organizing it, that way. I might. Be a soldier. To. The border. So. If it looks like I, possibly. Need to go to the restroom I'm actually listening, to, some, worship music in my ear. Pods and, you. Know sometimes you listen to it and you just you just kind of move your body you just got a swipe, back and forth so, if it looks like you know maybe I need to go potty and, that's what it is I'm just really moving to the music. So. Call me on a call, me on a late night, tell. Me you could tell me oh look um I just. Got, on me just got on me tonight. I'm. Hoping I can salvage, the ribbon this year I wasn't, able to salvage the deco mesh that I use last year so that's why I made this. Ribbon here and I really do like it so hopefully, by. Winding, it up very neatly I can use it again next year do you guys have any experience in. That area are you able to reuse, your ribbon every year will you let me know in the comments, below I. Was. Going to put the pillows, away but then I realized, Valentine's. Day is not too far away so, I'm going to go ahead and leave the red pillow covers on the pillow so they are ready to go, do, you guys decorate, for Valentine's, Day do you have like winter, decor, because I, personally.
Love This transition, from Christmas, till. Valentine's Day, we're still a little cooler outside and, I, would like to keep some of the cooler tones and my house so let me know if that's the thing you guys do as well, we like the waves on a big, blue stone you see. The. Other one brings, out the best me. Me. There's all no, super make me feel like do, anything, a dream, love. We, can fight all day and, love and Ickes be always, figuring out. Like. The waves on a babe please don't you see. Me. I. Can. Get enough, of you. Yeah. We have a little messed up baby. You kind of bent down and we can, you phone so it is in the evening I've had it a little bit of trouble actually, honestly a lot of trouble staying focused with. Just, about everything recently. My. Anxieties, definitely, been heightened. And I am going to blame some, life changes, and some. Things. Like that as well as probably, too much caffeine on, that so I'm gonna try to back off a little bit, I. Really want to make some better choices and. If, I feel way to exhaust it instead of you. Know having another cup of coffee or, something like that trying to just be wise, and healthy healthier. And, a, little nicer to my body instead of just trying to go go go so. I've, been having trouble like I said with, my motivation. And the, anxieties, kicked in and, as well as a, little. Bit of depression creeping. Back in and I haven't really talked about it too much because I'm trying to like sort through it but for the past couple of months it's something I've been feeling once, again but. I am very excited because I'm actually gonna go talk to someone. She's a therapist, as well as a life coach next. Week so. I'm, really, really really looking forward to that because I just need to talk to someone about some, of these are really strong feelings, I've been having lately, and. Once. I'm able to sort them out I'll definitely talk to you guys because I just don't want there to be a stigma, around getting, help, anxiety. Depression postpartum. You. Know any type, of things, like that I think we need to just talk about it so, there's not such a negative, stigma as well as being able to feel confident enough to say that we're going to therapy and being congratulated, and, like, supported, during that and not feel like we are weaker, because of it so. As. I was saying it's a very long explanation, it is the evening time now, because. My focus has been all over the place and, I'm. Hoping the lady, can help me with that but, I'm, gonna finish putting all of these items, away and then I'm going to vacuum this, front room this little Dyson, has been working although I will honestly say it's not as good as my they're vacuum. But, I really, hate that when it's on a high power it dies very, very quickly just. Touch. What. Shoes. Once. You do my. Face. Once. You. I'm. Gonna migrate into the main living area, and I'm gonna start taking all of the Christmas items out of here and disassembling, my Christmas, tree. Different. You. It's. About 11:30, in the evening at this point so I'm trying to be quiet as I take the Christmas tree, apart. As you can see I need to paint the side of that faux brick inside this little cove.
Or Cubby under, the entertainment, center this is always, this. Was designed to have a fireplace but we have not done it now that I have really been motivated, to get it done I have, learned that I don't have enough clearance, in this, area it's a slide in one of those freestanding. Fireplaces, so, a neighbor, and Chris are. Gonna actually build me a box that I can put an insert in that will have no heat and I'm so, looking forward to that because whether. We stay in this house or we sell either way I want, to get it looking, presentable, and how I love, so. We're still on the fence we were to think and definitely stay but I just I really just don't know at this point but I am looking forward to crossing, items, off my to-do. List and, finishing, these projects. Maybe changing. I just, realized I didn't, really explain so I apologize, you have to have so many feet, around the, freestanding, fireplace if it, gives. Off heat just. A part of the fire safety code so I do, not have that clearance because there's already an entertainment, center here, so, that is why I have to get a no feet innocent. Oh. Hopeless. Case, we, could be. This. Is day two and, I'm gonna start finishing up everything, that I did pretty much the mess I made it was an absolute, disaster so, I cleaned, up a lot of the areas but I'm gonna finish putting, all of the Christmas items away as well as storing them in the Attic. When. We are storing our Christmas items I like to use color-coded. Tubs. Nothing. Fancy or expensive obviously, for Christmas we do red and green. Thanksgiving. I will usually, just, do clear bin so I can see it however I will just use whatever we have so if it's a different color I don't stress out over it and, for. Halloween, it's green, or excuse me it's black and orange or something like that or again clear clear is my. Favorite because I can just see it and then I don't need to label it. I. Can't. I. Can't. Ah. Ah. I. Did. Wash, the, tree skirt and all of the Christmas blankets I laid a plastic. Bag on the bottom of this bin, and then I will start storing, the. Items, the, softer items of class items fragile, items and this, been with the, blankets. As cushion, and I will wrap some of the globes and. Fragile. Items, with the, Christmas. Dish, towels I like, to repurpose what I have without having to get too much fluff. And fanciness, over, it and then, at the end I'm gonna take an old towel. That I was going to get rid of and just kind of pack, everything, in there. Ah. I. Ah. This, is. Chaos. Sense, Halloween. I have had bends down from the Attic and I've. Tried to kind of set them aside, but. When everything, went up and Christmas came down it came right. Down to where you see it and it has been left that way all month long and we have stepped around things we have third things back in the bends honestly. We have been so careless and, it has been such a mess it has been driving. Me crazy but, I kept telling myself well. I'll just take care of it when we put everything away so now. Is the time I'm gonna declutter, the heck out of everything, here you guys I don't want to see anything, in here that I don't love if I've, had it and I didn't put it out this year it's going away it's, being donated, or given to family, members I am. No longer gonna hold on to things that, you. Know just, aren't, sentimental, to me or don't have value because, it's just stressing, me out so I want to encourage you guys to do, the, same thing and honestly it's, awesome, for the beginning of the year this. Is the time to just really declutter and start, setting some really good healthy, habits, and less. Things, in my house is going, to be something that I'm going to try to do as well as whenever I get something out putting, it back. I filled. Up the back of my car all the way to. Where things were poking out above, the seats in the back there and I took that to the goodwill and just dropped it off I put. All of the bins here it's looking so much better I'm so disappointed that, I actually filmed, me. Going, up the. Ladder and putting things in the Attic I actually stood almost fell off the ladder the tree fell. Out of my hands, I was lifting it over my head to put on the top of the light ladder, you. Guys it was some good footage and I cannot, find it for the life of me I know it, was recording, cuz I kept checking but. It's not here so I apologize, so, all you get to see is me and declutter all this stuff stack. Everything up I put, every, bin including. Two Christmas, trees, up. In that attic by myself, I have absolutely, no upper body strength and, how I did it I just I have no idea but I'll tell you one thing my shoulders, and, my.
Arms Are killing me, today, so I apologize, that footage, is not in here. I. Will. Also be cleaning out more of this garage getting, rid of any of the really toxic chemicals. That we use and any craft supplies I no longer need so I'll be having that sometime, soon but, I just wanted to stop in and say thank, you so much for watching this video if you enjoyed it and got any sort, of motivation, from it or just enjoy the music go, ahead and give it a thumbs up don't, forget to hit that subscribe button, before you go I love you all so much and I will see you in the next one bye.
