Simplify ~ Declutter ~ Organize
Are you ready to declutter? Do you look around your home and realize that you have way too much stuff?
As many of you know, I recently moved from a large home into a very small temporary home. I sold so much of my stuff including furniture, artwork, rugs, etc. However, now I have a very messy garage with boxes. And after more than six months, I can't even remember what's in the boxes.
How would you like to be faced with this mess? LOL. It actually looked better before I started.
I found some handy guidance on decluttering from a site called Life Your Way. They offer free printables for every occasion. Here's the one I used for decluttering.
|Ask yourself these questions and then ...just do it!|
Believe it or not, I've never had a garage sale. We weren't permitted to have them in our previous gated neighborhood but here it's a treasure trove every Thursday through Saturday. And I'm lucky to have friends who live on a more highly trafficked corner lot. And they are willing to allow me to use their driveway. Thanks Jack and Anna May! They even have those great signs already printed up.
I've found that with less stuff:
- I can focus more on what's really important.
- There's less stuff to clean
- The house is more orderly.
- I'm not always looking for the latest gadget or thing to add to my house.
How about you? Do you even remember what's in the boxes in the attic or basement?
Blessings and love,
