I am feeling the urge to simplify our lives at home. Another goal for the new year. There are many ways I can do this I know. The first thing I want to do is declutter the house and get rid of unwanted and unneeded items.
Stuff is just that, stuff. It clutters our house, our thoughts our lives. For me, having less is better. I don't feel as stressed or overwhelmed when I don't have things laying all over the house. Nothing makes me (or my hubby) more frustrated than looking for something and having to wade through piles of stuff just to find what I am looking for. I think I will feel more content having less things.
My plan is to start with one room and go through it's entire contents. I started this last Friday in the kitchen. I went through every cupboard and drawer and cleaned, organized and purged any items that we haven't been using. I was able to throw one bag of trash out and have another bag and a half to donate.
I am happy to get going on this project. I feel good about starting fresh, purging items that we no longer use or need. Cleaning and organizing things so that our life can be that much simpler.
