So, this week has been a busy week. I have been reading Organized Simplicity. What a great book. However, Tsh’s process is not the same as mine. I am doing what works for me, one area at a time.
I had my husband go through all of his clothes and sort what need to be sorted and purged or thrown away. Not much but now his drawers are no longer over flowing and just full of the clothes he wears.
After seeing just the clothes that hubby wears in his closet, I looked at my cloths and there is no way I actually wear all of them on a regular basis. I got rid of my clothes and left it uncluttered. It doesn’t look so overwhelming now.
I straightened the bathroom cupboards, they weren’t as bad as I was expecting. I will use all the close to empty bottles first.
Yesterday, I went through my pantry, spice cupboard and misc. cupboard. I prepackaged snack food for the car. Now when hubby is looking for snack food it is all in one place. I have a pantry upstairs and a storage room in the basement. I have lined two of the walls with shelves and stored food that I don’t use on every day that I buy in bulk there.
Today I have the rest of the house to take care of. My living area stays fairly clean. It is my desk, the kid’s school cupboard and the kitchen/table that seem to get so messing. I will be working on paper clutter and trying to eliminate unless I absolutely need it.
What are you doing to simplify your life?
