This past weekend we were busy moving beds around. My baby (2 in Nov) got my daughter’s twin bed and my daughter (10) got a new double bed. Of course this required both rooms to be re-arranged, over-hauled and purged out as we went along.
In addition to that my middle son (7) and I tackled his room. I didn’t want him to feel left out of all the fun….lol. It definitely needed some re-organization again. Three hours and a full big black garbage bag later and we were done! You should have seen how proud he was of it too. In fact he was so excited that he told me he was going to keep it like that, you know where you could actually see his floor! Ya that lasted all of two days…sigh. Anyway I completely forgot to take pictures for you but once I start my rampage I completely zone out and forget about everything else. For a visual though you can go here to see the last time we did it. Just imagine it ten times worse this time around when we started and the desk and dresser both re-arranged.
I also managed to get two big totes of kid’s clothing to the consignment store. I just didn’t feel up to putting any of it on ebay this time (it’s a lot of work), taking them to the consignment store was just easier and it gets them out of my house faster. One of these days I will get around to sharing my clothing system with you, I promise. I also took bags and bags of stuff to the Salvation Army. It is just so freeing to have it all out of here. It’s all just stuff anyway. One of my favorite quotes is this one:
You never see a hearse pulling a uhaul!
When your home is organized and decluttered…you will be a different person. Your outlook on life changes. Situations that seemed out of control and chaotic now seem manageable. When you wake up and walk to the kitchen to make coffee and your counter-top is clean…your day just got that much easier.The state of your home is in direct proportion to the state of your heart/mind. When you have piles of stuff all over your house, your spirit just gets bogged down with all of it whether you know it or not. When you don’t have to worry about moving your STUFF around, cleaning your STUFF, and storing your STUFF…you have a lot more time to spend doing things things that you love and spending time with your family and friends! And that’s what life is all about.
