Can you believe here we are at the end of August? I’ve been busy boxing my middle son’s room up as he heads off to college. When my kids leave we pack up their entire rooms. They are allowed to leave a few boxes behind for me to store for them but other than that they either need to bring the rest with them or donate whatever they no longer want. It makes them have to touch everything they own and make a decision about it. It’s a lot more work up front to do it this way but once it’s done, it’s done and we aren’t storing stuff they don’t even care about. Amen to that! Now it’s time to share with you some of the highlights and organizing resources from August.
