Jan 2020 Monthly Recap, Purge Pile and Organizing Resources

Jan 2020 Monthly Recap

Hey there y’all. We made it through January and only 3 more months of winter to go! Well for me anyway. Here where I live in northern Alberta, Canada, winter never seems to end. But I’m happy to put January behind us especially since I just finished being sick with the flu. That was not fun.

So unlike the rest of the world in January, I didn’t do much organizing in my home at all this past month. I mean yes the flu may have had something to do with that but I’ve really been making a conscious effort to bring less into my home. So even though I saw beautiful displays in the stores such as this one below, I resisted the urge and didn’t purchase a single bin or basket. I know, I’m shocked too! Whoever would have thought this day would come for such an organizing junkie such as I. Ha!

so many pretty organizing bins

They sure are pretty but if I don’t know what I’m going to do with it then I don’t need it.

This would also explain why I only had this one small purge pile this month too.
