I mentioned the other day that I've been starting to clean out. To beat the cleaning mind game and simplify the clutter. Even since I posted that article and really ever since I started cleaning in my house something has been weighing heavily on my mind.
I have WAY too much stuff. Even cleaning out and having less stuff I still have way too much.
Now I really don't have a very big house right now. And maybe compared to some I don't have alot of stuff. But I've just been feeling like I don't appreciate what I have enough. So I feel like it's time to do something about it. Time to seriously clean out and only keep what we really need and use. The best way I can think to do this is to take one room at a time and take my time going through it. (And keep it organized along the way!)
Would you want to join me?
I'll be taking one room in my house at a time and taking one week just to work on that one room. I'll be using my system of a bag for garbage, a box for selling, and a pile for items that need to be moved elsewhere, as I clean. A whole week should give us plenty of time to get the room cleaned out and only leave the things we really need behind. At the end of everything I'll be having one really big rummage sale and donating the rest!
So what do you think? Things like this work better with support groups! If you are with me we start Monday!
P.S. I highly recommend doing these 2 things over the weekend if you plan to join in. First, make sure you grab some boxes and garbage bags. Second, I showed you this book the other day but I highly recommend getting the book Simpler Living to help you in this!
