I’m still focusing on clean home selfcare. I have made great progress in my “closet” area. I have removed broken stuff that got shoved the the back of the closet… a shameful amount of recycling (college stuff I haven’t touched in years and that pile of shoe boxes that I have kept) … took out four cram-jammed garbage bags full of clothes and junk. And what-da-ya know I still have plenty of clothes and belonging and feel lighter!
I also went through our linen closet and did away with bedding that was old/did have a match. We have two dressed beds and now one extra queen size set. I will take the twin sizes to the trailer and we are done! This promotes – not having a pile of laundry, rather doing it so I can re-dress the bed.
Hopefully I can get my “closet” area in order fully/finalized this weekend. Next step, jewelry- get everything in one spot… Anything to part with?
Also I’m finding we have a lot of junk towels… How many towels do 2 people need… Also why do I want a junky one? Goal: Toss the frayed ones… That hurts me for some reason… That’s going up with hoarders for ya! I wouldn’t want my guest to use them… Why am I using them?
Here’s another quick clean video I’m using as inspiration:
- Have ignore the mess days – doesn’t have to be Pintrest perfect clean, but focus on the CLUTTER/excess
- Have ignore organization days and just grab just the obvious “need to go’s”- garbage, broken, “doesn’t belong in this room”, etc.
- Progress over perfection – short time that is focused and productive
- Bag or box (garbage, donate, etc.) items before leaving that area
- Know when to have others help vs making an executive decision
- Set timers
- We realistic about your inventory – her example: how many bedsheets do you really need? her vote 1 extra/bed in your home
- Don’t use any more or is it in the wrong place?
- One space overwhelming? Spend just a min or two grabbing out a few items…. This will make you feel better, but not take up a bunch of time
