Daily Life: Goodbye Clutter!

19 Mar

Today I am keeping up with my spring cleaning “fever” and going through the storage. I think my favorite part of going through stuff is finding things that I can use around the house to keep myself organized or just for fun! Yes, I am supposed to be getting rid of everything but I always seem to find things to use that I never realized was tucked away 😀 It’s like thrift store shopping and finding some awesome things but even better because they are FREE!

I am also going to have to really push myself to get rid of a lot of stuff. I’m the kind of person who keeps something thinking I’ll use it later and 9 times out of 10 I end up using it.. but all those 10’s that never get used pile up 😛 My mom is going to help me today which is awesome because I am a hoarder and she is a chucker. She’s going to help me take a second look at something and ask me if I really need it instead of “hmm I could use this later .. maybe .. one day..” HAHA!

Hopefully through this whole process I start seeing more in a need now kind of mindset. I really think getting rid of the clutter in my life is going to give me more space to be creative and be a huge stress reliever! Plus I am a seriously thrifty shopper so if I do chuck something that I could have used later .. well I can always find it later for an awesome price but at least it was taking up space for the years I didn’t use it!

I can’t wait to show you all my awesome finds, but I also can’t wait to have some serious crafty space to get my one year plan easily organized and room for whatever else is to come out of it!

Love Always,

J

    It’s hard not to feel the push to clean out when spring – well – springs! Some people say it’s like exercise. You hate doing it and put it off, but once you actually do it, you love the results. Way to go!

      This spring cleaning has been amazing! Even after all the exhaustion I can now go in the storage and not stress out! I found some awesome things to use for crafts to come and cannot wait to get it started! Hopefully this inspires me to go through some other places in my house and get a little more organized 😉
