I have made it my goal to remove at least one item that I feel I don’t really need. I can give it to a friend, the Salvation Army, or sell it on eBay. 2 months ago

I tend to hold on to stuff. I think I hold on due to sentimental reasons. But I know if I don’t learn to let go, I won’t be in the right place when I get ready to move. So today, I got rid of one thing that I had been wanting to repair. It sat in my shed for several months unfinished. It was easier than I thought it would be, since I have a goal. I need to write these goals down! I mean like on a chalk board or tape them on my bathroom mirror! 2 months ago
...I have been clearing out the spare room where I just tend to DUMP everything. Sorted all my laundry into loads, and the 3rd load is churning around as we speak.
Now I need to make this a regular thing in my quest for a clutter-free life! 11 months ago
...for living with a messy, untidy and thoroughly unhygienic man?
I know that I can never change him, and would not even try – I love him how he is. The trouble is that I travel for work, and if I come home after a couple of weeks, things can be in a bad state. Trouble is, he does not even see it. I tried to talk about bringing in a cleaner but he got really upset and angry and said that he was dealing with it. Total impasse! 13 months ago
Usually I get a break from work in the winter due to snow days but we haven’t had any snow (not that I’m complaining!) so I made my own snow days. I have a lot of vacation time and decided to take time off to work on the house. Usually when I take scheduled time off it’s because I’m having surgery or something less fun. It has been blissful because I am tending to things I have wanted to tackle since we moved to this house (which will be 2 years in June). I read a very helpful book (Clear Your Clutter With Feng Shui by Karen Kingston). Actually I read so many articles and books about clutter that it’s kind of hilarious. I kept telling myself if I just stopped reading and dealt with my crap I could actually have people over. I find watching an episode of any kind of hoarding people is a great motivator. I can’t watch that show without tidying up even during the show. Lucky for me there were no dead cats in my house…that would be tragic!
So far I have taken many things to Goodwill which has felt pretty awesome…usually I just put things in bags and boxes for someday but I made that someday happen a lot sooner by putting them in the car. Of course after I made the donation I found myself wandering around the store but was proud of myself that I left empty handed.
My toy poodle is not completely house trained (or she’s just lazy!) so I am using this stuff called Eww to treat the stains. Once everything is off the floor, I will rent a Rug Doctor and go to town on the carpet.
I have also invited people to come over to give me an extra incentive to clean up. I find writing to do lists and also writing down stuff I already did helps me feel like I’m accomplishing things.
Hope this helps someone if they are looking for some inspiration. 15 months ago
I moved the cookbooks to their new shelves, and put a bunch in the giveaway pile as I did so. Seeing how many I had also helped remind me that I really don’t need any new ones! Between the web and the occasional magazine there are plenty of new ideas, and I’m now quite clear tht I could make years of new recipes just from the books I have nd actually like. 16 months ago
