Or should I say clean out Summer. I am using the Summer as a time to really get on top of things again. I am going to take it slow. I still want to be able to enjoy Summer.
I have had it.
I moved 6 months ago, but man it feels like just barely. I got rid of a ton of stuff then, I mean a ton. The people at the thrift store began to know us, because we were dropping off there daily.
I now live in a more open floor plan and I just feel like stuff takes over too quickly. So I am going to do a major de-cluttering. I have so much storage space in my house now that it is so easy to just cram something in storage.
I used to de-clutter with a friend. We would get together and go through each others homes together. We would have great ideas together and it would be so fun. I don’t have that luxury here yet. So I am going to try this one on my own.
I am going to do it room by room, starting with the front room, because that will be the easiest. Really I am just going to be sure everything has a place and we aren’t keeping anything unnecessary in there.
Next I am going to work on the kitchen. I am going to be de-cluttering my hot spots, such as there is this one counter where I stick everything paperwork, then I look at it and it is too overwhelming for me to deal with. I have a file box to file it all in, but really I just get to lazy. The file is in the other room, with a lid on it and a box stacked on it. I need to figure that out. Also I am going to move our workboxes downstairs into the kitchen. It is just to hard to put stuff away for us if they are clear up the stairs and in a closet.
We are also in the process of changing how the workboxes will be set up for Tommy and Emily, Katey’s will pretty much stay the same. I will post about that when it is ready.
We are also finally getting into a Summer routine schedule. That is helping out immensely.
So those two rooms are what I will be finishing up this week and then next week I will be moving into the laundry room and storage room.
Are you doing any organizing, de-cluttering for Summer?
