Happy New Year, Everyone!
Do you make resolutions?
Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t (out of fear of failure I think). This year, I know in my heart I need to do more decluttering around the house. My husband rarely complains about anything, but I know clutter bothers him. So to be considerate, I’m resolving this year to get rid of stuff. I’m going to be brutal about it too…hopefully. So pray for me. LOL!
Once upon a time (no, really), I was ultra-organized and had everything compartmentalized. Everything had a place and it bothered me if things weren’t in its place. Yes, I may have some slightly OCD tendencies…but who’s counting? LOL.
Enter a dynamic ADD/ADHD husband and and then add three wonderful kids to the mix and we have (drum roll…..)
COMPLETE CHAOS! Joyful though. LOL!
Somewhere along the way, early in our marriage and family life, I realized I needed to let go of some of my perfectionistic expectations with regards to a clean and orderly house.
The problem was…I fell mostly out of the organizing habit.
So…in my house there are now an embarrassing number of junk drawers that look like this:
Those photos are humiliating. However, since I know I’m attacking those drawers with my newly revved mad ninja organizational skills soon, my shame will be sanded down to nothing when I get to show you the AFTER photos. LOL! Also, in an upcoming post-I will show you some of my storage solutions for stuff I do keep/stuff we use daily or a lot. :-)
What about you? Do you have any organizing goals for the new year?
What about organizing tips? I LOVE household and decluttering tips!
Where are some great places to donate “stuff”?
