Simplifying Life

I began October with the goal of simplifying my life by organizing my home and doing things to make cleaning quicker and easier.

I began by purging closets and drawers.  I pulled everything out and in very little time separated clothing, electronics, and toys into three categories: keep, trash, and donate.  BUT I am still left with papers I have not gone through to determine what to keep and what to trash.

Pacoffe table with storagepers aside, there have been other accomplishments toward meeting my goal.  I have made specific spaces for storing materials for all my activities: writing, sewing, music, jewelry, painting.  Glass top furniture pieces have been eliminated or replaced with easier to keep clean pieces.  The glass and wood coffee table is now one of those all wood lift top tables with storage.  Nick-Nacks that require tedious dusting have been removed.

 

 

 

Even the outside of my home is being simplified.  No more painting and staining the deck and porches.  Wood has been replaced with composite decking.

Purge…purge…purge.

Once I have the house done, it’s on to the storage shed.

Now, back to those papers.
