You have to start somewhere!
I am not a big project kind of girl…. I don’t do big Spring cleaning or get the urge to paint a room. I don’t put new covers on furniture or replant flower beds. Just not my thing.
But some things just have to be done. I realized yesterday that we are getting buried in clutter. It’s mostly baskets, boxes and piles of stuff that has no real home. If it has a home, one of us was too lazy to put away properly at some point. (See, I admit that I am FAR from perfect!)
I was trying to think about how to get started without being overwhelmed….
I decided to do 5 things a day. I will pick 5 things (basket, drawer, bag, pile, cupboard) a day to go through. I will be brutal about throwing things away and enforcing that the things that are in the wrong place go to the right place. I hope that by keeping it small and do-able I will not quit.
I did my 5 today and it felt good…
