I have decluttered and minimized and decluttered and minimized some more, but some days I feel overwhelmed by all our stuff.
Today I realized there are two reasons that I am feeling this way....
1. Our stuff hasn't gotten put away in its proper place.
2. I haven't finished what I've started.
I really need to work on both of these areas. Granted, I'm not the only one living in this house, but I will not pick up after everyone all the time. So in addition to setting a good example, I need to help my children to learn to put their stuff away.
Right now a quick walk around my house shows so many examples of how stuff either hasn't gotten put away, or we've started something and haven't finished it....
|coats, hats and gloves left out after playing outside|
|my fleece thrown over the couch after taking it off|
|kitchen counter littered with stuff...my scarf I took off while cooking, dinner that never made it to the refrigerator, the remote control and a few toys|
|papers that never made it to the recycling bin|
|Compassion letters I started but haven't finished|
|stuff we pulled out the desk that doesn't belong there - but we didn't finish our job, we just left it on the futon|
|coats - hanging only inches from the coat closet|
What new habits do you need to create?
I'm linking up with Yvonne for Tackle it on Tuesday
