A few weeks ago we discovered that the storage unit we’d been keeping a bunch of things at was not well-built and much of our things were water damaged or molded. All of the furniture, some books and a few other things weren’t salvageable, but we were so thankful that the things most important to us were only minimally damaged. Baby pictures, keepsakes from my childhood and all the other things that money just can’t replace are mostly okay. And an added bonus? It sure did make it easy to decide what to keep and organize and what to get rid of! 😉
Usually, though we need a bit more intentional help in getting rid of the excess and getting the rest organized. We need a reason. We need some inspiration and direction. I’d like to offer that to you and myself, today.
Elsie at Richly Rooted shares 10 Reasons to Start Simplifying Now, which is the intro to a series where she tackles a different area that needs organizing for each post in the series. Good for those of us needing some focused and doable steps.
MaryEllen at The Imperfect Homemaker has a post on How to Declutter Your Home in 7 Easy Steps, which I definitely need to do. Our cute little old farmhouse is really short on storage space, so even a little bit of clutter looks huge… and I have more than a little bit! 😉
