I woke up in the early hours of this morning and when I couldn’t fall back to sleep, I thought about how much clutter I could be clearing in the spare room if I actually had the energy to get up and do it (sad, I know, but it always plays on my mind when it starts to feel out of control).
The reason for the out of control feeling was that I hadn’t followed my usual routines as we’d had a few family days out. It’s amazing how quickly things can get feel on top of you.
Turning things around
I knew that getting the kitchen up straight would make me feel better which didn’t take long. Then I decided to sort through some boxes in spare room, which I’m convinced I’d sorted through before. It sometimes feels like I’m on a snakes and ladders board!
I sat just looking at it all for quite some time, and decided that everything that I still couldn’t get rid of just needed me to make a decision.
I was ruthless with what I placed in the charity bags, as these were items that I’ve put to one side before, just in case someone I know might want them. But then I realised that my spare room was becoming a storage area for ‘people that might want things that I have’… and the funny things is… they don’t even know it.
After a few clutter decisions, I cleared an area of the room. My daughters walked in a couple of hours later and congratulated me, which has motivated me to continue tomorrow.
Until next time…
