Less Is More

"Project Organization" is coming along quite well, thank-you-very-much! I have sorted through and purged all of the useless contents from my entire house (I only have a few more rooms and closets left to tackle) and, surprisingly, I'm kind of having fun with this whole process. I'm actually sort of sad knowing that the "sortanizing" (as Ali likes to call it) is almost done.

Oh, I'm kidding. Because......well......that would make me a complete dork, missing something like sortanizing.

As if.

However, there is something very freeing about letting go of "stuff." Especially stuff that wasn't really needed in the first place and was just taking up space and creating chaos in my life. Chaos that was slowing stealing my sanity, one Lincoln log after another and one Polly Pocket accessory after another. I mean really, could toys these days have more pieces?

I am, however, happy to learn that what they say is true - less is more.

Now, if I can only get the scale to relay that to my hips and butt, I'd be all set.

  2. doesn't it feel so good to organize and declutter? I just recently cleaned out our basement as we are going to start finishing it - Hooray!! But holy cow had we collected a TON of stuff over the past 7 years. I should not even call it stuff, as it was garbage! I filled an entire 24 foot enclosed trailer with crap to take to the dump - it was so nice. Cheers to you for tackling the whole house! :)

  3. I am organizing too! BTW, thanks so much for your sweet comment the other day and thanks for sharing your heart with me. No worries about your long comment, it meant so much to me!! Feel free to share any time, praying for your situations friend!
