Organizing My Stuff, Part 1
I am on an organizing mission! I want to organize my stuff, my time, my thoughts– my life! 🙂 Here is how the mission began…
A couple of months ago, we decided to replace our 60+ year old cabinets! This sounded great until I realized how much I had actually accumulated in those cabinets! As I began to empty everything into my dining room, I could clearly see that I had TOO MUCH STUFF! When it was time to put things back into the new cabinets, I knew I had to part with the two extra can openers, grilled cheese maker, sippie cups no longer in use, tupperware with no lids, third clear casserole dish, ten extra vases… Whew! I needed help! My sister, who could leave the restaurant business and become a professional organizer, came to the rescue! After we finished sorting, I was able to donate box after box of unused stuff! My kitchen is such a peaceful place now! 🙂 I can easily find everything I need and so can everyone else!
The kids can easily unload the dishwasher because the things we use most have been moved down low into a drawer they can reach!
The plates, cups, and bowls that the children use most have been put in a low drawer , too.
In the process of getting the kitchen cleared of all clutter, I lost (and found) two important papers! I have to tackle that soon! Having an organized kitchen has felt so good, though, that I want to get every other room organized! I am working my way through The House That Cleans Itself. It involves lots of steps to change your home to fit your needs! It is also written from a Christian perspective, so I’ve enjoyed reading the verses in each chapter. I got the Kindle version so that I could start my mission ASAP.
My super-organized friend is doing some organizing of her own, so I am motivated to stick with this! She just finished “Operation Playroom!” That’s where my “Operation Organize!” title came from! Thanks, friend! 🙂 I will update on my mission soon!
