I am so predictable
I failed to declutter for ~98% of 2023 but somehow a fire has been LIT and I am just READY!
(This 100% has to do with the fact that I am not working either of my two jobs right now. Other than writing this post.)
I started getting rid of stuff and now I am on a serious roll. I have a bag for my niece. I stored clothes between A & G’s sizes for G’s future use. Yesterday I went through each kids’ wardrobe with a fine-toothed comb – now their drawers only contains things that they might actually wear (imagine that!). I unearthed size 6 clothing in C’s closet, a million mismatched socks, and more.
Then today, my lovely Boca friend Amanda came over and helped A declutter her room for TWO HOURS (!). I then finished up (two more hours . . .) and now every single item in her room has been considered / curated / decided upon. I am so proud of her for sticking with it AND proud of us all for getting it done.
Time Limited – the key?
We are headed out soon so it may be the fact that I didn’t have dayyyyyys to work on this project that kept me as motivated as I was (and still am). The house (aside from A’s room) is nowhere near where I want it to be but I feel like seeing what was possible in just a couple of hours was really motivating.
HOORAY for the end of December. I love this time.
Now back to my ‘end of year’ podcast playlist (also making me incredibly happy).
