simplify.


Simplify has been my word for 2016 and as peaceful as that may sound it's been a lot harder than I expected. Especially when I'm like "Give me all the things". I'm a collector by nature and not that there's anything wrong with it, but I'm trying to embrace the simple side of life.

THE DILEMMA:  We have too much stuff. I dread dusting and cleaning, because it takes forever to clear everything off shelves, dressers, tables, etc to clean. So it's time to organize the clutter and it's time to simplify our lives and excess. I have come up with a solution to the problem at hand (too much stuff), and once we face it and do something about it, our place will feel a little more pleasant.

THE RESOLUTION:  Take it one day at a time. When I try to purge our entire home of clutter it can become overwhelming.  By allotting a few minutes a day to this project, I will see a large difference without setting myself up for failure from the beginning. Then we will sell it at a garage sale and what we don't sell, we can donate to Goodwill. I'm attempting A Bowl of Lemons 31 Day Purge challenge in my effort to complete this task. So wish me luck. 

Until next time...
