It’s Anti-Procrastination Tuesday
I know tradition is to wait for Spring to clean all the nooks and crannies of our homes. I just couldn’t wait! Since my work schedule has increased so much, having a very tidy home is mandatory. The kids, and husband, do as much as they can to maintain. The best solution is to keep our home as simple as possible.
Aahhhh, I remember when our home was all new (to us, 2006 remodel). So much of our stuff was still packed away. It was easier to keep my house clean when I didn’t have so much stuff around.
The closets must be cleaned out. The drawers organized.
Even the file cabinets are out of control. Why do I feel the need to keep all this paperwork? If I haven’t looked at it by now, it needs to go.
You can’t always bring a reusable shopping bag, or else you won’t be able to get a paper bag to throw all your paper recycling away.
I even got the freezer cleaned out this week! As I walked in the door one evening, it occurred to me, I could take off my gloves and put them in my purse or keep them on so I could unload the freezer and not get cold. After several days of contemplating doing this seemingly monumental task, it only took about 20 minutes to unload, make a list of everything inside, and put it all away.
It’s been a pretty rough morning already but I’m glad I took a minute to finish this post. Now to finish making chicken fajitas for dinner.
