I am in the mood for a good purge of stuff. Sometimes when I'm cleaning up a room or putting away laundry, I just feel overwhelmed with all of these things we have accumulated. I know we are quite lucky to have been given most of it, but we don't need it all. Realistically, how many outfits or toys or gadgets do we really need?
This month, I'm going to try to get rid of at least one thing a day. I already started in our closet and found well over ten items we never use or wear. I put a donation box up in our loft (I pass by here often so I'll see it every day) and I'm just going to drop things in it every day.
One of the other things I'm doing is packing up some toys. I'm separating everything into storage bins and I'm going to start rotating them. I know it will help with the clutter, but I'm also hoping it will make playtime more exciting - kind of like Christmas opening something new every few days! ;)
Speaking of Christmas, I can't believe it's right around the corner...and this year we are going to do it a lot differently. Instead of replacing all of the things I'm getting rid of now, we are doing the Four Things idea - 1 thing you need, 1 thing to wear, 1 thing to read, and 1 thing you want. I'm really looking forward to it! :)
What are your goals for this month?
