Simply a New Year!


I’ve never really set resolutions before, but I’m going to try something new this year.  This is the year that I simplify my life.  Unplug more and get ride of emotional and physical junk.  I have been researching the Minimalist lifestyle and while I’m not ready to live in a 500 sq. ft. tiny home (I have three kids), I do need to clean out the clutter.  As a wife and mother I feel like 90% of my day is spent shuffling crap I don’t need from one spot to another.  That insanity has to stop. Personally, I think the clutter, physical and noise, is negatively affecting my creativity, my happiness and my health.  In the next few days I will be setting up some new years resolutions for simplifying my life.

First on the list is picking a room each month to de-clutter and de-junk.  I basically have about 12 spaces in my home, including bathrooms and kids rooms and I will be tearing through one a month.  I will be envisioning a move. “If I were moving next week…”  Would I really want to pack this whatever it is and take it to the new house?  Have I used it in the last year? Does it fit?  Or am I just shuffling it from place to place, cramming more stuff into already over crowded closets and drawers.  We have lived in this home for over 16 years and it really needs a good clean out!

To get me started I’m reading Simplify:

Join me!  I would love to hear encouraging words of wisdom from any others who have gone on this journey.

TaTa for now!
