It started early last week with getting a shredder. I do all of my banking online these days, including paying the bills
Next I organized my office with my sister (which I posted about this weekend here). Today, I took all of the paper, boxes, mail and stuff out of the kitchen and moved it up to my office where my new shredder is. Then I took all the fake greenery above my cabinets and tossed that. Who needs more dust catchers anyway? I even went through all the cleaners and chemicals under my kitchen sick, trashed the old ones, and put the ones I rarely use in a bin and brought to the garage. Ahhh, it feels so good to get rid of unnecessary mess. All the clutter was really starting to get to me. I was feeling like my house was chaotic all the time. I was edgy and cranky with Princess Emilee and Princess Gracie because I just could not get a grip on things. It's amazing how doing a little bit of cleaning makes you feel so much better.
My goal for the rest of the week:
- Buy some cheap shelving for the basement and move some of my dry store items down there (i.e. canned goods, pasta, soup, paper towels, toilet paper, etc.).
- Make room in my cabinets for items we use on a daily basis but have no place to put them (i.e. cereal, bread, shake mix - for the hubs)
