I’ve declared December to be Clean the House Month!
Why? I really need to get more organized. I haven’t written much this month, due to many things. Nor have I been reading the blogs I follow. I looked at my Google Reader this morning and there were 147 posts waiting for me. I definitely haven’t been involved.
My excuse? Life and a guy. What can I say, I got distracted by my personal life, which is going very well by the way. I was catching up with some of the posts this morning and I am down to 97 left to read. The minimalist blogs in particular really started to sink in. I already thought I was living fairly minimally in my 673 sq ft house. Then I went into the bathroom and I thought to myself;
“I have six towels that I don’t use sitting on shelves in the bathroom. They are for decor only!”
Really? Why do I have towels for decoration? I should use everything I own or not have them at all.
So, I realized I don’t live minimally or smartly for that matter and December is going to be my Clean the House Month. I am going to really looking at what I own, sell things, give things away, reorganize and make everything useful one room at a time!
