Happy New Year!

Standard

This year I plan to tackle 3 storage issues.

  1. I store way too much physical stuff in my house.  I need to cut back on the amount of stuff I buy, and seek out stuff that comes with less packaging. I have a tendency to save packaging, and everything else, as “art supplies.” But I never use much of it.  Sorting through it all makes me tired.
  2. I store way too much “inspiration” – books and magazines full of fun ideas for craft projects or new techniques; “pins” on Pinterest, “favorites” on Instructables…I accumulate new ideas for stuff I want to do or make nearly every day.  But I rarely make or do any of it.  Having all that stuff just makes me tired.
  3. I store way too much potential energy on my person. 🙂  I have plenty of fat reserves I could be converting to action, but I rarely make use of them.  Carrying the extra weight makes me tired.

I’m tired of being tired! So this year, my 50th (!!!), I’m doing a reset.  I’m gonna use what I have or get rid of it.

These aren’t really resolutions, just the result of getting fed up with myself and all the clutter I (and my family) deal with everyday, which happens to coincide with my birthday last month.

Any advice from readers who have tamed the clutter monster and have kept it caged?  (Not you, MIL – The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up was enough! 🙂 )
