We had a very wonderful Christmas. It was in my opinion one of the least stressful Christmas holidays we have had ever. That is what I strive for! In my opinion that is the way Christmas should be.
Last summer while cleaning out the garage from remodeling I donated a lot of Christmas trees. I came to realize I dearly missed these when decorating this year for Christmas. I felt the need to declutter and drastically minimize our lives this past summer . I still feel we have a lot more to go on this...my dream home is ironically either MUCH larger or MUCH smaller than this!!! back to Christmas... I have to admit I decorated the two trees we still have and had many more ornaments than tree space. As I vowed to buy tree's at yard sales and thrift stores in the coming year in my moment of despair for our next Christmas, I had three totes full of Christmas decorations sitting in my dinning room! My thoughts about this, do I have ornaments because I had tree's, or did I buy tree's because I had beloved ornaments to display? I have a sneaking idea that it is the first. I am planning on donating all that is not family treasures to charity and save precious space both in our home and in our garage. I am always very excited about cleaning, organizing, and de-cluttering! :) When I can tell my husband what is in each container in the garage instead of having to look through it to know, then I feel that I have balance in the keeping stuff department. I like change in my home too but I am going for small changes that take up less space. A candle change? Something along those lines :)
I know full well I am not the only one who loves to have an organized home!!! So in the spirit of de-cluttering, and making our homes beautiful and functional at the same time I share with you this. Inspiration for your laundry area.
