Guys, it’s already the end of September! Can you believe it?! This year is flying by and once we hit mid-October the holiday season is basically upon us (YAY!) which means POOF! 2017 is almost done! If reading that sparks some inner turmoil because of the organizing projects you haven’t started yet, take a deep breath and calm down. This guest post from Laura at orgjunkie.com can help with that dilemma and hopefully will spur you on to get control over some of the clutter in your life.
Now Laura is an organized person with an organizing blog, but even she has areas to work on. In her post Rearranging Kitchen Cupboards and Making Hard Choices she lets her readers in to one area where she needed to develop a better system – her kitchen. More specifically, her cookbooks (ooh hitting a nerve with anyone?). She writes:
“It was time to say goodbye because now that I eat Paleo I never use them anymore. So there they sat, looking pretty but never seeing the light of day. I also now needed that space for other things. It wasn’t easy to let them go, it’s funny what we get attached to because of the significance they represent. I always wanted to be a stay at home mom and these cookbooks were a major part of that huge transition in my life.”
If you can relate completely to her statement, or if you have your own “cookbooks” that may need to be removed from your house, click the title of the blog post in the paragraph above to see Laura’s advice, along with some questions you can ask yourself so you can focus in on what exactly you want for each space in your house.
So what are the “cookbooks” in your home? What do you need to get rid of to create more space? Let me know in the comments below!
