The more thought I put into this Journey into Frugality, the more areas of my life I realize could be considered "fugal" if done right.
My Home... Nope, I'm not talking about energy efficiency , though that is very important... I'm talking about space! As I have whined and complained about many MANY times.. we have a very very small house... there are 7 of us living here, this leave very very little space...
The problem is... It it very cluttered. Not "dirty" but cluttered. Every horizontal surface in my house seems to be a magnet for "stuff".
I have stacks of "stuff".
I have bins of "stuff".
I have closets full of "stuff".
I have bags of "stuff".
I have shelves of "stuff".
I have boxes of "stuff".
Too much stuff.
I need to be fugal with my space in my house.
Today I am going to start with my office/desk area.
I am going to purge and throw out "stuff".
I am going to fight my urge to keep things.
This is a very big deal for me.
I don't like to throw "stuff" out. I never have.... I look at my stuff and think.. "Hey I might need that someday!" So it sits in a stack of stuff and I never ever end up using it.
The Mam-of-My-Dreams, however could throw out everything!!
He will be shocked when he comes home and finds things a little less "stuffed & Cluttered".
I mean I want to have a tidy clutter-free home....
I want to be able to showcase the things I really love instead of it getting lost in the clutter.
But I get overwhelmed then quit.
I am NOT going to get over whelmed this time. (I hope)
I will get clutter gone. (or at least greatly reduced)
I will organize the "Stuff" that I do decide to keep.
So now.. I am sitting behind one bin labeled "Throw Out"
One bin labeled "Sell"
One bin labeled "Keep"
and one bin labeled "Donate"
Wish me luck....
If you don't hear from me in a day or two, please send help.... I may have gotten stuck under "Stuff"!
