With all of the cleaning and organizing that I’ve been doing lately, you’d think it was Springtime. I’ve mentioned before how I cannot stand clutter, but despite my best efforts, it always seems to creep back in. Such is life with a little one, I suppose.
Of course, us big kids could always stand to get rid of some stuff, too. That’s why my new motto is “Let it Go“.
Clothes that haven’t been worn all year, and likely won’t see the light of day again? Let it go. Random junk in drawers that serve no real purpose, other than to make me crazy? Let it go.
I don’t want to come back from Bulgaria to a messy place at the end of September. Usually when we leave for trips, our bedroom looks like a tornado ripped through it. I’m going to avoid that this time.
I know it probably sounds like we have a lot of stuff, but I swear we really don’t. Living out of suitcases and traveling across the ocean for several years will quickly turn you into a minimalist. I start to twitch every time we acquire some new household item, no matter how necessary and useful it may be. In any case, I’m determined to have a clean, organized space to come home to this fall.
