Happy Monday friends! What an epic weekend for football! My Hawks kicked some Panther behind on Saturday and Green Bay kept the Cowboys from advancing on Sunday, so Green Bay will be here playing my boys on Sunday at noon. You can bet we will be at that game. I’m a little bummed the Broncos lost because I love Peyton Manning, and the Patriots won which I really don’t love, so this should be an interesting weekend in the AFC with the Colts at the Patriots.
There’s no better way to start the new year than with a clean, organized home. One thing Huebie and I always talk about when it comes to our home is how much space we have, but how much crap we have too. When we moved in 3 1/2 years ago we had 3 almost completely empty rooms: our living room, one bedroom and our bonus room. Today, every room in our home is filled to the brim. I don’t know how it happened but it did, and now we’re wanting to scale back and at least get the clutter under control. I want us to organize our lives and keep it that way! There is nothing wrong with “empty space” in a home; not every nook and cranny doesn’t need to be filled with “stuff.”
I decided that we should start going room by room and really focus on only keeping those things we actually use and need. I know there will be some sentimental things we hold onto (my Christmas Barbie collection for example), but for the most part we have way more “stuff” than we need.
The 3 rooms we’ll be focusing on are:
– Bonus/play room
Within each of those rooms I have specific areas I want to focus on as well. I plan to share each room in separate posts as we move through the house. I know the office and kitchen will take a lot more work than the bonus/play room, so I’m not expecting to have this all done in a week, or even two. We’re going to go at our own pace and do what we can as we have free time.
We will first tackle the bonus/play room, then move onto the office, and then the kitchen.
We will also go through the other rooms in the house as well (family room, laundry room, bathrooms, guest bedroom, master and Little A’s room), but those rooms don’t need as much love and have stayed pretty organized.
Question of the day: Do you have any areas of your home you want to organize this year?
