I used to think I needed to be more organized, but I’m beginning to realize that I just need less stuff. I opened my junk drawer, (the one I’ve already organized at least four times since we moved into this house five months ago) to rearrange the same disheveled junk.
What do I need with thirty pens, ten magnets, and four pairs of scissors? In this drawer alone, we have a 6/1 pen-to-person ratio, and one of our family members cannot even hold a pen. Not to mention the other two are banned from ink…that leaves Mr. Coppertop and I with fifteen pens apiece for any given moment.
Insert goal: get rid of ridiculous amount of pens.
Thinking through all the other areas in my house that need work, I thought I would pose a little declutter challenge for myself and share it with my readers if you wanted to join me.
Instead of taking on big jobs like declutter the entire garage in one afternoon, I’m going to do a small thing every day. This is a little more practical because I’ll probably have a baby on my hip and a short window of time to get it done 😉
