Today I spent a lot of time organizing. Cleaning out. De-cluttering. It always is a great feeling to have everything in neat little rows and clean. Then as the days go by, it starts to pile up again. Why does that happen? My husband always says to me, “Its because you have FOUR kids.” I guess it is. But it bugs me. I love when everything is just cleaned and re-organized. I hope it stays this way for longer than usual. I try to stay on top of the kids with picking up. I have also tried to get rid of stuff we don’t need so there is less to take care of. So far I am happy with it.
The room that is usually the hardest for me is our office/schoolroom. That’s where all of the “stuff” piles up. Books, books, and more books. Paperwork. Crafts. Completed assignments. The main thing is to put it away as soon as we use it, so things don’t pile up. Easier said than done when you are 5 years old 😉
How about you? What are is hardest to simplify? Toys? Clothes? Books? Meals?
