I love getting cozy on the couch with a good book and a hot cup of coffee. Having a comfortable space where you can relax, unwind from a long day of work, watch a favorite movie with your littles, or snuggle with a book on a rainy day is important.
How many personal items do you own? This includes your clothes, shoes, jackets, hats, toiletry items, cell phone, charger, bike, sleeping bag… the list can go on and on! What do you think your number is? My number and list are below.
When you open your pantry, what do you see? Is it full of different boxes of cereals, granola bars, crackers, instant oatmeal, mac and cheese, and cookies? Is it overflowing? Are unknown containers tucked back and forgotten behind the new ones up front? Is it a mess? Would you rather just shut the door and not deal with it?
My husband and I downloaded season 3 of HGTV’s Tiny House Nation and watched the first few episodes last night. One thing I love about this show is that they talk about decluttering – paring down to your favorite items to take to their new tiny home.
With our first baby, we buy new clothes for our little one because we are starting something new. As our little one quickly grows, we hold onto their tiny outfits for baby number two (or three or four). We are trying to be smart and save ourselves money. This is a great idea, but what if you end up with a closet full or a dozen boxes worth of clothes for your future baby?
