decluttering & finally breathing

When people used to ask, “how do you do it?” as i was finishing up my last year of grad school, I was relieved that they’d never get a peek into my home.  If they had seen what my house looked like at any given moment, they might have said, “oh, that’s how she’s able to juggle everything.” I was a working mom working on my MSEd so there was no way that I could keep a home in tiptop shape. By the way,  I didn’t even feel remotely guilty about having a messy home, and I’m so proud of myself for realizing that I can only do so much.  Life is a balancing act. I understood that and once you get that, reallllly get that, life is good.  Now that I have my degree & classes, papers, research, etc. are no longer on my to-do list, I can focus on every single corner in my apartment. help me. ha. honestly, i feel great. I feel like I can breathe better without all the clutter.

what is your decluttering method? For some odd reason, I like dragging everything from one problem area into my dining room and using that space to organize and declutter. Is that weird? I’ll work on my personal closet tomorrow & will most likely, as I just said, drag everything into the dining room and go from there. Odd, but I get things done using this method.

    I’m actively ignoring piles of clutter, and avoid going to the basement reaction. But, one day, it will hit me and then I’ll be like a crazed woman on a mission. 😉
