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.
