Wow. It’s 2019 already? … and I haven’t posted since mid-October. #worstbloggerever
Note: I’ll have another whole post on new years ‘resolutions’ and goals for 2019 but I want to follow up on my last post. A couple learnings since then, inventory-ing is not for me. I am not consistent enough on a daily basis to keep that going. Secondly, it’s a lot of work (I’m lazy…) and I’m just generally not good at keeping things “in it’s place.” What I WAS able to accomplish was placing all my clothes from my closet facing the opposite way (with the opening of the hanger facing out) to flush out how many clothes I don’t wear over a 60 day period of time. I ended up getting rid of SO MANY CLOTHES this way.
Other ‘to-do’s’ we have gotten done in the past couple weeks are:
Hung diplomas and picture frames in our office room and our extra bedroom
Change out all plastic hangers for velvet hangers (my clothes no longer end up on the floor).
Painted our main floor bathroom and found a mirror we like to replace and make it feel more “finished” (the existing mirror that we had didn’t have a frame).
Put all my shoes in plastic bins where they can be seen (then maybe I’ll wear more of them).
Installed a slide-out garbage and recycling in the kitchen. This makes such a difference - we have always just put our recycling on the counter, cluttering up our kitchen space.
Installed a slide-out drawers for tupperware and cutting boards (highly recommend these - we bought ‘Rev-A-Shelf’ brand from Lowes). This is such a good investment to ensure that you can see all the things that you own.
It feels so good to get so much accomplished in such a small amount of time! My lovely husband got a new job (I can post a whole novel on this in a later post) and it has allowed so much more energy and time to get this stuff done. I’ll have a whole post coming on jobs and thoughts on that front since so much has happened lately… so watch for that!
