miles of piles

Wednesday, January 04, 2017

OK, so I'm exaggerating just a bit, but sometimes it certainly feels that way! I noticed the last couple of days, I've been working on the PILES of stuff lying around. Piles of clothes, piles of paper, piles of dishes, more piles of paper, and piles of JUNK.
So I've decided that there is where I will concentrate my efforts for the next week - no more piles! Everything has a home, or out it goes.
No creating piles. Do things as they arrive.
Since reading and practicing (not perfect yet) the KonMari way, I've been practicing the attitude of looking after my stuff. It's true - when you have less of it, you appreciate it more. I've been folding laundry and each piece like it's my only one. I fold my shirts, pants, and even my socks as if they are my only pair. I even wash my dishes differently now. I'm seeing that I'm treating my stuff less like it's a pain in the butt, but something that helps me have a better life. Everything I have here is to help me have a good life - the one that I want. That includes my things and my food. My body. I am the caretaker of my body. And I will do that by giving it the tidy, organized, healthy, enjoyable and fulfilling environment it deserves.
How about that.

    Good! Decluttering is always liberating. I wanna do it for my art supplies, it's messy in there and not organized!
    Keep sparking, you got this!

    My rule is everything is put away when finished with. Cloths hung up or put away. no cloths in the living area.

    You are an inspiration in the making to me here. I'm cleaning out my food pantries, then I hope that I have enough fuel to undertake a task such as that.
