I told you guys I am working on two things: simplifying my life and redecorating. Simplifying can be more daunting than one would imagine. Simply because it takes a lot of cleaning and I am not known for my cleaning skills (ask my husband). Redecorating also takes some skills and I am not a domestic person.
However, both simplifying and redecorating encompass important aspects of life to me: the idea that life is too short and "things" only hold us back; and the fact that home is always my favorite place in the world.
So, I will start with the simplifying. First place to tackle is my closet. It is turning into a black hole of things. And who needs that many shoes? I only have 2 feet last time I checked!
We have also started the redecorating. My art supply bookshelf will have to move to give place to a formal dining table (we only have a dinette in the kitchen) and that couch will be replaced by something that's more our style. The "kids" will continue to have full access to the new couch, but I will be replacing the red sheets with a comfy throw.
The little area with the bamboo trees is the only area I actually worked on since my hubby and I got married... I haven't even hung our wedding photos :)
Do you guys have any tips of purging and organizing for the domestically impaired?
