Last year I had started documenting my efforts to clean up the house, and keep it clean, but I got a little bored with that process - the documentation, not the trying to clean and organize. But maybe I'll start again because the documenting does help with motivation.
There are so many reasons to get organized. I can't think of which one is most important. Is it the time lost looking for things? Is it the money spent unnecessarily re-buying something that I misplaced? Is it because we might move this summer after the seminarian graduates? Or is it because I would like my kids not to live in chaos now and pass on the chaos-living to their own families?
Well, all of them.
This week I am going to concentrate on my sewing supplies. I have three large bins full of fabric, patterns, notion and such. Earlier this week I had to dump one out so I could use the bin for a more urgent purpose: storing birdseed. We had this big bag of birdseed in the laundry room and discovered a hole and other evidence of a critter. Better storage was needed, quickly.
Rather than go out and buy a new bin I want to organize the fabric, get rid of stuff we're never going to use, and maybe do some sewing to reduce the stash. Should be a nice project.
