Spring is well under way my friends, and with that, comes spring cleaning. I’m taking spring cleaning to the max this year because, simply put, we have way too much shit.
We’re both guilty of holding on to things for way longer than necessary. I, for one, can tell you that I have a shirt in my closet that I haven’t worn for 5+ years because my boobs don’t fit into it anymore, yet, I just can’t seem to part with it. As if I’m going to wake up tomorrow two cup sizes smaller and able to fit into a shirt that’s no longer in style. When I type it out, that actually sounds more like a nightmare than a reality I want any part of.
I also hoard crafting supplies. Not because I’m crafty, but because I want to be, even though I’m not-so-secretly terrible at it. What can I say? It’s a pipe dream.
So, while I might be responsible for some of the clutter around our house, Lee’s guilty of way more. Like, straight-up, first degree premeditated guilty of hoarding needless shit. Case in point: I purchased 8 new Fiestaware place settings last fall. We still have all the boxes. You know, because we’ll need to transport them when we move in 10 years. So we have 8 empty boxes sitting in our house for an eventual move someday in the distant future. This also goes for small appliance boxes, TV boxes, etc. Do you need a phone cord for a 1997 Nokia 6110? Lee’s got you covered there as well.
Regardless of who’s more at fault for our pack-rat behavior (*cough* Lee *cough*), I found a great article to help us get our lives more organized so that we can make room for a baby. I hope you enjoy this list as much as I do!
