Thinking and thinking some more.

This post and this post have made me think. And think some more. And clean. And reorganize. And look at a shelf differently. And ask "when was the last time I used this?" These posts made me wonder if we, my family and I, are suffocating in STUFF! Why yes, I think in a way, we are.

I know, for my sanity, I must purge. I must clean DEEPLY. I must. I will be in this house day in day out with my little darlings teaching and learning and the clutter will make. me. crazy.

So.....the cleaning continues. Daily. Sometimes hourly.

That's a great place to start! I saw those posts too...Ann's especially makes me long for all those clean, empty surfaces! :)

Have fun.

Purging is hard. But now, before I buy something, I wonder if it will add to the clutter or not. It hasn't been such a bad thing for me. I've still got a ways to go as well.

kudos to you on the cleaning. i used to try that too and now i try to think about why i'm keeping stuff. like this fancy box some make up came in. my heart told me i needed it, but for what? i tossed it when i moved. i do kinda wonder what i'd have put in there if i had kept it.
