I think I need to radically de-clutter our house. More than nesting, this impulse to clean everything out and start completely fresh has taken over my brain these past weeks.

It’s time to get serious and do something about it.

So, I’m going to go through our closets, pantry and refrigerator. Not to mention, I’m also going to do a sweep of everything we don’t use on a DAILY basis and put it somewhere out of sight. Not on a counter, not on the tv stand, not on my desk. Heck, I might just throw it away.

Decorations that I started with do not count, by the way 🙂 Little odds and ends that have stayed so long they are now permanent fixtures when I scan the room? Very much in danger of becoming extinct.

It could be that I’ve been reading too many Swedish/minimalist design blogs. Or it could be that clutter takes longer to clean, and looks messier quicker. A contributing factor was that I just renewed our lease online a few days ago, and I really don’t want to start accumulating junk! Moving really forces one to sort through things, and I fear we will get bogged down now that we are staying in the same place.

Either way, let the purging begin! Who’s with me?

    I am with you Kelly. My sister shared a quote with me a couple weeks ago. I don’t know who said it, but it is now on my whiteboard in my kitchen.

    “Buy what you need, want what you have.”

    What you are doing is very wise. You will be very glad you did. My new motto is “simplify”.
