Stuff, Stuff and More STUFF!
Last night we took on the task of cleaning it out. HOLY WOW!! We've collected a lot of crap!! I figured we'd have a box of linens and maybe two of dishes and that would be it. But two hours later and too many boxes to count, we still weren't done. I can't believe how much stuff will fit in a little trailer. I found things I forgot I even had. I also found some stuff I KNEW I had and have searched the house several times looking for. Not once did I think of looking in our trailer for it. DUH!!
This all made me think of how much clutter we allow in our lives. Not just the "stuff," but the activities and obligations that take us away from what's really important--our families. I have a cute little plaque hanging in my bedroom that says, "Simplify." Every time I read it I think of how complicated things have become in my life and how I need to learn how to say no and prioritize my time. It's so hard to do.
So, how do you declutter your life? What can you do to make your life simpler and less hectic?
