|Not my home|
I'm experiencing mini anxiety attacks because... I can't find my favourite lipstick... or too many receipts for goods which I no longer own are preventing me from finding the receipt for a dis-functioning steamer which I only bought 8 months ago. It's the little things, you know?
What scares me the most is that it's tax time just around the corner and my papers are spread across two rooms, three boxes and four draws. I'm actually expecting a refund, so one would think I would be excited about it hence organised, but I'm not.
I think that I am suffering from declutterer's block.
I have one success story to write about which has actually spurred me on a bit. The piles of magazines that my Mother finally convinced me to take away months ago, remained where I put them (under the lamp table) for months on end until yesterday. I am happy to report that as I write this post the last lot of my old magazines have been sorted through and are now in the recycling bin. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders (and from underneath my lamp table).
This blog was a great focusing tool for me when I culled my wardrobe and even though I am a relatively busy person (...although others seem to cram a lot more in, so maybe I'm just lazy?), I'm thinking why not also blog about de-cluttering, organising and beautifying my home?
I know it's been done before... but any interest? I promise embarrassing before and after photographs.
