By now, I’m sure many of you are familiar with Annie of Lovely Things. She is an amazing photographer, sweetheart of a girl, and terrific blogger. One day, about two weeks ago, I was fighting off the blahs and hoping to get a little organization going, but not really wanting to undertake a whole big thing. I thought about doing the whole 30 bags in 30 days thing, but was completely unmotivated. Then I checked in at Annie’s blog, where she made the suggestion of listing every single drawer, closet and cupboard in your house, and checking them off one by one. So if you had the time and desire, you could do a lot, but if you only had a few minutes, you could knock off a shelf or drawer and check it off. And I LOVE checking off lists!
I have to say, I am thrilled with the results. About 8 bags have gone out in just a few days, to be donated, given away (about 100 books are out of here!) or tossed. It feels great to get going and it’s such an easy, no pressure way to get it done. I even found a new and better way to use a space I had used the same way for fifteen years! Be sure to check out Annie’s blog for lots of great ideas, pretty places, and inspiration.
