On Saturday I decided it was time to do some serious purging. I had been thinking about it for awhile and just finally was in the right frame of mind to actually do it. I started with my closet and got rid of a ton of clothes. Over the last few years doing therapy and such I have been feeling like I understand myself so much more than I ever have. One of the things I now know more about myself is my style, so I cleaned out a lot of clothes and kept only the clothes that make me feel more like me.
After my closet I moved to our storage room. I cleaned up some piles of things that were getting put in there without actual spots to put them (everything has a home and these items need a home). Then I focused specifically on my Shelf Reliance rolling food storage shelves. I've been wanting to work on it for quite awhile. I had been testing different food storage companies and settled on Thrive Life (you can check it out at renaemcbarron.thrivelife.com). I chose what items I wanted in #10 cans to go on the big shelves and what I wanted to get in the pantry size to go on the smaller shelves. It really does help to have a plan.
I know that I'm a little crazy when it comes to organizing, it just makes me happy and energizes me, but I have to say I was so tired and sore by the time I was done! But I feel really good about it. I feel like I'm leaving some old stuff behind me and moving forward in many ways. I have a few more things on my list of things to get rid of which I will load up in my car this week and haul away and I couldn't be more excited about it!
