I am fascinated by organized people. I want to be someone who is organized and maybe someone who has a clean house. Since cleaning out my closet last week and re-organizing a few cupboards. I have started reading more and more organizing blogs.
The pictures are so beautiful and neat. I love all the neat baskets and clean spaces. I have always enjoyed clutter and feel that it is also a part of who I am. But now I am wondering if that is really true? Could I be one of those people who has a spot for everything?
As I am typing and thinking about what I want my house and life to be like. The clutter doesn't really bother me but it what is bothersome is that it doesn't just stop at too many nicknacks. I can handle nicknacks, but what bugs me and eventually overwhelms me is the amount of stuff that just becomes a huge mess.
Mess is what overwhems me and weighs me down. It also exhausts me and I get to the point where having people over is stressful and I don't invite people over. I love having people over and it is a shame that I let a messy house take that away.
I am going to try and follow the steps on I'm an Organizing Junkie each week and from reading Shannon's blog and a few others....I am going to attempt to set up a House book. With routines and schedules and lists...Oh My! Now I must admit I am excellent at making all that stuff up and I love it. The hard part is sticking to it.
