Seasonal Order

April 26, 2014

in the generous life

I just cleaned out my coat closet.

I really don’t think we need seven hats, even in a rough winter (where do they come from?)

I asked Paul which items he actually uses and those we saved (for next year). I put a few items that we routinely use back in and now the closet is all tidy and items are easy to find and therefore usable. 

I love the change in seasons because it pushes me to clean and reorganize. I find lost items, remove items we don’t need anymore and generally tidy up our home. This typically creates a sense of calm because there are fewer items to mess with and we know where most things are (we don’t fuss and waste time looking for the keys or the paprika or the small trowel).

As you walk into the next season (whatever that is for you), why not take the time to go through different areas of your home.

Pull everything out.
Reduce/Simplify.
Pack away out of season items/Label.
Bring in current season items.
Organize and put away.
Enjoy the calm.

Be sure to talk through seasonal needs with your sweetie as you go so that your home works for him too.

Anyone who has ever cleaned out a closet and taken stuff to Goodwill knows how liberating it is. You feel lighter, your mind feels clearer.  Cecile Andrews

I love the calm, organized feeling these kinds of small tasks create! I just need to take the time to do them more often.
