Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it’s not all mixed up. -Winnie-the-Pooh / A.A. Milne
Spring is coming (yeah!) and with it comes an opportunity to un-mix things. Spring is a time to start fresh, to start anew. So why not take the most mixed-up thing in your home and un-mix it.
You can take a mixed up mess like this:
and start fresh (ctrl+alt+delete). It can be like moving into a new home, but without the hassle of moving.
While organizing this drawer I…
- Put things where they really belonged (not in this drawer)
- Got rid of duplicates (I only need one good peeler – not one good one and one crappy one)
- Took account of what I have
- Spent time with my daughter who enjoys organizing things
Organizing my silverware drawer took all of 20 minutes, so why didn’t I do this sooner?
Good question. Ah, I was waiting for inspiration? (she says sheepishly)
What will you un-mix today?
