Just a Wish

A goal without a plan is just a wish, as a wise man (I have no idea which one, but I'm sure he was very wise indeed) once said.
That is what I thought of yesterday when I wrote about nesting and not knowing where to start.
I wish my drawers and shelves were clean, but I have no plans as to how to get them that way.
It kept eating at me all day.
I kept thinking that none of this will get done if I don't do something, anything.
So now I have a plan!
It's a really simple plan.
It's not my own, it's what everyone does when they have a huge feat to accomplish.
My plan?
Slow and steady wins the race.
I hereby commit myself to going through at least one cupboard or drawer or closet each and every day.
See? Simple.
Even I can do that.
Last week I cleaned out the bathroom closet. I was amazed at how much stuff I pulled out of there.
Now I feel so good every time I open it.
Everything I need is right where I can find it.
All the stuff I don't need and never used is gone.
I don't have to hunt for 10 minutes to find a light bulb.
I want my whole house to be like that.
Watch out D.I., here I come!

Great plan! Especially to take.advantage of the next few months before you are too pregnant and then have a new baby.

I sat on the bed while my girls tried on clothes and we put outfits together for them. We tossed a small pile. It's so nice to have their clothes all organized for the season!

Yay! How exiting! It's been so nice getting rid of things around here and now I don't have to keep cleaning them up :-) I liked it so much that I find myself looking for more to toss now. I get exited when I find another thing to get rid of. Good luck! You should do something totally embarrassing like posting before and after pictures - but maybe you're not that desperate :-)
