This is my 2013 mantra… I don’t typically make resolutions at the start of the new year, but this month I am feeling inspired to make some changes.
I don’t have a lot of specific plans, but I am hoping to apply these three words to all aspects of our family life: declutter, clean, simplify
I am starting with all things Lincoln-related. He may only be 7 months old, but it feels like he has already accumulated so much stuff! So, I am going through his toys and clothes, cleaning, organizing, packing up and maybe even donating a few things. Just in case there is a baby #2 I don’t want to get rid of too much, but there are some things that we simply do not need.
I hope to tackle a lot of areas in our home with this mentality… our shelves upstairs– overflowing with bedding, my closet– packed with far too many dresses and cardigans that I never wear, even some unpacked boxes out in the garage– filled with tchotkes and random home decor that I clearly am not using…
I started a new board on Pinterest, simply titled 2013 to keep me inspired. Here are some of the images I’ve found so far…
(Note: I do not actually have an all white home, but I love the look and the simplicity of it is very appealing to me.)
Any tips on how you keep your life decluttered? I would love to hear them.
In the mean time, I’m sure this little guy will definitely appreciate my new, keep it simple attitude 🙂
