Lately I have found myself intrigued with the idea of simplistic living, and because of it I have began a week long process of de-cluttering and re-organizing my home and life. The first on my list? My desk.
Why? Because this is where the most cluttered parts of my life stem from. My desk drawer was an absolute nightmare. It was filled with random papers, recipts, old checks, to-do lists from over a year ago, chords to electronics that I have apparently lost, and a clutter of batteries. It’s honestly emberassing how disasterous it was. But after an hour or two of going through each and every item in that drawer, it now has a whole new (and neat) look. Next on my list is to get actual drawer organizers so I can put everything in a specific and purposeful place. I can’t wait to show you all pictures of it when I am done.
But, because I am a thrifty shop-aholic (I get it from my mom), I can’t just walk out ot TJ Maxx without a few goodies. While trying to stay consistent with my more organized lifetsyle, I decided to pick up more intentional pieces, such as: a journal to write out my thoughts, a list to write out my daily to-do’s where I can see them in plain sight, a cute little “mom boss” name plate to keep me motivated, and some delicious coconut cookies (Aspen approved).
Next on my organizational list is all of our closets, and then my coffee bar. And hopefully soon I will have a pretty, white toy organizer for Aspen’s books and toys. Decluttering is something I try to do at least once a year, but I have a difficult time maintaining it. If you have any tips and tricks with keeping an organized home while raising a toddler, please comment and let me know!
