If you know me well you know that clutter has owned me for a long time. If you don’t know me well, clutter has owned me for a long time. I say it has owned me because my life has been dictated by it, planned around it, and lost in it. Granted good progress has been made. The piles are shrinking. The boxes are minimal and I can even use my desk from time to time.
Currently I am reading Clutter Free by Kathi Lipp. Motivation collects as I read each page. Could it be possible to live clutter free? Marcia Ramsland, the Organizer Pro has been very instrumental in helping me find a more organized way to live, yet I still haven’t conquered the clutter. This month Kathi Lipp asked me to join with her and numerous others to launch her new book, Clutter Free. I couldn’t refuse!
Five chapters in and I see clear space in my mind. I see my creative sanctuary (my office) becoming a reality. It will be a place of peace. Clutter definitely costs me peace of mind. Here is a quote from the book that really hits home for me.
“God knows our tendency to fill our lives with stuff instead of what matters…But God is clear that when we surround ourselves with less stuff, we can have more of the things that matter: his presence, peace, contentment, and joy.”
Would you be willing to come along with me and be clutter free? Even if it is just one room or closet in your home that needs help? We have a 21-day Challenge going on at http://www.kathilipp.com/clutter-free-21-day-challenge
My list is at 235. Two hundred and thirty-five items gone from my house! Whoopee!
AND would you like to win her book in my contest? Send me photos of your before and after of a drawer or your three boxes – one for donating, one for throwing away, and one for needs to go to another area in the house with items in them. Count your items that are going out of your house. Who will have the most? I will pick a winner by Sunday, January 4th.
