In my house, I have numerous “dark corners”, where piles of “stuff” have accumulated.
There are a number of reasons for this. One is we just don’t have enough “places” for all our “stuff”. Another is my children bring me “important” stuff into my bedroom, when I’m busy and don’t have time to deal with it.
With this move, I have the opportunity to go through all these “Dark corners”; and sort, relocate , purge, chuck, and finally pack up these spaces.
It is my hope that at the smaller new place, I will be a bit more intentionally organized, and less busy. If I can stay on top of the little things, like keeping the kids’ scrapbooks current, then many of the piles won’t ever even happen. I am also a realist though. I know I can’t eliminate ALL of my piles, but some would be a start.
Also, I am learning to hold much looser to my “stuff”. Hopefully I won’t have SO much to relocate next time!
I am a servant though. I keep many things so that I can lend them out to others, or use them to serve others. So, part of my solution will be finding better storage solutions. 🙂
