I’ve been away for a few days and a bit of space has allowed me to look at some of my habits which don’t work very well.
I was only able to take a small amount of stuff with me. This meant that I didn’t have to wade through mountains of stuff to find what I wanted, and things stayed much tidier. It is clear that as a family we just have too much stuff.
Second, because I was tired at the end of each day, I found myself getting ready for bed earlier. This gave me time to put clothes away, rather than just dropping them in a pile and not sorting them out and hanging them up.
In the morning, before I went out, I made sure I had time to tidy my room and make the bed. I washed up any cups. This meant I came back to a nice tidy room in perfect order.
The challenge now is to bring these new habits into my home life. I think I can do it if I can cut down the amount of stuff we have and set aside time to do a little bit of sorting out first and last thing.
What habits work for you in keeping your home tidy and uncluttered?
Until next time, Tawney x
