The Junk Drawer

Hello all! How’s it going out there?

Last week I shared some of the tips (HERE) that have helped me in my quest to tackle clutter. One of the tips was to clear off flat surfaces, with a quick-fix option being to just put everything that didn’t belong on the counter/table/floor into a box and to shove the box into a closet. We are probably all more familiar with this concept as it exists in the form of a junk drawer, or sometimes… a junk room. Today I wanted to explore this idea and take a look at the pros and cons of the junk drawer.

Living With Less // Decluttering

Here we are again! Another Wednesday!

Confession: I don’t like clutter very much, but I’m not a very motivated declutterer! This poses a big dilemma. So one of my Living With Less quests this year is to really dive in and declutter my spaces. 

To me, “clutter” is all the stuff that accumulates around you. Stuff that doesn’t have a proper home, or just never got put back where it belongs (or junk mail, ha!). Clutter isn’t necessarily what resides in the recesses of your closets. Because it’s not right in front of you, “cluttering” your vision and your mind. So that makes decluttering the act of putting the stuff away, throwing out the garbage, shredding/recycling the junk mail!

Monday Musings // 6.15.2020

Hello friends, it’s Monday again!

Work was busy last week. And as I’ve said before, I am grateful for that. Though my appreciation is more apparent after the week is over, once I’m at a safe distance from it thanks to the buffer of the weekend. Not so much in the midst of stress-induced heart palpitations though…and now it’s time for it to all start again (well, hopefully not the palpitations again)!

Using Mini Habits

Hello Friends, Hump Day is here yet again…how are you?

I’m hanging in there. Hope you are too.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t have anything planned in my editorial calendar for this week’s post. In fact, I had this topic scheduled for a post in late July. But I’ve decided to introduce it now and then check in later (#accountability).

Monday Musings // 6.1.2020

Happy June 1st!

And Happy 100 Day Challenge Day (that’s a thing, and it’s today)!

Last week was not only a 4-day work week because of the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, but it was also my first week back to doing an alternating office/WFH/office/WFH schedule at work. It seemed like the longest short week ever! I am grateful though that this was my biggest concern.

A 100 Day Challenge

Hello, hello!

Today I am excited (and a little nervous #accountability) to announce my first ever 100 Day Challenge! I don’t think I’ve mentioned the concept of a 100 Day Challenge here on the blog before (or anywhere actually). I heard about it on A Beautiful Mess, first on their blog (HERE) and then on their podcast. The idea is to pick a few goals to really focus on for 100 days. They can be big projects to accomplish, or small habits to hone, or anything in between really.
