Done being a STUFFER!

Catherine is home sick with a cold and Sammy is sleeping.  With the other two kids at school....this is one quiet day!  I have been working on de-cluttering my life, getting ready for a move in a few months.  Wow....it is amazing how many things we have collected over the seven years we have been living in this house.  I never considered myself a hoarder.....in fact I LOVE to get RID of STUFF.  It somehow makes me feel less of a weight on my shoulders.  

With that being said my husband and children tease me a lot about being two things.....
I throw away too many things  (often important documents, papers, warranties etc.) and 
I am a "STUFFER"!  

Yes I must admit.  I hate to have to admit.
I don't like to have too many things out.....and without much time, I just stuff them away in random drawers and nooks and corners.  I am what I like to call a "randomly organized" person.  I have an order to my chaos....but no one in their right mind could figure it out except ME:)  I may be alone in this....but....

My point in analyzing my cleaning/organizing capabilities.  They are reflective of how I deal with things in general.  I think for many people the way they organize and clean is reflective of their personality.  

For example......I am good at avoiding little things that bother me in my life.  I can just tuck away problems in the corner of my mind.  I can kind of block out the bad as long as I, in my own mind, am appearing to be calm and somewhat put together.  I don't carry and hold a lot of grudges.  I can let many things just roll off my shoulders and let it go.  However, I am also a stuffer.  If something does bother me....I simply put it off, and tuck it away.  I am good at avoiding.  The problem lies....because I can only stuff for so long.  At the end of a long period of time I have often stuffed away too much!  

My point for this entry.  This is my year to clean out and organize all my little STUFFs.  I am cleaning it out and getting rid. 

This is my year to UN STUFF!  I am going to get organized with the little things physically and emotionally.  How I am going to do that?  Well that is a bit more tricky  First of all recognizing.....secondly......I am not quite sure.  Haven't gotten to that point yet.  I will keep posted on that.  For starters though I did find this....
on pinterest......
