I am really tired of the constant uproar in my life, so I need to devise a plan that will help me get out of this funk, both spiritually and physically. In years past (but not recent) I used to take the month of August and systematically go through my house, room by room and drawer by drawer. I would throw out and donate, really deep clean. This helped keep the place more organized and easier to take care of throughout the year. Because we have so much going on right now in the house, with everything torn up and stuff piled every where I have really noticed the junk and muck.
Remember the challenges that Carla had at the beginning of the year, well I am going to start a challenge the beginning of August. Who wants to join me? I am going to start with my front room and every drawer and closet and cubby hole. This room is not used much, but as I am a stuffer, the closet and drawers are sure to be full of crap! I am going to systematically go through this dungeon and by the time the studio starts, it will sparkle! Anyone up for the challenge? Complete with before and after pictures.
Besides getting a really clean and decluttered environment I will feel more in control, like I am actually doing something to make my life better besides having disasters right and left. I realize that financial goals are backward but I am not going to dwell on this and will face the new numbers in September. I can do this (like I have any choice):)
So here is to a cleaner house and a better environment. Less clutter, less stress. More free time to concentrate on getting out of debt. More free time to develop a positive attitude and a renewed debt payoff strategy.
Have a great and productive day!
