I don't have time to declutter today.
I have to work. Shop for school supplies. Do assignments. And somewhere in there be a mum.
Except here's the thing. I want to reach this goal of a peaceful uncluttered home. And can't and don't have time are pretty poor excuses.
So this is what you can do if you have six minutes. Literally six minutes.
Get rid of the clutter you just don't see, that you just live with and accept. I mean the fridge. We pile stuff on there. Magnets and school notes and bills and STUFF.
(I hadn't realised how bad it was!!!!)
In six minutes it is gone.
Remove leapfrog toy and ALL THOSE LETTER magnets and put in a box with Miss E's toys. After all she is reading already and barely uses it. Make note in diary to donate in 6mths when she will be reading longer words than this game uses.
Remove rest of contents from fridge. File paperwork in paperwork system (as discussed yesterday). Throw trash in trash
Clean fridge (just the surface. This is a QUICK clean. Deep cleaning is for another day.
Replace what you NEED on the fridge. Just what you NEED.
Decide to throw magnets in bin. They just enable clutter. You have a system for paperwork and a noticeboard in the kitchen. Why does stuff have to go on the fridge???
Utilise really cool magnetic storage box to store the essentials. Pens. Scissors. Timer. (not shown as in use) I got mine from deals direct - link is here http://www.dealsdirect.com.au/p/magnetic-laundry-storage-bin/
