Lost In Space

We all know where things live in our house. At least most of them. We have set routines and keep items in convenient places. Well, right now I just keep losing things. In the process of clearing out and de-cluttering things get moved and the place some things did live just aren't there anymore.

Saturday we went from three bureaus to three drawers in one bureau. Sewing? Not me. I was tackling the master bedroom. I still have the closet left to clear out. Everything has to be picked up and a decision made as to its usefulness. Then either tossed or packed. If it is something we use frequently it has to be placed in a piece of furniture that we are taking with us. All other things have to be packed for at least 6 months storage. One main question I keep asking is:

"Do I Really Want To Unpack this?"

I am behind in my email, I am behind in my blogging, I am behind in so many areas but I keep reminding myself that when this is all done I will have a few months to catch up on that kind of thing......

The painter will be coming soon and when he does I will have one more room to mark off my list.

Now to work on the next section of the cellar.


  1. Suze, I can feel your pain, as I never enjoy packing or unpacking... :P

    On the shows I remember them saying ask yourself 3 questions:
    1 - Do I LOVE it?
    2 - Do I USE it?
    3 - Can it make me money?

    if not, trash it. I hope over the summer to tackle my closet and totally purge everything out, paint, hang new organizer system, and then only put back in what I actually enjoy wearing and looks nice on me.

    I know exactly how you feel. Recently when I was packing up my house I ended up packing a cord that hooks up the sound on my computer. I was so worried that I had ruined our computer because I couldn't get any sound. Thankfully my husband new exactly what I had done and helped me fix the problem.


Thank you for your comment.......
