In my previous update I mentioned possibly moving back home in January. I mean, I’m pretty sure it’s going to happen. For real this time! Meanwhile, I’ve read Year with No Clutter and The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and I am totally ready. I feel another purge-fest coming on! I plan to start with the items I’ve brought over to my parents’ home that I am cluttering it up with. We started in bins and suitcases, but as the months passed we have expanded, and sometimes exploded, all over the upstairs rooms, entryway, etc. I feel awful! But I will actually begin with some childhood belongings that should have been tossed long ago. Marie Kondo says I need to start with clothes, then books, papers, miscellaneous items, and finally sentimental goodies. I can do it!
Obviously sentimental items will be the hardest (hello, baby clothes), but my wardrobe is so different now from before I had Lila Sophia. I don’t want to say goodbye to parts of it, so really that might be the most difficult category for me to deal with. I feel like I am finding my style all over again.
How did you new moms do it? I read that tidying up will help with this type of situation. Fingers crossed.
I leave you with a few cute photos of my little family.
