It's time to simplify (or perhaps, let go) in order to create the space you really want (simplifying works for me!)
I am beginning to have craft supplies and homeschooling "stuff" everywhere - it's eating up my home. I keep dreaming that I will have a play/homeschool room, so I continue to not have permanent, easy access storage for my supplies. It's time for this mama to live in reality!
Do you have "things" that need a home, but you are reluctant to let go of other "things" or space to create something more realistic?
Example: I have a bookshelf in my dining room filled with, you guessed it, books! However, the space would be better used at this point if I gave up two shelves of my beloved books to keep play/craft/homeschool supplies. I don't want to move my books - there like my trophies, my babies, my...heck, I don't know, I just really don't want to move them to the basement (or part with some)! I have come to realize that in order to simplify my and my family's life, I must make the necessary changes in order to accommodate our current lives. Alas, the books shall go (sniff sniff).
Today, think about a space that could be better utilized or simplified to fit your family's needs for this season of your lives. Give in, let go, and enjoy the peace that comes from simplicity.
