Iâ€™m currently blogging on my subwoofer. Weâ€™re slowly selling off all of our furniture. In fact, we might be losing our couch at 2:30!
Weâ€™re in serious packing mode. Although we donâ€™t move until next Sunday, we want to be CALM and RELAXED next week. Weâ€™re trying to get most of it done today and tomorrow!
My office is in shambles!
(That giant naked doll on the table is an acupuncture model, if youâ€™re wondering!)
One tidbit I read on Young House Love (an awesome blog, by the way) is that you donâ€™t have to keep all your memorabiliaâ€¦ you can take pictures of your stuff, especially things that take up a bunch of space. And then you save the picture!
Picture of my dried wedding flowers + arbor decorations:
I could throw them away without feeling overly guilty after taking that picture!
Mid-packing GREEN MONSTER!
The tasty mix contained:
- 1 cup rice milk
- 2 cups raw spinach
- 1 banana
- 1.5 tablespoons Vega Shake and Go
BEER is required for packing! This is a fact. I had a pint of Shock Top, a Belgian White that Iâ€™ve been enjoying a lot lately.
Eats included a Morningstar Black Bean burger with arugula, sundried tomato, and mustard.
Plus broccoli and melon:
On the packing/hoarding note, Iâ€™ve been doing a lot of research on how to pare down my junk and organize my life. The best rule Iâ€™ve heard so far is to get rid of anything you havenâ€™t worn in a year. Iâ€™m also trying to get rid of multiples of the same thing â€“ for example, I kept old agendas from college, so I tossed 3 and kept 1.
Are you organized? Or do you tend to keep everything? Any excellent tips for cleaning up messes and organizing your life?
