Getting my house in order...
It's time for spring cleaning and my house is out of control. Boxes, books, storage containers... I have some serious cleaning to do and I am so angry that I allowed my house and my life to become so cluttered. And as i am attempting to clear space, I realize the root cause of my inability to maintain an uncluttered home.
Growing up poor, I think I have an unconscious need to hold on to everything. I fear that I am one step away from being a hoarder.
I have stacks and stacks of lessons and teaching materials to file away. My study is littered with magazines and comic books. My spare bedrooms are full of boxes and junk that I need to throw away.
I am going to start the sorting tonight. My plan is to empty three boxes per day. The bulk of my trash will be thrown away.
My garage is fairly clean. I think I will use excess space to store boxes there. If only cleaning out the other clutter in my life was this simple...
