Simplify to make less complex or complicated, to make plainer or easier...simplify 2015 brought some major changes in my life. Another grand child, an aging cat, the loss of my brother which had a huge impact on me. My health and the health of my Mom. All these things have overwhelmed me at times. Simplify is my word for 2016 I want to make my life simpler so I can enjoy it more. The first step is my home. It is cluttered and I am not able to keep it as clean as I would like because there is so much stuff in here. I've been working on downsizing for a few years, but this year will see a major change.
Staring with my dish closet. I am no longer doing tablescapes on a regular basis. I have collected so much stuff that I can't use this extra closet for anything else. Most of these items I haven't touched in two years!! So out they go.
Just look at it all! I am going to do a weekly post on my journey to simplify my life. I'm going to start with a huge purge of my dish closet.
These sets of flatware will be going to the thrift shop today. I enjoyed picking these sets up over the years at bargain prices, but I don't use them so out they go.
This box full also. Yes I had way too many but it was fun to have all the different colors when setting tables. Time to donate so someone can use these items and they can stop taking up space in my closet. I will be working on dishes this week and will have photos next Monday. Join me as I Simplify! Wishing you JOY, Linda
