On Friday night I went into my kitchen to do some regular chores and ended up completely emptying all of the drawers and some of the cabinets. At 9PM on a Friday night I was in my kitchen with piles of old coupons strewn across the counters and dishes everywhere. I even scrubbed and vacuumed the drawers. I would venture to call Nate and I hoarders when it comes to coupons and sale flyers but I’ll stick with a pretty generalized term that covers all of our hoarding tendencies- lazy. If I’m being honest, most things accumulate because HEY we might need this sometime and also this drawer is closer to me than the trash can. There was one drawer that had 4 decks of cards in it. I can’t even tell you that last flipping time I’ve played a card game. And is the kitchen really the place to store 4 decks of cards? YOU SEE?
We’ve been in our house for three years now and I still feel like a lot of our things don’t have a designated place. Our decor is still fairly lacking. The effort just hasn’t been put in. Nate and I have discussed the possibility that the home we’re in now may not be where we want to stay. It’s put my thoughts on wanting to organize, decorate, and make this place exactly what we want into overdrive. Either that, or we move.. but we have to figure it because I’m ready to Pinterest up my life and get organized.
Do you ever get restless in your space and go on sudden cleaning/reorganizing sprees for hours on end? Just me?
