You may remember I wrote a post about Spring time being time to declutter. Yes?
some space even!
But going through stuff that I didn't want to get rid of and seeing what surplus of stuff I had acquired
got me thinking. Why did I have so much wool unused, so many books unread,
recipes unmade, patterns not knitted, fabric not sewn? I mean this pattern of surplus even extended to my pantry. I have sooo much stuff. Which would be great if I were planning on moving underground
for a good decade. But with no plans in the immediate future to go underground, I needed work this one out.
Because I just keep on buying before I RUN OUT! Der!
So enter Operation "Make Do"
So I am using up old wool to make a new throw and I am reading books
that have been laying around forever.
We are currently eating out of the pantry.
I have started making Christmas gifts from the stash.
I am using things up.
When I finish.
I will start afresh.
Form new habits.
Enjoy new space and order.
It will feel fresh and new.
I have also been baking like mad too!
Banana bread instead of bought muesli bars have been most welcomed
by the crew!
