Let’s kick off a week of fine tuning the systems in our home! Keep reading to see the schedule, and let’s do this together.
What does The Year of EVOLVE mean to us? It means embracing growth – pleasant or otherwise. It means looking a problem in the face and asking ourselves how to solve it. It means: pushing ourselves creatively and choosing the choice that makes us the happiest. And in the context of today’s blog post, it means fine tuning our home within an inch of its life. I fully believe that a well tuned and curated home has the power to make my day-to-day run smoothly, and in turn, boosting my happiness.
The catch? Fine tuning a home doesn’t happen once, and then you’re done. Rather, a fine tuned home is maintained with daily habits, rituals and practice. And sometimes – in our case, a couple of times a year – a home needs a reset. To me, a home reset is assessing what’s working for you, and what’s not. Which brings me to…
Let’s Get Organized!
January is a natural time of year where many of us catch the organizational bug, and that includes me! To keep this from feeling overwhelming, I focus on one task a day (or every few days), knowing that things may get much messier before they get better. That’s okay! As Scott likes to remind me: You need to break a few eggs to make an omelette.
This year, I thought it would be fun to challenge myself to organize with you! Not only will this hold me more accountable, but my hope is that we can make strides together, with one new task a day, starting this coming Monday. Here’s how I’m breaking it down:
Organize with Me
Kick-Off Starts Monday
Starting Monday, I’ll Story my real-time process of cleaning out the bedroom closets and share with you the things I do to make it count. It may not always be easy, but it will be impactful. Tuesday, we’ll go through the bathroom medicine closet, Wednesday I’ll open up every cabinet in the kitchen, and so on. Without a doubt, this reset is reminiscent of the Konmari method, because it works. There are systems in place from my first round of Konmari (5, 6 years ago?) that are still going strong, but with everything, they need nurturing to keep nourishing us.
