To Simplify….

(Journal post 5/300)

We have been talking much at our house lately about getting rid of the clutter. For us, it’s a really difficult task.

So, when this came across today, I just had to share. It’s certainly true for Kerry and I at out house. Personally, I think we’ve seen improvement as the girls have gotten older. But, we still have a ways to go like other things we try to master.

This weekend will be our first big stab at de-cluttering. I think we will figure out a way to have fun and get it done. Much patience required. 😉

I think this is easily relates to life as well. How can we simplify our life? What do we do with our white space as Christy Wright points out in this awesome post. (An aside: moms, I think, would find some awesome stuff on Christy’s site. Browse after you read the link and then come back.)

I hope to reflect a little on my white space this weekend. But, I want your help. How do you de-clutter? Personally and with your ‘stuff.’ What are some tricks that have made life more simple for you?

Short and sweet today. Would love to hear responses here and in Facebook. And, maybe a little progress report will be available soon!
