Project: Simplify: I’m doing it!Posted: March 7, 2011
This is just the kind of thing I need to stay motivated and inspired! There is something very motivating to me about doing a project alongside someone else. I always work better that way!
So, even though I’m really working on my own, knowing there are bunches of other ladies all over the world doing the same thing really helps me! And there’s an accountability part with before and after pictures!
The first thing she challenged us to do was to develop a family purpose statement. It totally makes sense to me that my home should follow along with our family’s priorities and goals. We may want to flesh it out a bit more, but here is what we are starting with:
As a family we will seek to glorify God by enjoying Him through our thoughts, words, and actions.
And I think my five reasons for simplifying actually work along with this. That makes me happy! 🙂
Sooooo Tsh just announced today that this week’s project is working on our wardrobes/closets. I was really really REALLY hoping it would be something else! My closet area was one place that I really wasn’t sure I could handle posting a picture of. It’s scary. For real.
It’s one of the places I usually (maybe that should be “always”) put off because most people never see it.
But I’m going to do it !
Here are 2 before pictures for today:
OK then! Off I go! I think you have a pretty good idea of what I’m in for!
Are you joining me in Project: Simplify? Or are you working on decluttering another area of your home?
