It's good to know others are doing some decluttering and organizing, too, and all the ideas and tips help, a lot. I was going to say, "misery loves company", but it feels so good to be doing this, I don't find it at all miserable!
I did get two Spider plants today and the living room already feels fresher and nicer. I love those. Each of them had tons of little baby plants on long stems. I cut them off and will probably give them to my daughter to make starts she might be able to sell at her craft fair booth. She does nature photos so it seems like plants would fit right in.
I am definitely celebrating this breath of fresh air being breathed into the house by paring down all that stuff that keeps staring at me from every surface and corner.
Oh, and I was going to say, something that is kind of spurring me on to keep at it is this: I tend to not open the drapes on the big windows in the living room, mainly because it puts a glare on the TV when I watch it
. Even though they are light in color, it makes for a gloomy room, so I am trying to open them every morning. I'm beginning to think it makes me feel better, or more energetic, to have them open. Has anyone experienced this?
