I’ve been in major organizing mode around here. When we moved into this new house a couple of months ago, I did some organizing of things as we put things away. But it kind of takes living in place before you get a better idea of how to work with the space you got. So, over the last few weeks, I’ve been purging things. And boxing up things. And straightening things.
Now to do the same with Pinterest. I had over 2,500 pins. I had pinned recipes that I might make some day. I’ve pinned decoration ideas for bedrooms, bathrooms, kids’ rooms, kitchens. For rooms that I might have someday.
But someday has come. We aren’t moving any time soon – at least not for a decade (Jeff says not for 30 years, but we’ll see). So, it’s time to rid my pinterest pages of the ideas that don’t fit this house. I might love the idea of having a big huge gameroom, but that isn’t the space we have to work with. I might love the idea of a big walk in tub, but that wouldn’t fit in this house. I might love the idea of cooking everything from scratch, but, well, that just isn’t me. The fact that I pinned it months and months and months ago and haven’t ever made it is telling me that I probably won’t make it. Delete it. It’s just cluttering the things that I am still interested in. It overwhelms me.
I guess I’ll make that my New Year’s Resolution. Mostly because I can’t fail – I’ve already done some cleaning up!
