Minimalism: January Wrap Up and February Goals
January Wrap Up
Focus Area: Office/Guest Room/Craft Room
I wasn't able to go through any office stuff, but did go through all of my craft supplies. I have several grocery bags of craft items that I am getting rid of. Hooray for me!
I reorganized the room.
I know that this might not look like much to you, but believe me...this is a HUGE improvement.
Habit Former: Buy Less.
I certainly wasn't perfect, but I did work hard to keep better lists and thought more carefully about purchasing items not on them. I need a better way to keep track of my lists. I don't have a smartphone, but need a way to have my list from the kitchen be in my purse at the same time. I haven't quite figured this out, yet.
Also, shop free week was a success and I actually enjoyed it!
Focus Area: Baby's Room
Baby is having a birthday this month, which means presents. So, I need to go through his things, store anything he isn't using anymore and organize his room.
Habit Former: Be more intentional about Baby's play time and what I buy him.
I tend to see things that look awesome, and if Baby seems to like them (or I envision that he would), I buy them, whether it would enrich his playtime, wardrobe, or life...or not. I need to remember that he really doesn't need that much, and that I shouldn't just buy every great looking baby thing out there....cause there are a lot of great looking baby things.
