In our somewhat small (under 1000 square feet) house we are constantly having to fight the clutter. Perhaps this is a challenge in all houses no matter the size, it just seems to consume our house wicked fast… if I skip a day of picking up then the clutter breeds overnight. As I often complain to my sister, it seems I spend the majority of my day shuffling objects from one place to another. And this seems like a poor way to live. So, I need solutions!!! I am considering a mandatory purge of 50% of the objects in our house. The purge along with pretty things to store the remaining objects could be my answer.
For the latter part of the solution I turned to Etsy, where all good things come from. Looking for fabric bins to put in the cubbies by our front door I stumbled upon Sewing Momma who makes fabulous bins in delicious fabrics. I asked her if she would make custom bins to fit our cubbies, she said yes, and a mere few weeks later the bins arrived at my door and slipped right into my cubbies. They make me happy.
And they contain about half of a percent of the clutter. Any ideas for the other 99.5%?
