I am super excited about this part of my life. We are finally doing things to the house to empty it.
Yes you heard me correctly. My living room is beginning to look like a ghost town. It is so empty I swear I can almost hear my voice echo in it when I walk into it. The room I thought was small for a living room now looks super big.
Some may question why we put so little in it, but the answer is simple. Room to think without clutter. Room to breathe. And finally less stuff to clean from week to week.
We are also finishing the closet in our bedroom. A job that has been ignored for the better part of 4 years (where does time go).
You just get tapped out or tired or just burnt out of doing things in your home.
I’m hoping we can pace ourselves here because I want stuff to get done, but I don’t want to go overboard.
The difference than the other times we started this would be that we had tons of debt and would spend thousands to start a project that sometimes did not get finished. And somehow the clutter as well as the bills kept climbing.
This time, we are using materials we can find and try to spend the least without compromising the clean cut look of things, but we are keeping in mind that less is more. Less spent, less junk. Keeping both are space and money and staying debt free.
People clean out spaces only to fill them back up with crap. This time we are cleaning them and trying to put a lot less back.
The greatest thing about all of this is you know that feeling you get when you have brand new shelves and pristine white walls, how just clean and fresh it feels. By not overfilling with stuff, you can get to keep that feeling all the time!!
Feels great! I highly recommend it.
