It has been 6 years since my husband I bought our house and finally we are able to do some renovations! I am having my whole kitchen re vamped. However in order to do this we have had to reconfigure some other rooms. My kids now have to share a room. They are super excited about sharing and having a bunk bed. The 3rd room will become a spare/computer/toy room. I will even have new floors and a new lounge – it is all so very exciting.
However, little did I know how I much ‘stuff’ I had accumulated over these 6 years! I have kept so much junk. My friend started me on a project called Konmari and it is about letting go of items and objects that no longer bring joy and minimalizing what you have. I thought this would a great idea for me to start but I am so overwhelmed!
I have slowly been going through little things like toys, clothes and the kitchen…selling items, giving them for free and to charity. But the more I look around, the more I see and it just doesn’t seem to end. I have bought new items for my new kitchen and they are just sitting in boxes and waiting. Everything is on order and I just wish the next 3 weeks would happen now! Such an exciting time, but it is also frustrating me.
