Thoughts on Clutter & Joining the 2018 Summer 5% Challenge
Sunday, May 27, 2018
First Spark Friends please forgive me for the number of times I will use the words "move" and "new home" over the next few weeks as that is what is foremost on my mind right now.
We pared down a lot when we moved out of our house last Nov. (replacing it due to hurricane damage) but while our new home is the same square footage it won't have the additional enclosed porches of our old home. One of the things I looked for in our new home was efficient storage space. (My family was probably tired of all of my talk about closet space - several models were rejected because of this!)
I stumbled across an article yesterday titled "The Cluttered Lives of Middle-Class Americans" and found it thought provoking and pertinent to my circumstances. I finally found time to watch the video and found (pardon the pun) it gave much food for thought so I thought I'd share the link in today's blog.
One thing that has kept me going through this difficult period in my life is Spark and particularly the 5% Challenges.
