Confessions of a Struggling Housekeeper

Stuff, stuff everywhere
on the floor and on the chair

comes through the door but rarely leaves
this is one of my pet peeves

clutter makes it hard to think
but at least it does not stink

abundantly outfitted for "just in case"
but we surely need some space

we are blessed, that's for sure
all our needs are met, and more!

oh, to close the cupboard with ease
that would make me feel so free

we do not need a bigger house,
but there is much we could do without

how many clothes can we really wear?
how many toys can for we care?
how many books?
how many pots?
how many towels?
how many gloves?

I want a house not packed with stuff, but a home filled with love.

I wrote this little bit to introduce:
Resolution #1 (not because it is necessarily the most important, though): Simplify our household and its processes and possessions to make space for what really matters!

Oh, I so know what you are talking about!

I'm so with you on your resolution...although I call them goals so I'll actually stick with them;)

I'm curious to hear how your holidays went. We're still in Florida, enjoying the temps...sigh.

I LOVE it! AMEN SISTER! I pray you can stick with your goals for this year and de-clutter!
