Things around the home that didn't bother us over the winter months, like piles of shoes and boots in the closet and the front door, start to get under our skin.
So we spring into action.
Typical Scenes Across the Country...
With hands on our hips, crookedly we stand in the foyer evaluating our winter clutter, thinking ... 'how did I stand this for so long' !
And before we know it, the itch to organize turns into a full blown rash and we're looking around the house trying to reshuffle pieces of furniture, repurpose dressers, and re-do closets.
Freeing ourselves of the unnecessary, we start with the basics ... we bag'em and tag'em.
We only mean to clean the house, but our soul gets spit and polished too.
We don't plan for this to happen, in fact we never do. But year after year, without fail, we feel lighter.
Closets Come First...
We've jammed our closets with extra sweaters, bulky coats, mitts, hats, boots, and too many pairs of shoes. It's not right.
We know it's not right. Guilty.
But, during the holiday season we really did have bigger fish to fry ... Like cozying up to a warm fire. Overflowing closets somehow made the fire feel better. It's winter ... we're not all there. There's a name for our condition: Cabin Feveritis.
But the frequent appearance of the sun along with the disappearing biting cold begins to wake us from our tolerant coma and we're ready to make tough choices ... But where do we start? ....
We figure it out.
To clean our soul, we start with soles.
The stinky invaders come first.
Ahhhh, we've lightened up just thinking about it ....
Sorted shoes; who'da'thunk that all it took was 'sorted shoes'?
All this time we thought life was complicated. Sole ... Soul? Well my gawd, life's greatest mystery has been solved.
Moral of the story - clean your closets, organize your soles, and the future is yours! ... Not really, but at least your closets will look great while your soul floats.
