Clear out the Clutter!

Money Saving Mom (a blog I read occasionally) is having a Clear out the Clutter Challenge this week.

I thought about it for about 2.5 seconds. Then I took a look around and said yup that is just the thing to get my rear in gear.

I have been feeling a little sluggish lately. Tired and a little run down. I know it has a lot to do with our schedule which is partly my fault of getting overbooked and partly the fault of some (not his fault) little boys appointments here lately. (New molds made, double ear infection, virus, hearing aid malfunction, hearing tests and new molds to be fitted and left with... these are just from the last three weeks!)

So this week is a LITTLE less busy for us and I truly believe the other reason I have been feeling a little overwhelmed and run down is my home. It has gotten a little out of control between the appointments, the fun, the out of town guests, the holiday and well just everyday life.

So I will be trying to rid our lives of the clutter. The broken toys, the outgrown clothes (for Leanna anyway), packing up Hudson's old clothes for Nolan, taking the baby stuff to Once Upon a Child, going through our craft buckets, the top of the fridge the cupboard. Our home lacks storage so I don't really have the option of hanging on to everything. So I must truly love, need, want, use or wish for the children to have it for it to remain here :)

So stay tuned this week and if you want join in as I Clear the Clutter!

Go, Shay, Go!! Wishing I could join in on the fun. Can't wait to hear how it goes for you.
Praying both boys are better and that this week is calm and peaceful for you. Enjoy your time at home with the kids.
