Today I am refreshing a commitment to the space I inhabit: the Zen Apartment. When we originally moved in on a short-term lease, we crossed our fingers it would be extended & decided we would use those months to destash, unclutter, & refresh the ideals of our ‘stuff’.
& it worked. For a while. But life pops up & then all of a sudden you realize it will be two years in the fall & that you’re not quite content with the ‘stuff’ situation. Nothing happens overnight (not for me, a semi-recovering pack rat), but I know I feel better when I let my organization skills flourish. & for that to happen – well…there needs to be space!
I’m creating space for things that are more than just stuff. Belongings. Mementos. Events.
A few of my favorite places on the web to assist me in this:
- Unclutterer – tips on everything from closet space to finances
- Bneato – blog of a professional organizer from LA
- Zen Habits – organize your thought processes!
- Lifehacker – if you want to streamline something, chances are they have a tutorial for it.
What are your favorite resources to help the organization & de-cluttering process?
