1. Project Life update. Amber has now joined Turquoise in the “sold out” club. So as of right now, there are no Project Life kits available for purchase on Amazon. For now. As I have said before, more are on the way. Should be in stock within the next couple of weeks.
2. Cute friends. Speaking of Project Life, some friends came over last night for a little “Project Life Par-tay”. It wasn’t really a party at all. I just used that as an excuse to buy Costco’s chocolate lover’s delight cake. And I most certainly did that. Back to my point. It was so fun to sit and put our books together, getting them all ready to fill. Here are a few of the cuties.
3. Side note. As I said yesterday, I’m doing digital Project Life. But last night I was putting together Jason & Kyra‘s book as a wedding gift (Kyra’s our niece & they’re getting married this weekend). They are already taking their POTDs, starting with the New Year. How cool is that? Seriously – can you imagine having an album with a picture every day of the first year of your marriage?
4. Digital questions. Thanks for your feedback & questions about Digital Project Life. We’re working on FAQs to share soon.
5. De-cluttering. This is the real reason for today’s blog post. De-cluttering is on my brain and being that resolutions are floating around so much right now, I’d be willing to bet I’m not alone here. Raise your hand if you have some goals related to de-cluttering.
So I thought it’d be fun to have you guys chime in on this topic. What’s ONE thing you have already de-cluttered this year … OR … one thing you plan to de-clutter in the near future?
Magazines & catalogs. I’ve had this growing stack for a few months. I’ve been letting them pile up thinking, I’ll get to that as soon as I’m not so busy and blah, blah, blah. I’m not a catalog shopper. Nor do I read magazines very much at all. I just enjoy flipping through for inspiration or whatever. But seriously — am I really going to prioritize going through a stack of magazines when I have so much else to do?
Um. No. The answer is no.
So buh-bye to this whole stack yesterday. Felt sooo good to let go (figuratively & literally) and drop them in the recycle bin.
One more example. My friend Megan (shown on the far right in that top picture) has had a big problem called laundry. Can you relate? With 7 people in their family, she always feels like she’s drowning in clothes. The solution: For each child, she is keeping out 5 school uniforms, 5 casual outfits, church clothes, a couple outfits for lounging & sports, a few pajamas and … that’s it. Everything else went into storage bins and under beds. When & if the kids want to rotate clothes, they can swtich them out (maybe once-a-month-ish?).
So — what about you? Name one thing you’re de-cluttering. Maybe we’ll all catch the bug.
