This week at the Miller home, we’re working on seriously simplifying. I can’t tell you how fun of a project this has been and how rewarding it already is. I thought I’d jot down what I started with and how things are going.
The first thing I started with is purging our closets. Laundry was on the top of the list of things I hated, and things that took up the most amount of time. Also, my house can get to be a disaster, and what causes the most mess? Clothes! My children love to change their clothes throughout the day, and rather than picking that battle, I’ve decided to get proactive about the clothing situation.
I went through all our wardrobes and picked 2 weeks worth of our favorite outfits. My girls are pretty picky about what they wear. They always want to wear dresses, and each circle through the same few. That was easy. I picked their favorites that they would wear, purged the rest.
For me, I picked the outfits that made me feel the best, ones that I could pair together to mix and match different ways and got rid of everything else.
I’m talking, I filled our guest-room closet and our coat closet with my clothes alone. I kept about 13 shirts, 2 dresses and a few pairs of pants and skirts.
First week in and I can’t believe the difference in laundry and piles of clothes to be sorted through. I feel as if I’ve just solved the world’s problems!
Next is a time schedule.. can I keep it? Stay tuned!
