It must be the cold weather approaching or the seasons changing.
I am full nesting and cleaning mode once again.
Spurred on by a recent blog post on magazines from Gail, I got to thinking.
I used to love magazine shopping and my home reflects that.
I have drawers and cabinets full of my favorite magazines that they no longer make.
Holding on to these for years some date back to moving out here, 2003. That means I have moved with these magazines 3 times until buying our home. eeek, ridiculous!I think I held on to them thinking I could research looks for my dream home decor. So last night I sat and thought, our house is nothing like the ones in my old favorite magazines there is no reason to keeping holding out on a dream for a farm cottage...so I ripped out the inspiration pages that I just couldn't part with and the rest are going to the recycling bin.
These pictures are only half of the magazines that I still need to go thru. But notice the pilesThe thin stack to the left is what I am keeping and filing away.The other just emptied the drawers in my antique dresser.
Now I will have room for storing blankets and the other necessities for winter.
What have you been holding onto that really needs to go?
I feel so much better that this has been addressed.
