Cluttered Home, Cluttered Mind
Unfortunately, I am also a procrastinator. The two don’t go together well at all, and the piles show up anyway. And yes, it takes longer to sort and file the piles than it does to put them away in the first place.
That’s why these shelves of books in the office make me smile. It took several hours to sort, organize and store this collection of books. It’s by no means all of them (yes, there are many, many more.), but being able to see them in some resemblance of order does my heart good.
I don’t know if your mind reels at these piles the way mine did, but it was so overwhelming to be surrounded by disorganization. The time was well spent putting them in categories and putting bookmarks in the ones I’ve read. Now I can buy more books because I know what titles I already have. (Yes, now there is room for more!) I don’t have to be concerned any more about wasting money buying the same book a second time because I know what I have ... for the most part.
What area of your home would you love to clean and organize? What would it do for your mind and your heart if that area wasn’t cluttered?
