I am not an organized person, however I am getting better and learning how to make better use of our cozy space. I always seemed to find excuses to why I was so disorganized ~ no money, lack of space, no help from family members, not wanting to become a nag, procrastination and I'm sure a whole lot more reasons were fit in there. Some were a reality yet others were plain excuses. The sad part is, I would almost always know where something was that when needed but I never could explain it to someone else so therefore was the one searching and wasting more time doing so.

On to the point ~ I read an article in the February issue of Psychology Today that kind of hit home. It was about a lady who was such a pack rat that she saved items from when she was a child and brought them into the marriage using up value space that her family of 10 needed. She had issues with parting with things that made her happy in life. What she learned was that no one could take away the memories and the memories where more valuable than things.

Though my issues are somewhat different ~ not knowing where or how to get started, the items saved have a dollar value, inability to stay focused, the lesson I learned is that things have no value if they are not used. The only value they have is taking up much needed room and eventually time.

I have been slowly cleaning house for the past year....taking hold of personal issues, budgeting, creating a life routine and getting rid of things. This year is my year to make it all work. With prayer and GOD by my side I know I can organize my life to be rid of unused items and personal clutter making it possible for us to life modestly, frugally and lovingly. Knowing that GOD will provide instead of taking all into our own hands is sometimes scary but mostly amazing as HE will always give us what we need when we need it. When HE knows we are ready for it.

This is my year for organization ~ mentally, physically, financially!
