Okay it isn’t Spring quite yet but it looks and feels like Spring where I am; thus, I decided to continue my clutter clearing efforts. My closet got a clutter clear out today which resulted in me needing two storage boxes instead of four for my stuff. Later I may figure out how to pare things down even more but for now it is sufficient. I feel quite good about my efforts. It’s great when I can clean and feel happier when finished. Less clutter in my environment means I end up feeling better. Dust, dirt and clutter are all things that contribute to me feeling miserable. Cleaning isn’t loads of fun for me but I appreciate the end results. I like how I can look around and see SPACE that used to be overtaken by either dust or clutter.
The only annoying thing is I am the only one who notices. My dad, whom I live with, never notices if I’ve dusted or not. His vision isn’t great so I guess that’s why. Still, I have to remind myself I clean for myself more than anyone because I notice the difference. My mood is a lot better when I keep up the housework even if I don’t enjoy it. There is a sense of satisfaction I get whilst I’m cleaning and clearing out clutter though. So I guess I enjoy it in a small way. Just don’t ask me to come clean your house!
Is Spring cleaning something you take part in every year? Or do you see it as just another day? My Spring cleaning has been stretched out a bit because there was lots to do. My yard has yet to be cleaned but I’ll save that for another day. I sort of cringe thinking about the yard because it’s a real mess. Lots of pruning to do too. Loads of fun! NOT 😛
