A Squared: The Urge to Purge

The Urge to Purge

Lately I have been feeling the urge to purge-- no, not that kind of purging (ew!)-- purging of the "stuff" variety.  Maybe I'm getting anxious for spring and some spring cleaning or maybe it's because I have been spending so much time hibernating in my apartment that I am so sick of looking at everything here, but recently I have been all about de-cluttering my space.

I've been sorting through my closet and drawers and discarding unworn and tired items.  I have combed through my freezer and cupboards and then planned meals around the random leftover ingredients I have been saving there. And I have spent hours sorting, filing, and shredding old paperwork... this includes resumes I used in college, every bank statement from an account that was closed 4 years ago, and every "inspiration" page I pulled from every wedding magazine in the years 2010 and 2011. How. Embarrassing.  Even worse?  I don't even feel like I have made a dent!

I plan to keep plugging away at this project over the next few winter weekends with the hope that I can start spring feeling calm and clutter free.  Sounds like a good plan, right?  If you're interested in doing the same, I have scoured Pinterest and found a few great infographics (and everyone loves a good infographic!) to help you tackle your home organization projects.

Happy de-cluttering!
