I throw a lot of things away. I love to purge and get rid of anything we have not used in 3 months. I realized I do this in order to avoid cleaning. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I purge something. After getting rid of crap I no longer feel the need to clean the room where I purged because I just purged it so its clean. All this leaves me with is organized dirty house.
What good is an organized house when I can't find my favorite cookie press. I can't find the darn thing because I gave it away. Today I will clean my house from the weekend and instead of throwing stuff in the trash (unless it is trash) I will actually clean the house: vacuum, dust, windows, laundry.
I think cleaning is so daunting because I know it will just get messy again. Well, clean it anyway because living in filth is just gross and I don't wanna be gross.
