Slim Down The Mess
The Messy Cabinet
This is the special cabinet for the twins. It’s in the living room and houses games and play clothes. My BIG savings has been on kids clothes! I have several ways I save huge in this area and will share more in the weeks to come. But for now here is my solution for ruined clothes from playing in the yard. When the kids go outside to play or want to do a project that will destroy their clothes, they know to head to the game cabinet and pick out some play clothes. Any clothing in that cabinet is fair game for being ruined. I love it because I just toss it in the garbage if it’s too full of mud, glue, paint or Popsicle juice! No need to wash just toss!
See what 5 minutes of concerted effort gets – clean cabinet and nothing to throw out. Frankly, I was quite surprised that nothing was garbage and all the game pieces were found.
The cabinet serves us well being in the living room. Now, when I have 15 minutes I can grab a matching game or Chinese Checkers and play with the kids. This has added to my Slim Down Summer challenge to slow down! The Slow Down has been the hardest challenge for me because I operate of out of what needs to be done rather than developing relationships. And I am focused on changing!
Big Challenge Ahead –
Coming Later This Week — I have a big challenge for you, because this is really a big challenge for me and I if I don’t share here in a public way, it may never get done!
Think of something big or significant that you really have no use for any longer. You know, that one thing you really like, but doesn’t work in your home any longer. Or something that is significant but really needs to go and you know it.
What is that one Big Thing you need to address? Get ready — we are going to deal with it together. I need the moral support to do it! How about you?
Want to take some control back in your life? Feeling busy and overwhelmed but need encouragement to pull it all together? Me too!! Join me and my friends on TipResource and Slim Down Summer with us and end the summer on a high note!
