Peepette no. 20
After moving halfway across the country, it was important that the few things we brought with us were well organized in our new home (apartment – they are homes too) and more important that they would be ready to go for our next move. Now, don’t get the wrong idea – we are not living nomadicly out of boxes. Simply put, I have “a place for everything and everything in its place.” All of this made possible by a trip to the Container Store. One of a Nestlettes best kept secrets.
Upon walking in to the store for the first time, I could already feel my new living space transform. Greeted by a display of clear plastic storage boxes – I grabbed a few of every size and eventually came back for more. But more than boxes, there is quite possibly a solution for everything! And on the Container Store website, there are more tips that go beyond organization (i.e., how to gift well).
Peepette no. 20: A Nestlette does not like clutter
(not in the brain, not in the house).
A Nestlette does not sweep things under the rug or shove things in the closet. She faces the clutter and handles it appropriately (i.e., creating a donation pile and heading over to Goodwill). She does not contribute to clutter and knows when to let things go.
Things that do not need to be kept: Anything you took because it was free, anything you bought because it was “a steal of a deal” or anything you accepted merely out of guilt because no one else wanted it and it met something to someone else.
That being said, a Nestlette also knows when to keep things too (shoes).
