Anyone else getting a little overwhelmed with the posts about spring cleaning and decluttering and feeling so great about your beautiful space in which you live? ugh! One or two of the posts would be great, and motivational, but I've about had it.
I think spring cleaning and decluttering are awesome. Admirable. Wonderful ways to simplify your life. But in the midst of an already overwhelmed life, a tiny apartment, five people to care for, and nowhere to put the stuff I'm spring cleaning, this is absolutely making me crazy.
But I am tired of it, you know? I'm tired of the clutter. I'm tired of feeling like my day is ruined from the moment I wake up because there is so much crap everywhere. I hate crap. I also hate all the stuff that is weighing me down. So, I decided to do something about it. Tonight, as I was making breakfast for dinner and the spatula started falling off the counter because there was NO PLACE TO PUT IT, I "spring cleaned" one of the kitchen counters. You can do what I did in five minutes, just like me! :) My one kitchen counter started out like this:

And you can do it too. It's easy. Just do this:
I put away a few things as I went along but mostly it all got tossed into the bag. I'm going to quickly -- QUICKLY -- go through it and bless someone else with it, toss it, or hmm.... keep it? That sounds totally unappealing. :O
So what's your secret spring cleaning weapon??
