It might seem like a trivial thing but any homeowner will tell you, when you buy a new home you expect to do a lot of thing. You expect them to happen right away, like it’s easy to just make a comfortable, organized and full home in a month.
I have lived in my house for 7 months now! Which, is so exciting… but day to day there are things that I look at and say “man, I really need to get this or that done, yet tasks always seem to fall by the wayside”.
One of my big things has been to hang a coat rack. Particularly, living in Colorado during the winter, I have 2-5 coats in rotation that I use on a regular basis. Typically they end up in a pile by my front door. BUT NO MORE!
I hung a coat rack today and like I said, though it may seem trivial, I absolutely love how much more organized and decluttered it makes me feel. Sometimes the smallest tasks are the best.
Today is just one of those days where the task is simple, short and easy.
It is always nice to have some new clothes, and it seems I always need new jeans.
Task complete. ✅
Ask any of my three sisters… my mom… my dad… even my brother… I don’t shop. When I do, it is to get something specific and get out.
So as part of my things to do for the year, I added Shop just to Shop.
It might seem like a strange thing. And the plan was to spend no money. And I didn’t. I just kept thinking… I could buy this, but if I really needed it I would have planned a shopping day and went and bought it.
I almost felt uncomfortable. Not something I particularly enjoyed… just not enough of a girl I guess…
I am in no way a fashionista. And I don’t buy expensive things. But every once in a while you need some fresh new things to wear. So I bought new top, jeans, shoes, a bra, socks, earrings and even a new scent to wear. It will feel good to go into work one day soon feeling fresh and new.
