Happy New Year! If you’re anything like me, you made a New Year resolution to start being more organized. It’s something I have always meant to do, but no matter how many times I have tried, I always lose myself to the clutter. This year, I’m taking a new approach to decluttering my room and apartment, and I think it’s actually going to work this time. I’m starting in my room first because there have been so many occasions where I spend time looking for something that just wasn’t where it was supposed to be. Take my yarn stash: I keep all my extra skeins of yarn
I’m starting in my room first because I always spend time looking for something that just wasn’t where it was supposed to be. Take my yarn stash: I keep all my extra skeins of yarn on a bookshelf, where each shelf is a different yarn weight. So why couldn’t I find my super-bulky purple yarn when I had a craving to work up a quick slouchy crochet hat? As it turns out, that skein of yarn found itself in a bag next to my desk. Had I just tried little harder, I’d be able to keep track of things and live a slightly less stressful life.
