|Retro organisation - Woman's Day 1969|
Herein lies my biggest hurdle. Putting stuff away seems to cause some kind of mental block, it's like the mental-too-hard-basket. I have a few of those baskets lying around the house. I presume psychologists or organisational experts would tell you that if you have decent storage then putting things away becomes easier... well, that's the theory. I have a small house considering there's 5 people living here (100sqm / 1076 sqf). Storage is at a premium and we don't have a garage or basement or decent utility room. I have many times thought about converting our roof space into attic storage but we have been also thinking about a proper second storey addition. I have even given a very brief thought to built-in wardrobes (I have been known to loathe them preferring our beautiful-to-look-at-but-not-as-practical-antique-wardrobes) One day.....
In the meantime, I really need to de-clutter our house. We are starting to get to the stage where we can start giving up the baby stuff, even though I'm not 100% convinced we are done with babies yet (hubby if you are reading this please don't have a coronary). I need to let go of those clothes that I might fit back in to one day.... maybe when I do they will be out of fashion!!
How do you organise your house? Have you got any clever storage solutions you would like to share?
