The last few days I've been doing some SimpleSpacing in our little home.
Very few things in life make me as peaceful, happy, and grateful
as having a clean, organized, simplified home.
For those of you who are new readers, the term "SimpleSpaces" was developed by my mother, who wrote a book about simplifying life and spaces. The principles in the book have already changed my life (I've been observing and living the principles as I've grown up and learned from my mom), and I have no doubt they have and will continue to change others' lives.
We had too many books and not enough room for the things we needed easy access to. Since bedroom #2 is a nursery, our office has been moved to our bedroom. This move has significantly limited the amount of space we have for personal files, folders, notebooks, journals, etc.
My mom so generously gave us a bookcase to put in the living room, which would make it possible to move many of the books from our room into the living room. Yay!
Need more storage.
By painting and using the large bookcase and moving some things around we were able to greatly increase the amount of storage space in the living room. We moved most all of our books out of our bedroom, and were also able to display a few more decorations.
Needed a system for files and papers.
My parents were also so generous in giving us a small file cabinet that just happened to work perfectly with our desk. We were able to move almost everything out of Baby's room and into our office/bedroom. Our printer had also been in Baby's closet for nearly a year, and we were finally able to move it closer.
Thank you mom!
