Clear Space = Clear Minds

Clear Eyes - Quote

Sorry – I couldn’t not include a Friday Night Lights quote, after naming this post.

With the change of seasons, comes the change of our wardrobe choices, our eating habits, and most likely a few other minor changes.

Since fall is my favourite season I want to make the most of it, and feel the best that I can. So I decided to do a little “Fall Cleaning”. Not only of rooms, and cabinets, but also of my life.

*** Let me start of by saying how embarrassed I am of these before photos. I do apologize in advance.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but a clean bedroom, or a clean house, always makes you feel more at ease, more relaxed, and most likely happier and less stressed.

I decided it was time to tackle my makeup vanity in my bathroom as well as my room.

The last month has been quite busy for me, and instead of being smart and staying on top of things (like cleaning my space) I let things get out of control and pile up.

Exhibit B - The just as horrifying Makeup Vanity

It got to the point where just  the look of both of these rooms stressed me out. That’s when I decided to take my one free night last week and get to cleaning.

After 4 hours I got a lot of what I wanted done accomplished.

A week later and both areas look just as clean! I have made my bed everyday, and have also put my clothes away on a daily basis. Having spaces this clean eases the mind, and honestly just makes everything better.

This past weekend I decided I wanted to do even more. I went through all of my clothes. I neatly stored away all of my summer clothes, and I brought out the fall/winter sweaters. After going through my clothes I was able to donate three garbage bags full of clothes.

At the beginning of the summer I owned 32 dresses, I then bought a few more the last couple of months. Yesterday as part of my purge I got rid of more than ten dresses. That’s a big deal to me. I still have a few cabinets to go but my life is just about clear.
