Looking for Sparks of Joy in 2016

How many organization ideas have I tried?  How many have failed?

On my last trip to the bookstore (and by the way I am not a paid sponsor for this book), I came across this book:  The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, so I thought I'd take a peak.  The first thing that caught my eye and spoke to me was this quote:

We should be choosing what we want to keep, not what we want to get rid of... take each item and ask:  "Does this spark joy?"  If it does, keep it.  If not, dispose of it.

As one of those "creative types" -- I hate to throw anything away for fear that later on I could use it in some clever way.  But, the time has come to start purging... so I bought the book (kind of ironic that I added one more thing to my home when I should be purging, huh?)

With that, I have purged one thing from my closet so far... lol.  My journey continues.  I am determined, nonetheless.

Have you purged lately?  What successful technique do you have for organization?

Wishing you joy this 2016!

  1. I am so bad at getting rid of things, I get too attached and am a very sentimental person, especially if it is something that was handmade for me. But I really need to do this that's for sure
