This guest post is another peek at what’s in store for Mom’s Morning Coffee! Kim Pittman will be writing periodically for us on getting organized at home and at the job. She welcomes your feedback and comments via email.
When talking with people about their organizational challenges I often use a word picture to get a point across. People often think and express that they need a bigger house, but that’s not always the case. I have seen that the bigger the house, the more stuff that is acquired and when it boils down to it, there is no place ever big enough.
Our house is what we have to live in, whether big or small. Our challenge is learning to live within our means.
I often tell people that their house is like their finances. If you spend more money than you make, you eventually end up in trouble and upside down. The challenge is learning to spend only what you make and no more. Your home is no different. If you bring more “stuff” in your house than it can hold, you eventually will have the same problem and become overwhelmed and frustrated because of the lack of space for everything.
So what about you? Do you find yourself needing a bigger house?
Remember that for everything that comes in your house, something must leave your house in order to maintain some sort of balance.
