Who? ME? Just because I want everything to have it's very OWN place????
Not only have I been hit with the organizing bug.....BUT, I have also been hit with the "Savings" bug. I've made myself a jar for this and a jar for that.... I told Sam that he needs to keep a close watch on me and if I start burying the jars out in the yard, then he just needs to slap me back to normal.
I feel like something must have taken over my body during my sleeping hours......and changed my whole inner thinking..... It must have been during the wee hours of the night....just before Christmas. Maybe Santa really did come and maybe he spread some of his Christmas magic on me!!
If all this enthusiasm stays with me......I'm sure to be a Thousandaire" by the end of the year!!
I'm sure to be known as the Organizing Queen!!
Check this out.......There's not a single thing about this that I don't LOVE.
Don't get me wrong.....I've always kept a clean home and I've been somewhat organized. I'm one of those people that likes to have everything picked up and in it's place. For several years....(when I was younger and didn't know any better)....I kept my counter tops, absolutely free of any kind of clutter. This included a coffee pot, toaster, and even canisters! I've had a powerful breakthrough since then, and I do keep things OUT on the counters, that make life easy in the kitchen.
Right now, I have a strong desire to do a better job and to save more money. There are so many ways that I can cut back on spending......I just have to apply myself to making sure that it is done.
Number 1....... is to refuse getting hung up in the material scheme of things. This world that we live in is full of material things. We all want the BEST of everything. The newest phone and all of the newest kinds of gadgets. I can be content with what I have!!
The other day.......I overheard someone saying that the "IN" thing for this season is to make sure that your closet has a pair of Brown Boots in it. Seems that the new fad is to wear brown boots with black slacks!! I have three different pairs of black boots in my closet and none of them even have a scratch on em'. Is it really important for me to buy a new pair of Brown boots, just because everyone else is doing it? I didn't think so either.
I can look just as cute as fashionable wearing my black boots with a Brown pair of slacks!!
I'm laughing out loud right now.....this thought "cracks me up!!!!"
Number 2....... It's the wasting of food! The truth is, I don't like to eat leftovers of any kind. The only way that I can make any sense of this is in knowing that as a kid......we didn't eat leftovers!!
There were NO leftovers when we finished a meal. We always had Plenty to eat, but nothing was ever leftover. My mom fixed three meals a day and all three were completely different kinds of meals.
Number 3...... every time that I want to pull into a drive-thru to grab a coke or snack......Take that money and put it in a sealed container and keep on driving! I can easily bring a snack and a container of water with me when I have to go somewhere. Surely I can make some kind of game out of it. Like..keeping count of the drive-thru's that I pass up throughout the year!
It's a new year.....a new start.....a new kind of clean.....and a new way of life!!
Life is good......oh yes it is!!
