Organizing My Life

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

I don't know if it is because of the new year or what, but I have been all about organizing and clearing out my life this past week. It started with reorganizing my office space and ended with removing facebook page likes and all in all, it feels amazing to be more organized. It's like a complete fresh start.

So, what exactly have I been organizing this past week?

  • My office space. This was in die need of some cleaning up and organizing. It will probably last all of a week or two, but it's something that needed to be done. I feel much more at peace and relaxed if I have a clean, organized office space where I can find what I am looking for!
  • All family paperwork. It started with buying a new filing cabinet and sorting ALL paperwork - bills, agreements, warranties, purchases, etc into correct folders. No more stacks of papers scattered around the home! Everything has it's own folder now.
  • My closet. This was a goal of mine back in November and it's finally done! I organized all of my clothes and finally said goodbye to my favourite jeans I've held onto for years, hoping that I would fit back into them someday! Sad to see them go, but I'm happy that I've accepted the fact that my body is changing and even if I did fit into them again, I probably shouldn't be wearing them at this point in my life, haha.
  • Facebook. I removed all facebook pages that I had liked and no longer have any interest in. My feed was so clogged up that I barely looked or paid attention to pages that I am actually interested in.
  • Bloglovin. I cleaned up my bloglovin list of blogs that I follow. Same as facebook - it will make it much easier to read and comment blogs that I am actually interested in now! It's exciting to actually be able to keep up with the blogs I care about. I still want to get this number down, but for now, it's workable for me.

Next up? Getting our basement cleaned out and organized. This might lead to a yard sale in the Spring, but we will see.



  1. You know organizing is my favorite! Nicely done so far, good luck on the basement!

    1. Yes! I've been so jealous (and inspired) by your organization skills!
      And the basement will take a while, I really regret just piling things down there when we moved in, instead of taking the time and unpacking everything! We've only been here a few months, but the basement is about 50% full of random boxes and totes, floor to ceiling, haha.

  2. I do a "spring cleaning" on FB every so often and it's so refreshing. One of these days I'll get rid of it all together... one of these days.

    I also did a clean out recently of my Bloglovin' feed because I still use GFC for the most part and want to get into using Bloglovin more and it was a hot mess :-P

  3. I've kinda been doing the same thing!! It feels really good to sort of clean up different areas of my life!

  4. Sometimes it just feels SO good to get a few things in your life in order! Speaking of which, I need to organize my desk space some kind of bad.

  5. i'm currently doing a blog houseclean as well and removing blogs that just haven't posted in months or who legit ignore me! what's that about?!

    Vodka and Soda

  6. ahhh I have so much organizing that needs done too. my facebook and bloglovin feeds are out of control as well! totally need to get them better organized.
