Binge, Purge

I think I have a problem, I go through these stages of trying to collect everything that catches my eye and then a few weeks later I look through my 300ish sq.ft apartment that I share with my very tolerant boyfriend and think where am I going to put it all. And then i try to purge.

This isn't anything new, I've always been this way, I want to be a minimalist but I adore eclectic interiors with their quirky elements. But having done this for so long I will think about items that I once owned and then immediately look everywhere for it only to come up empty handed (after several phone calls to all of the households that may have my possessions lingering. And although some people would suggest renting storage there is no way that I can justify spending money to house insignificant stuff.

I know I posted about spring cleaning a little while ago, but I honestly didn't do it. I had the best intentions but like so many other times I am like a goldfish and find something else to occupy my time with. And maybe I can't tear myself away from my precious things.

The remedy? Take some time and get a little perspective. I think the cure is going to be a result of finding better storage solutions that both showcase and organize my things, purge a few things that I really wont miss, and finish some projects (their materials are what is taking up a lot of the space!).

So next week I am going to have a plan of attack and a few ideas to share with you all about hot to keep sane, organized and still keep some of the things you love. Oh and do some projects.

Thanks for listening!
