Want to get organized and simplify your life? Nothing sounds better to me! So for the next 5 weeks I'm participating in Project: Simplify over at Simple Mom. Each week Tsh will announce a hot spot in our home. We have the week to declutter, clean, and organize that area and then share the results (including before and after photos) on Friday.
To prepare, Tsh asked everyone to write a family purpose statement. This is an important first step, she says, because, "When you make your home better suited to your family’s purpose, then it’s easier to care about where things go, what stays and goes, and how clean (or disheveled) it is. It’s easier to live there, because it feels like home." Amen!
Billy and I had already started writing a family purpose statement several months ago during one of our date nights, but we never finished it. So last night we brainstormed some ideas and this is what we came up with:
I printed it up, put it in an empty frame I had sitting in drawer, and voila! now our family has a purpose!
