Surface clutter (on countertops, tables, etc.) stresses me out.
Coincidentally, I tend to build up a lot of surface clutter.
In other words, I'm frequently stressed out!
So last Friday, I decided it was time to declutter in my kitchen and dining room. The countertops, kitchen bar, table, and sidebar had gotten really cluttered. But it had been a busy week, and I knew I probably didn't have time to really sort through everything with the time I had available Friday afternoon.
Enter...the magic bins.
I grabbed a big ol' Rubbermaid storage bin from the garage and filled it up.
When it was full, I started on another.
I set them in the dining room. I barely started sorting all the stuff on Friday, and I finished yesterday afernoon.
The cool thing about my magic bins is that they themselves aren't very stressful to me. So this weekend I was able to relax, with the bar between my kitchen and living room beautifully clear of junk. I even put the flowers Chickie picked me (thanks to the ridiculous number of weeds this year) into a vase.
Thanks, magic bins, for making an onerous task feel doable.
